Arts Central, as the Regional Arts and Culture Council for Central Oregon, provides arts services to the communities, artists and arts organizations in Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook counties.  Arts Central receives support from the Oregon Arts Commission for these services.  AC's purpose is to inspire creativity through arts education and to advocate for integration of the arts in all aspects of community life in Central Oregon.  This is accomplished through four distinct initiatives: advocacy, arts education, public art, and cultural trust.

Concerned parents, school administrators and community leaders came together to develop the Sisters Starry Nights Benefit Concert Series.


Organized and staffed entirely by volunteers, the event debuted in 1997 and is the major source of funding for the Sisters Schools Foundation.


The event has featured performances graciously donated by such renowned artists as Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Lyle Lovett, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Keb' Mo', John Hiatt, Lee Ann Womack and Karla Bonoff, among others.


This is a retrospective of the Starry Nights concert series.
