Sertoma Amphitheatre is one of Cary’s best kept secrets, nestled away inside Bond Park. This intimate venue is a perfect setting for outdoor concerts. Come early for a seat, or pack your own portable chair.

Violet Bell’s original Americana is woven from threads of folk, soul, bluegrass, psychedelic and classical music. On stage and in the studio, the energy between Lizzy Ross and Omar Ruiz-Lopez is fiery, intimate and intuitive. Based out of Durham, the pair have played shows from Montreal to Miami since forming in 2016, resulting in a strong onstage chemistry that’s evident in person and in videos of these live performances. Violet Bell was born in 2016, when singer-songwriter Ross recruited Ruiz-Lopez as a multi-instrumentalist for a live album recording show… two weeks before the show. Ruiz-Lopez slayed the performance and brought out a new dimension of beauty in the music. Violet Bell released their debut EP Dream the Wheel in 2017 and have been playing ever since.
