Passing showers are not going to diminish the fun we will have listening to the Bottoms Up Dixieland Band. Come on down with your lawn chairs and enjoy!



We expect that the crowd for the Tito Puente event this Friday evening is possibly going to be very large.

As a result, it may be necessary for us to restrict access to the venue at some point prior to the start of the concert due to safety concerns.

SpecialTito Puente Supporter Tickets Available Until 6-19-22


This year’s concerts herald a newly landscaped concert lawn thanks to Julie and Henry Boyd and family. It has magically transformed our humble area by Lake Carmel, with a level lush lawn, and more room for our audience and our stage. Wait till you see it!

However, in taking down our previous stage, we discovered that it was simply not reusable and as a result we are building a new stage. This has been an unexpected expense for us, which on top of the years of Covid, puts us in the position of asking our audience for a special stage rebuilding ticket contribution. While we continue with our "pay-as-you-wish" tradition we are asking our audiences to help us out if they are able.


For the Tito Puente Jr. concert, we are putting aside tickets as special “Special Evening” tickets at $40 which are reserved seats in Rows 1 & 2. Or, you can also support us with “Friend of Summer Concert Series” tickets at $25 which provides seats in Rows 3-10 close to the stage on either side of the dance floor.


In addition if we do have to move the concert inside because of rain, you will be guaranteed a spot inside.

Overall, admission will remain on a “pay what you wish” allowing anyone to come and enjoy this and all the other concert evenings.


We hope to raise enough funds to pay for the rebuilding of the stage. Please help us by buying these special supporter tickets!

Electricity is back on at Center

 Following an outage at Center last evening it is back to normal.

Center's Covid Policy

Due to the increased number of Covid cases in our area we are postponing all indoor activities at this time until it is safe for us to hold indoor activities.

Life Drawing Is Cancelled

Due to a problem with the heat in the main room, we have to cancel the Life Drawing Session for this evening.

Passing Of Midhat Serbagi

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Midhat Serbagi. He was the founder of the Friends of Classical Music and an important member of the Arts on the Lake extended family.


The concert of the Beacon Song Circle (Songsmiths) will be inside this evening due to the weather and a 100% chance of rain at 7 PM!  Please come anyway and enjoy our last summer concert.  We will supply chairs. You are still welcome to bring food and drink. Masks are required when inside.

Dixieland Concert Tonight

Well we we hoping for the weather to move quickly and it has! We are going OUTSIDE tonight!  Bring your chairs, food, drink and an umbrella for a passing shower which are getting less and less likely during the later half of the concert! Come out and join us!



Life Drawing is Starting Up!

The in person Life Drawing Sessions are starting up again. You can find the listing under the classes. We ask that all those who attend are vaccinated or that masks are worn.
