The Illinois College Fine Arts Series kicks off its 41st season bringing outstanding, inspiring music to the Jacksonville area.

2020 - 2021 Upcoming Series Events

Saturday, April 17, 2021 :: 7:30 p.m. :: Virtual Performance

We conclude our 41st season with the renowned Stan Kenton Legacy Orchestra. Alumni from the 1956-1978 Stan Kenton orchestras, plus some fine young new members, come together to perform some of the well known music of the Stan Kenton Orchestra; plus, in keeping with Kenton's insistence on not just performing nostalgic music, the orchestra performs fresh material written in the Kenton style, as well as original material by members of the band. Don't miss this 18-piece big band, which is carrying on Kenton's tradition of dedication to creative music and jazz education.

If you'd like to ensure that we can continue to bring varied and exciting arts opportunities to the Jacksonville community, please consider making a gift to Illinois College Fine Arts Series today
