Bravo!  This was an amazing performance!  Its the hidden gem of the season! 

Stockton was magnificent as he escorted the audience through a magical, musical history lesson of the Great American Art Form called JAZZ!  Stockton and the Florence Area Big Band delighted the audience with favorites from the masters, Duke Ellington and Count Basie, and then charmed us with a score of Stockton’s original music!  

The Florence Regional Arts Alliance would like to thank everyone for supporting this Fundraising Jazz Concert, A Valentines To Remember!

Thank you to Business Partners supporting The Arts:

Honda of South Carolina, King Cadillac GMC, and Edible Arrangements of Florence! 

Special Thank You to Francis Marion University, Stockton Helbing, and the musicians of the Florence Area Big Band for their incredible performance.
