The Florence Regional Arts Alliance is celebrating 35 years of helping the Arts in Florence County with  A Valentine to Remember,  a fundraising Jazz Concert at the PAC. This show features the Florence Area Big Band and special guest, Florence native and drummer with Doc Severinsen’s Big Band, Stockton Helbing.

Reserved VIP tickets are $45 and include a reception at 6:30pm at the Waters Building in downtown Florence. Reserved tickets for the concert only are $25, and student tickets at $10.

Stockton was first hired to tour the world by his musical hero Maynard Ferguson. During that nearly four year time period Stockton was a featured soloist, the youngest person to ever be Maynard’s music director, the only drummer to ever be Maynard’s music director, and producer of Maynard’s last studio recording, The One and Only Maynard Ferguson (2007).

Stockton has also performed and recorded with a wide range of artists including Arturo Sandoval, the Maniacal 4, Erika Badu, David Braid, Steve Wiest, Jennifer Holiday, The Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Denis DiBlasio, The Cincinnati Pops, Chip McNeill, Darden Purcell, Clay Jenkins, Phil Woods, Wayne Bergeron, Randy Brecker, The Imperial Brass, Mary Wilson, Paul Tynan, Ernie Watts and many more.

Stockton will perform with the Florence Area Big Band favorites from the libraries of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich along with many popular standards.

The funds raised from this concert will go towards our operating expenses allowing us to provide arts grant support, scholarships, arts marketing and arts programming to Florence County.
