Thank you to all of you who have reached out to us over the past month. Whether you’ve tuned in to an online concert with one of our Neighborhood Arts artists, made a donation of your tickets (over 1,100 households and growing), engaged with us on social media, or reached out to staff personally, your support has made an extraordinary difference. We are so glad to connect with you all in these virtual ways, and we look forward to gathering again in the community when the time is right.

Daniil Trifonov’s performance is sponsored by Melinda & James Rabb and is also made possible in part by Celebrity Series’ LIVE PERFORMANCE! Arts for All Endowment and Innovation Funds, with generous leadership support from Lawrence T.P. Stifler & Mary McFadden and Dorothy & Stephen Weber. Additional support is provided by Stephen C. Perry & Oliver Radford, Stephen C. Harrison & Tomas Kirchhausen, Debra & Michael Raizman, and in memory of Blanche & George Jones. Thank you as well to our Dance Series sponsors for 2019-20, including Stephanie L. Brown Foundation, Cynthia & John S.

Sheku and Isata Kanneh-Mason’s performance was sponsored by an anonymous donor and was presented as an Aaron Richmond Recital.
