LPAC Brochure Letter from Mayor
The City of Lancaster is a city of progress. Our history reflects the heart of our Valley’s culture and our never-ceasing push towards advancement, growth and development. From the first settlers who struggled to create a mainstay in this area for their families, to the wondrous feats of our many honored test pilots and countless others who established the footprint of the Antelope Valley upon our nation; the pulse of our great City has always beat loud and strong.
Any thriving community possesses several key factors which nourish its vitality; a sustainable infrastructure, a stable economic environment, a progressive educational system, and a supportive atmosphere for recreation and fine arts. Cultivation of the arts has been an instrumental factor in our community’s evolution. This year, we not only celebrate the 20th season of our Lancaster Performing Arts Center (LPAC), but we also celebrate 20 years of cultural growth which has led us to a most exciting and inspiring path of transformation.
Downtown Lancaster is our City’s center, and as we watch it unfold anew as “The BLVD”, LPAC is the vital anchor in its revitalization, serving as the entertainment core of our community. In 2010/11, visitors and locals alike can expect great performances from groups like The Manhattan Transfer and War. Additional all-time favorites include Al Jarreau, Michael Bolton, and the incomparable Natalie Cole. Patrons will also delight in local artists, such as the Antelope Valley Ballet.
Each year, the LPAC line-up grows bigger and stronger; offering something for every taste and age. It is the place to be entertained, enjoy music, and immerse in the arts. And with the many additions to The BLVD offering wonderful cuisine; you’ll never have to watch a show on an empty stomach.
I encourage everyone to visit The BLVD this season and experience the Lancaster Performing Arts Center. The performances are amazing; the prices are affordable; and the staff is always smiling.
