The Art of Music
Jam on the Rocks Productions proudly presents The Art of Music at Old Town Artisan Studios. Inspired by the mission of OTAS, this new series fuses musical performance with conversation, education, and storytelling. Each presentation will focus on an element of musical theory, history, genre or style by featuring expert musicians here to share their craft. Join us on the historic Old Town Artisan Studios campus and be swept up by the beautiful surroundings, engaging community, and world-renowned talent.
Presentations will take place every second Thursday of the month. Doors will open at 5:00pm. Music will begin at 6:00pm. General Admission seating is available on a first-come basis. Light refreshments will be available for purchase. Tickets are sold for each individual concert.
It is a joy to be bringing The Art of Music to our ever-growing artistic community.
All proceeds from ticket sales will contribute to our extensive Outreach Program, through which we provide art experiences to the underserved members of our community. Be sure to stay in touch—there will certainly be more to come as this series grows. We look forward to seeing you there!
Masks are recommended for those that are not vaccinated.
