Highlights of Past Performances

Since June 2008, Kalamazoo Public Library—long recognized for its excellence in programming—has provided patrons with an occasional series of unique, intimate concert performances featuring local and nationally recognized artists from a variety of musical genres.

With the kind consent of the artists, many of these unique events have been preserved in the form of video, audio, photographs and commentary.
