Del Mar Foundation kicks off First Thursdays with High Society Jazz Band

The High Society Jazz Band put a fresh twist on the lively sounds of traditional jazz to open the First Thursdays’ season at the Powerhouse on Sept. 3. From Irving Berlin to Louie Prima to Paul McCartney, this six-member group has entertained around San Diego and beyond for nearly 30 years.

The Cultural Arts Committee of the Del Mar Foundation is dedicated to bringing a wide variety of concerts, lectures, and other performances to the community of Del Mar. Its flagship program, the First Thursdays’ subscription series, offers world-class performances every first Thursday between September and June. Non-subscription performances are offered throughout the year with tickets available to the public.

Tickets are also available for Peter Sprague and Friends playing “Salt Water Jazz” on Friday, Sept. 18 at the Del Mar Powerhouse. General admission is $20. For information and to order tickets, visit
