Like last year’s Marathon, proceeds this year will enhance the Performing Arts area in the East Gallery. Audience participation last year helped fund much-needed new stage lighting. This year’s Marathon will focus on videography, improved stage appearance, and more comfortable seating.

The generosity of both bands and audience participation makes this night very special, and Jacoby Arts Center is grateful to all who participate in this annual event. For six years the LIVE at Jacoby: Saturday Nights concerts have sustained audience enthusiasm, and Jacoby is thrilled that the community is benefiting from the many outstanding performers who are equally as enthused to play at Jacoby.
