Live Performances

We host live performances by local musicians throughout the year.  We’ve hosted jazz and swing bands, KW Symphony quartets, a cappella groups, folk singer-songwriters, and themed performances of Oktoberfest, Cinco de Mayo, and Christmas music.

These events are free to the public, but our musicians are paid. Please help support these important arts and culture events in your community.
