Evidence of Program's Success

Students are immensely excited to participate in these programs, and the school district works with us at the curricular level to integrate artistic interaction. One school had such overwhelming response to musician Jon Batiste's introduction to the elements of jazz that they created a jazz and blues curriculum for their next semester.

"To me, this is what education is about - learning by observation, experience, and sheer joy. Sometimes that comes in the form of figuring out a difficult math problem or analyzing an interesting primary source while other times it comes from spending time together and learning from others outside of our community. Thank you for sharing your passion for music and inspiring us to continue to pursue the things that we love!"
-Liz Melahn, High School History and English Teacher

General Public

Description

Provided funding for capital improvements to the facility, including the major campaign resulting in the remodel and renovation of the Lincoln Center. We are now launching a campaign to replace the seats in the main Performance Hall in time for the Lincoln Center's 40th anniversary season 2018-2019.

Evidence of Program's Success

A simple examination of the facilities before and after the last capital campaign shows a vast difference. Patron and client surveys report greatly improved user experiences, and the center is able to present more diverse and higher quality art.
