As the pandemic fades, we will be working with our arts community to create more opportunities to bring us all together.  To support these efforts, we see a need to build a cadre of volunteers that will find joy in working together to make these events happen.  Join the volunteer team to not only help spread the workload but pull us all together as an Arts and Culture family!

Gonzo Live at The Del
Posted by: Tillie Vuksich 1 year, 3 months ago

Live music is BACK in Coronado!  Gonzo performed live Saturday 3/27/21 at The Hotel Del Babcock & Story Bar. The sunset framed him like a spotlight as he sang the classics for all the guests who were singing and swaying in the breeze. Social distancing was practiced and masks were worn (our new normal post 2020), but it didn't take away from the magic felt by all who spent their night listening to Gonzo serenade the setting sun from the patio overlooking the pacific ocean.
