This month brings the opening of the region’s newest arts venue, The Center for the Performing Arts. The inaugural concert on January 30 features the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and the Miró Quarter with Lynn Harrell. This follows months of sound checks and an opening gala that will present Michael Feinstein, Chris Botti, Neil Sedaka, Cheyenne Jackson and Dionne Warwick.
In our estimation, The Center for the Performing Arts represents a rare opportunity for audience development. By bringing three new venues on-line, the Center will substantially increase the number of people in central Indiana who are attending live performances. We believe that the addition of The Center can only enhance central Indiana’s reputation as a cultural destination.
Printing Partners has signed a three-year agreement to be the official printer of The Center for the Performing Arts. We have a long-term involvement with the arts in central Indiana and this is a logical extension of that commitment. Our partnership complements existing sponsorships with other arts organizations such as the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Civic Theatre and the Indiana Repertory Theatre.
As part of The Palladium’s debut season, Printing Partners will sponsor From the Top, National Public Radio’s award-winning showcase for America’s best young musicians. Each program provides a compelling and entertaining window into the world of a diverse group of young people who pursue life with passion, determination, and joy.
The Center for the Performing Arts is pleased to welcome From the Top with host Christopher O’Riley for a live taping on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at 7:00pm.
We congratulate The Center for its vision and for expanding central Indiana’s cultural landscape.
