Great Lakes Center for the Arts Breaks Ground


On July 2, organizers held a groundbreaking event for the Great Lakes Center for the Arts — a 500-seat auditorium that they hope will become a northern Michigan destination. The venue will be located in Bay Harbor, between Emmet and Charlevoix counties, and will start running a full calendar of events in 2018. The lead consultant for the center is Michael Kaiser, president emeritus of the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Organizers expect the venue to host a variety of acts, including musical theater; chamber and symphonic ensembles; pop, jazz and country music; opera; dance performances; standup comedy; film showings; lectures; festivals and more.
