The Diablo Regional Arts Association (DRAA) enriches the lives of thousands of East Bay residents every year by supporting programs at Walnut Creek’s Lesher Center for the Arts (LCA). Through its well-established business and community partnerships, fundraising and marketing expertise, we help arts organizations present professional-level theater, music and dance performances, visual arts exhibitions, and family events. This year marks DRAA’s fourth successful season as a presenter with a four-concert summer series that showcases top international musicians in the great American art form – Jazz. Learn more about this summer’s upcoming season at We are proud to bring this popular genre to the intimacy of the 300-seat Margaret Lesher Theatre.

DRAA also sponsors activities to bring underserved students and other populations to enjoy artistic opportunities at the Lesher Center. The hundreds of shows staged annually at the Lesher Center—with DRAA’s assistance—enhance the East Bay’s cultural and economic vitality and the region’s overall quality of life.
