WHAT'S YOUR EXPERIENCE?

It's Saturday evening and downtown Anchorage is bustling with activity.

You and a loved one have had tonight marked on your calendar for weeks. You made dinner reservations in advance because you know that on show nights it's next to impossible to find a table. Just after 7 pm, you and throngs of others are headed into the theatre. Along the way to your seat you see friends, neighbors, or acquaintances you've made at other performances. By 7:30 you are in your seats, the curtain rises and the show begins. Alongside hundreds of other Alaskans, you experience the magic of live performance.

Have you been there?

Was it a Broadway production like My Fair Lady or Sisters Act? Perhaps it was a legend like Lyle Lovett or Penn & Teller. Maybe you've enjoyed groups like Postmodern Jukebox and 2Cellos, thought provoking work by Letters Aloud and Ira Glass, or fresh, new acts like Intergalactic Nemesis and Break of Reality.

ACA has been expanding its programs beyond the wall of the performing arts center. Artists now go out into the community, traveling to schools, holding workshops, pop-up performances, house concerts, and more.

Think of a Tuesday morning at an Anchorage middle school.

Students and teachers have gathered for something out of the ordinary: four visiting performers who have come to tell their story and share their talent. It's a Thursday night and between 60 and 80 twenty and thirty-somethings have come together in an unfamiliar place to see an unfamiliar artist. The experience challenges their notions about live performance. Imagine being with community members and supporters of ACA in a local residence to see an intimate performance by an international vocalist and hear her talk about her music.

Because of you ACA can provide these diverse experiences. Imagine these occasions multiplied across dozens of performances and tens of thousands of community members. It's easy to see the impact of your support on the quality of life here in Anchorage. By making a gift to ACA you inspire and entertain our community with performances and experiences.

Please make a gift to the Anchorage Concert Association. It is our hope that as the audience settles into their seats, the lights dim, and the curtain rises, you can take great pride in knowing that tonight's performance is only possible because of you.
