The Koger Center for the Arts, in downtown Columbia, is proud to bring back a season of Live in the Lobby: Koger Center Jazz and welcomes you to take part in this unique series!

Created as a partnership between the Koger Center for the Arts and the ColaJazz Foundation, Koger Center Jazz will consist of concerts held in the dynamic, open expanse of the Koger Center lobby curated to embody a specific style and era of jazz music.  New this season will be the addition of the Behind the Curtain performances which will take place with the audience and the performers together on the Koger Center for the Arts stage.  Thirty minutes before start time, the concerts will kick off with an optional dynamic discussion between the artist and the audience about the music they are about to hear.  Join us to experience this one-of-a-kind concert series designed for audiences seeking premier jazz and specialty experiences in exceptional settings.
