Many arts and culture organizations are suffering catastrophically from the COVID-19 crisis. Some are totally shut down, receiving little revenue. Front-line, human service organizations are receiving much-deserved support and attention during our current, unprecedented public health and economic challenges. As they should.
But let's take a beat. Literally. The Community Foundation is dedicating a few evenings this summer to pivot our focus to celebrate our community's love of all things arts-related. While we can't gather in person for our sixth-annual Community Concerts in the Rochester's Secret Garden, we invite you to create your own secret garden at home, tune in to KSUT or KDUR to enjoy music from some of our favorite local bands, and donate to support 10 important community arts organizations.
Sponsored by Four Corners Community Bank, Tito's Handmade Vodka, Rochester Hotel, and the Community Foundation, we present: Community Concerts Re-imaged, supporting:
Donations of $500 or more will receive an incentive prize, such as priority seating at a future event or a free house concert.
Follow the selected nonprofits on Facebook to watch some fun "listening" parties in our own Secret Gardens, while we look forward to the day when we can gather in person at the Rochester Hotel again! ~Cheers!
