As we anticipate our upcoming season, we know that it's important to consider all the factors that will allow us to safely and sustainably mobilize our mission, onstage and throughout our community and educational programs. Your feedback—alongside feedback from artists, managers and agents, performance venues and presenting partners, public health professionals and scientists, and our local and federal government—will help inform our planning. I'd like to share with you some of my thoughts—and hope you'll do the same. Please help us plan ahead by completing our patron survey and attending a May 12 online town hall.

Take care,
Jenny Bilfield

Flashback to April 16 when we enjoyed live jazz with Veronica Swift followed by a conversation with Washington Performing Arts' Artist-in-Residence and host of WAMU's "The Big Broadcast" Murray Horwitz!
