“The ARTrium space at the Sutter Theater Center for the Arts really expands what we are able to offer the community in terms of unique musical experiences,” said David Read, YSAC Executive Director. “Gay is a top-notch performer and is a real audience pleaser for both jazz afficionados and those who may be jazz-curious,” he added.

Married to singer/songwriter, Tom Galvin, the couple has performed at the Burrow Theaters in concert as a duo as well as in the Sutter Theater Center for the Arts in various ensembles. Gay has performed in various ensembles throughout the community including concerts at Yuba College and in productions at The Acting Company. Gay and Tom also both played for the Applause performance series which helped raise funds for the completion of Phase 1 of the Sutter Theater.

The Sutter Theater Center for the Arts is the area’s newest performing arts venue. Come see what it is all about, help support live music in the community and enjoy this very gifted musician.
