Three Stages at Folsom Lake College has changed its name to Harris Center for the Arts.
But, rest assured, the quality of artistry, cultural offerings and customer service you’ve come to expect remains constant and unchanged.
“The new name fittingly honors Brice Harris, the recently retired chancellor of the Los Rios Community College District,” Harris Center Executive Director Dave Pier explains. “He, together with then president of the college, Thelma Scott-Skillman, was perhaps most responsible for seeing the vision of a regional performing arts center for our community realized.”
This month, there’s a wonderful array of entertainment on tap. For three very special evenings (August 2-4), Pamela Hayes Classical Ballet Theatre is proud to present An Evening at the Ballet. The comedy, romance, beautiful costuming and uplifting music promises to be a wonderful evening for all ages.
From August 5-7, in three not-to-be-missed shows, legendary singer and songwriter Kenny Loggins brings his classic mix of rock, country and jazz alive.
World-renowned, Grammy Award-winning pianist, composer and educator Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra will hit the stage August 11. Enjoy Latin rhythms, clave and African-based percussion instruments, as well as modern jazz and swing, at this culturally rich concert.
