LIVE is a performance series celebrating home-grown and regional performance art of all genres. From songwriters to gospel singers, poets to musicians, jazz to contemporary dance, MMofA is interested in the rare talents that heat and humidity can inspire. The performance is in Larkins Auditorium.

Thursday, June 21 @ 7 p.m.

Lisa Mills‘ music is often described as melodic, raw, unfettered and, most important, searingly honest. Her music ranges from blues and country to gospel and soul. Come out to support and celebrate regional and local talent in an intimate setting.
