I have visited on multiple occasions and found this place to be very scenic and interesting. I enjoyed the water features that run outside of the main building.

Since it is a small and personal auditorium the seating is great . My wife uses a wheel chair for transportation and this place is very accessible. The sound was amazing ,both from the entertainment side and the sound system side.

I have visited this venue for Straight No Chaser twice now! This venue is great, and can accommodate additional receptions before or after your show.

We've been very regular patrons of the Mesa Arts Center for as long as it's been there. Shows, exhibits, celebrations...everything about the MAC is absolutely world class!

The Mesa Art Center is always busy, offering amazing shows, plays, exhibits, and classes that often fill up quickly. Celebration of diversity, recognition of local talent, and ability to lure big names to the Center all make this a true gem.

Unusual and fantastic. Jazz and Native American, and top-notich musicians, great music in a small venue (Piper). Thoroughly enjoyable, foot-tapping and spirit too. Mr. Nakai has moved on from his already great Native American flute to jazz improv, and even a bit of dancing. Good on you, sir! I have been a follower of yours for more than 30 years.... More

We went in December to a Christmas concert with the EVMCO. Not only were the choirs just pure perfection, but the accoustics made the experience even that much more enjoyable. It was one of the best concerts we have ever attended. We were even in the "cheap seats".
