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, DRAA also makes its debut as a presenter, launching the new Jazz at the Lesher four-concert summer series that showcases top international musicians and vocalists. We are proud to bring a new genre and popular style of music to the Lesher Center for the Arts.
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.
