Presented by Diablo Regional Arts Association

The Diablo Regional Arts Association is committed to elevating the quality and professionalism of performing arts in Contra Costa County. Our support of drama, classical music, dance, and musical theater at the Lesher Center has enriched the community and helped to establish the Lesher Center as the cultural hub of the East Bay. But missing from the area’s performing arts scene is jazz as performed by instrumentalists and vocalists of the top rank. Now, in our fifth year as a presenter, DRAA is once again offering a concert series featuring internationally acclaimed jazz artists.
2017 Schedule:

Terell Stafford

Cyrille Aimée
August 12, 2017 @ 5pm & 8pm
As a child, Cyrille Aimée wandered the gypsy encampments around Samois-sur-Seine, falling in love with the gypsies’ music, life, freedom. Today, this jazz singer is internationally renowned for her unique, wild and improvisational musical vision.

With the unmistakable rhythm and romance of the Latin side of jazz in his music and voice, Kingston, Jamaica-born pianist Monty Alexander delights a global audience with his joyful melody-making, soulful message, and vibrant personality.
