ANNOUNCEMENT: We’ve added a seventh show to the 2017-18 season! On March 14, 2018, the Air Force Band of Mid-America’s Shades of Blue jazz ensemble will be performing at the PAC. Please check out details for this show under “Upcoming Shows.” The Arts Council is honored to be a part of this concert that inspires patriotism, connects communities with military service members, and honors our country’s veterans.
