Bringing world-class Jazz to our classrooms
and the historic Cactus Hotel for over two decades
As part of our mission to “Enhance the arts and culture of San Angelo and the Concho Valley” the San Angelo Cultural Affairs Council presents the Cactus Music Series, filling a void in our community by presenting high quality musicianship from the expansive genres of jazz. Surrounded by the historic grandeur of the Cactus Hotel, the audience savors a concert experience unlike any other. Local, school-based jazz bands open each show and then attend admission free to learn from musical masters!
The 2012 series consists of three concerts by notable artists. Additionally, our Elementary Guest Artist Program brings three more outstanding artists to our local elementary schools each spring semester.
It takes your financial support to bring talent of this caliber to San Angelo. For many of our guests, this series is the only Southwestern date they will perform!
The Best Seats in the House: Reserved seating will only be available to sponsors. A sponsorship at any level guarantees you a great view of the performances. With premium seating, you can provide a fun-filled night on the town for your valued customers, top-performing employees or treasured friends. It is a memorable way to thank them for their ongoing support.
After-Concert Party: Following the first concert of the Fall Season (September 14th), you will be invited to a special gathering with the featured band!
Membership: As a sponsor of the Cactus Music Series you automatically become a member of the San Angelo Cultural Affairs Council and receive additional benefits.
