Holiday Jazz

The Emporia Arts Council is spreading holiday joy with our next performance of our Performing Arts Series.

Holiday Jazz | November 30th | Emporia Granada Theatre | 7:00pm

A nine-piece ensemble of world-class jazz artists from throughout the U.S. perform a collection of well-known Holiday favorites with a jazz twist. The “Holiday Jazz” ensemble is co-led by renowned jazz drummer and native Emporian Jack Mouse and his wife, internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist Janice Borla. 

Esteemed artists of the ensemble include:
Saxophonist Scott Robinson, Trumpeter Mike Steinel, Trombonist Steve Wiest, Vibraphonist Brad Stirtz, Guitarist Fareed Haque, Pianist Pat Coil and Bassist Alex Austin.

The Jubilee Ringers hand bell choir will provide entrance music under the Granada marquee as the doors open at 6:00pm.

We are excited to announce that this performance is FREE, provided by our donor’s generosity! Tickets are available at the Emporia Arts Center located at 815 Commercial St. Tickets will be required to attend this performance, get yours today!

This is an amazing experience that we want you to be a part of! We only have 7 slots left! If you are interested contact Sarah Bulinski at by Thursday.

Veterans Glass Blowing Workshop

The Emporia Arts Council is excited to announce our Veterans Glass Blowing Workshop with April Lemon!

As the founding city of Veterans Day, we Emporians take pride in honoring those that served our country. This year we will be adding something special – just an extra “thank you” to these Vets. We will be having an all out event with Kansas featured artist April Lemon. On November 3rd, Emporia Arts Center will be bringing her to our town! She will be working exclusively with Veterans (who have signed up with EAC) in her mobile glass unit.

It’s an all day event to honor those who have served, and we thought it only fitting to have April as she, herself, is a veteran. Come take in the fun, see art being made, have something yummy to eat and celebrate our Veterans! We will have food trucks and the Emil Babinger Art Mobile will be there as well.

For more information, please contact Emporia Arts Center – 620-343-6473
