A list of past Fraze Pavilion performances (1991 to 2012)

Posted on 2012-02-23.

Since 1991, and through the 2011 season, hundreds of performances have taken place on the Fraze Pavilion stage. Looking back, we’ve compiled a list for you to see. We divided it into two lists — one for national tours and another one for local & regional artists. Some have performed here once, while others have made return engagements. Take a stroll down Memory Lane … and count how many you have attended.
