JAG’s newest performance series, Inside Track, continues to offer audiences the best in contemporary music, small ensembles and up-and-coming performers at the historic Lincoln Theatre. Starting with the 2015-2016 season, the series will expand to include performances at Columbus’ newest live music venue, Notes, located in the Brewery District. We believe the best way to experience music is live, where you can feel the beat in your body and witness the heart and soul that goes into its creation. As we prepare for the next Inside Track series, we look forward to giving music lovers from all walks of life the chance to stretch their ears and stretch themselves. With performers from every corner of the musical landscape, our next season will attract diverse audiences and entertain listeners of all ages. It’s music like you’ve never heard it before.
