Meeting: Jasper Community Arts CommissionMarch 6, 2019
The Jasper Community Arts Commission met Tuesday and:
• Heard a February recap from Arts Director Kyle Rupert. The Forever Young performance had a fantastic turnout, he said, and magician the Amazing Max’s show brought in the largest crowd at a family event since 2013.
• Also heard from Rupert that pianist and singer Matt Beilis will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Jasper Arts Center. The performance is sold-out and has a waiting list, so those who have tickets but know they can’t make it or don’t plan on using them are encouraged to return their tickets. On Friday, March 15, The Good Humor Men will bring a night of comedy to the Astra Theatre. Tickets to that performance are still available.
