International Saxophonist "Lil' Maceo" Kareem Walkes, is quickly becoming one of contemporary jazz’s most thrilling and emotive performers and continues to stand out and push boundaries as a composer and performer. He’s becoming the go-to sax-man for artists like JT Taylor (Kool & The Gang), Cyril Neville (The Meters), Li'nard's Many Moods (Patti Labelle), and Blues Hall Of Famer Slam Allen (James Cotton). Kareem's playing, though inspired by Maceo Parker and Candy Dulfer, among others, displays his own fresh ideas and distinctive tone.
Each year, the Center for the Arts, in partnership with Micron Technology Foundation, the City of Manassas and the Harris Pavilion offers a series of free concerts. The popular concerts are scheduled on Saturday evenings throughout the summer. Bring your chairs, blankets, and picnics to enjoy these concerts with your friends and neighbors!
