A Message from
Gary Schiro, Executive Director
Dear Friend -
Because you care about our work in the community, I know you will understand the challenges we face. Even as we are finalizing construction drawings to restore our upstairs performance hall, we still must keep our vibrant schedule of programs growing. But several years of a challenging economy have reduced grant amounts and we find ourselves facing a shortfall in our budget. Won't you consider a gift to help us fill the gap? Each year we rely on gifts to our annual appeal to do just that.
During this season we reflect on all that 2012 offered, much of which would not have been possible without the invaluable support of friends like you--world-class artists like the Imani Winds and Jenny Lin, workshops for all ages from painting to Hip-Hop, exhibitions by artists from around the globe--and of the 1100 programs and events we presented, more than 70% were free so all could have access!
Every year at the Hudson Opera House, people tell us our cultural and educational programs have a profound impact on their lives and on our communities. A gift in any amount will help to ensure that services to our community and to our thousands of annual visitors will continue to thrive. Please, be generous and send your gift today by clicking donate now or mailing it to the address below.
And I hope to see you at the Opera House sometime soon.
PS - Our dreams for a reopened 2nd floor performance hall with a full schedule of even bigger and better shows are close to being realized, but it is going to take a big stretch to get there. We are working diligently to do just that and your gift to the annual appeal will move us closer to our goal.
