"The selection of songs and their performance brought many people back to good times in their youth and helped take their mind off the summer heat," said Amber Skjelset, the Manager of the Information Center.

In testament to this, the artists received several standing ovations throughout the performance and one guest, Sammy said, "I really enjoyed them and I really enjoyed the event. I'm going to tell my friends about this as they are looking for things to do and they like good performances. This is perfect!"

The Center regularly hosts free concerts for the community. The upcoming concerts are:

"Since the Information Center opened in 2015 we have hosted over 150 events, some of which are musical concerts," said Ms. Skjelset. "The Center is here to answer questions for those curious about Scientology and it serves as a gathering place for community meetings and events. We enjoy providing uplifting entertainment that brings people together from the community."
