Stage Notes COVID-19 Support Fundraiser

Published: Sunday, 08 November 2020

 

To our generous supporters:

 

2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. In the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global arts community has felt the loss in a profound way and the arts community in the North Country is no different. Stage Notes had no option but to cancel our July 2020 production of CATS. Stage Notes gathered on February 14, 2020, a month before schools closed, to showcase the talented Stage Notes class of 2020. It was a beautiful night filled with music, friendship, laughter, and a few tears. We are thankful for that evening. It turned out to be the last night we were all together. Stage Notes salutes the graduating class of 2020.

 

Like so many, we are still unable to operate on a “business as usual” model. That does not mean that Stage Notes has gone away! It’s only intermission. We have remained connected with our students. In the spring, during lockdown, our current students joined with alumni in creating a virtual performance of Stage Notes singing our “theme” song, You’ve Got A Friend, to help send a message of hope and unity to all of our Stage Notes friends. Over the summer, our students gathered in very small groups to learn a dance to the apropos song Brand New Day from The Wiz with our choreographer, David Simmons. Our Stage Notes president, Michele Glover, had Stage Notes masks made for all of our students and board members, spreading the message to our Stage Notes family and community that “wearing a face mask is an act of love”. As always, our focus and concern is for the safety and good health of our students, and our community.

 

Now, here we are, on the precipice of a strange year. We have high hopes of giving our students the theatrical experiences that they long for. Whether it is a virtual production, or a show next summer in a public venue (be still my heart), we plan to use this year as a time of growth. It’s time for Stage Notes to UNMASK OUR POTENTIAL!

 

It has never been more important to keep the arts alive. Stage Notes takes our role in arts education very seriously and we thank you for your past support.  We are humbly asking for your help in meeting our operational costs to stay afloat. For the first time in many years, we find ourselves looking at financial hardships we haven’t known since our earliest years. If we are able to remain in business, we will continue our goal to cultivate, promote, sustain, and support the arts in our community. Your contribution to Stage Notes will help us maintain the high standard of theater and philanthropy which you have come to expect from our organization.
