The performance center is one to not pass up. Acoustics are phenomenal. The backdrop is all glass that looks out on the ocean. Love this place

Shalin Liu Performance Center is a small concert venue. The smallness gives one a great view of the stage and it has great sound. The side balcony seats do not have very good views. Behind the stage there is a great view of the ocean,...More
