The Jefferson Performing Arts Center
In 1978, Jefferson Performing Arts Society
(JPAS) first had the idea to build a major performing arts building for the community. On June 20, 37 years later, JPAS invites the public to an opening gala for the new, state-of-the-art performance venue.
June 20's Gala Premiere Concert will feature performances by Branford Marsalis and the Joey Calderazzo Duo
, Delta Festival Ballet, Jefferson Ballet
and Spud McConnell, among others. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m. There will be Champagne and light refreshments.
The Palace for the Arts features an acoustically designed interior, a 51-ft. proscenium arch stage with a mechanical orchestra lift, a theatrical fly rigging system, a full bar, nearly a dozen dressing rooms and a VIP guest lounge.
