Having celebrated its 10th anniversary season, Aiken Performing Arts is proud to be an integral part of the performing arts scene in Aiken, consistently presenting world-class live entertainment to sold-out audiences and receiving rave reviews!
Chartered with a two-fold mission of presenting quality professional artists to audiences in a theater setting and providing quality educational outreach programs to students in the greater Aiken community, APA has succeeded beyond its wildest dreams.
Over the course of the past ten years, APA has presented outstanding shows from all genres of music – including classical, jazz, brass, chamber, bluegrass, big band, Broadway, ethnic, rock and roll, and oldies – performed by nationally and internationally acclaimed individual vocalists and instrumentalists, bands and full orchestras. Dance, comedy, satire and variety programs have also been on the bill. (Click here for a complete overview of past presentations.)
The artists presented at the theater have also performed outstanding educational outreach programs for many hundreds of Aiken County students, either at the theater or in the schools, sometimes traveling many miles on very little sleep and performing in very challenging circumstances. They have never failed to provide their best, and always garner standing ovations from these student audiences. (Click on our Outreach pages for details: Schools, Community.)
APA truly is a major contributor to the quality of life in Aiken and its surrounding communities and the largest provider of educational outreach programming in the CSRA. The organization is an important contributor to the image of Aiken as a good place to live and do business. APA impacts both the cultural and economic vitality of the greater Aiken area.
