Everything you've ever wanted to know about Chandler Center for the Arts

Monday Mashup: No More Lazy Summer Days

Because we have things to do around here!

On Friday we had the Sun Lakes Big Band, even though they admitted on stage that not many of their members live in Sun Lakes. They played some amazing Frank Sinatra and old school Glenn Miller (Can you have anything other than old school Glenn Miller? I’m talking about the really early stuff).

I didn’t get any video, but that was because everyone was being amazing and wanted to take part in our drawing with the Downtown Chandler Art Walk! You ladies and gents make me blush. Any time I get it into my head that I want to do some kind of contest or drawing or raffle, even with only a few days notice, you come out and participate and make me feel all warm and glowy. I have this fear that I sit out with something fun to do, and no one will show up. But thankfully, it’s a completely unfounded fear, because you are awesome.

And back to our regular Monday Mashup format.

This weekend we have two shows: Brian Chartrand & The Voce Project, as part of our Free Summer Concert Series and Hollywood Sings: Classic Cinema Songs  (with the lovely as ever Krsiten Drathman, who is our camp director).

Brian is taking the stage at the Center on Friday night at 7:30 with his twist on jazz. I gave him a listen the other day and his music sounds like a mix of jazz, rock and something that resembled bluegrass. He makes it all work. Like I said, he’ll be here Friday (August 24) and the show starts at 7:3opm, seating starts at 7:00pm and the doors open at 6:30. Seating is first come, first served and we will gladly accept any donations that you throw our way.

On Saturday night we’re back with our second installment of our 3 Evenings For The Arts fundraiser, and we’re really looking forward to building off the successes of our last show with Joe Bourne. As with our last show, there will be a live auction, silent auction and raffle, with wine tasting starting at 6:30. Make sure you keep an eye on your bids too, last time there were a few bidding wars…..

You can still get tickets to Hollywood Sings here. If you want tickets to the last two shows, call our box office at 480-782-2680.
