“We launched Live at the Center to provide music to our patrons and opportunities for local musicians during the pandemic, and the response from both sides has shown that we filled an important niche,” stated Jeffrey C. McDermott, president and CEO of the Center for the Performing Arts. “Now, with the easing of public health concerns, we’re excited to build on that foundation and welcome live audiences into the process, while still serving the broader community online and offering this high-profile opportunity for artists based in Central Indiana.”

Free to view on YouTube, Facebook and the Center’s website, Live at the Center delivers a front-row perspective on the best in local original music, with multi-camera HD video and rich stereo sound. More information on tickets and viewing options is available at
