Maybe it's how you escape after a long, difficult week. Perhaps an artist has informed a conversation or taught you something new about yourself. Maybe a concert has been so thoroughly entertaining you'll remember it the rest of your life. With your help, we can continue to make experiences like yours widely accessible across all of Anchorage.
"Be the light. Be the answer. Be the music in the dark." -Storm Large
Your support ensures that the performing arts can play an incredible role in our community. It brings hundreds of audience members to their feet for artists like Storm Large and Straight No Chaser. Your gift can share stories like Billy Elliott and Cinderella with the community, including the hundreds of local social services clients who attend the free community dress rehearsals.
Anchorage Concert Association goes beyond the walls of the performing arts center, seeking ideas, participation, and partnership from a broad representation of the community. Artists travel to schools, hold workshops and pop-up performances, and collaborate with local artists. Your gift can empower and uplift the community with access to inspiring and moving performances.
Community support brought Cantus to a local high school vocal ensemble. What was scheduled as a simple workshop turned into an emotion-filled moment as the students prepared to perform in memory of a longtime educator. The music of La Santa Cecilia inspired members of the local Hispanic community to create artwork and poetry that was featured alongside the band's vibrant music. Portland Cello Project was able to work with and perform for inmates at Hiland Mountain Correctional Facility. The artists called it some of the most rewarding work they have ever done. With your help, we can continue to provide these diverse experiences.
Partner with us and you'll help shape our community for the better by bringing Alaskans together through live performance. Please make a gift to the Anchorage Concert Association.
Donate to ACA and you'll take great pride the next time you settle into your seat, the lights dim, and the curtain rises, knowing that you made tonight's performance and so many others possible.
