Performing Arts is dedicated to presenting the evolutionary visions
of contemporary artists. Via powerful, exciting performances of new
music, artistic collaborations and by touring local communities we reach
out to new audiences and demonstrate that The Arts are among the most
vital of human endeavors.
Though centered firmly in the classical music tradition, we stimulate
diversity and include in our concerts and festivals other artistic disciplines
and styles of music making, including multicultural approaches and the
talents of artists from local communities and from afar.

a number of tales of his manner of Death, but when he died Zeus rewarded
his service by making him the constellation Sagittarius.
