Meany Center Virtual Gala
Saturday, May 1, 2021

6:00–7:30 P.M.

We’re going virtual again this year! Join us for this special online Gala in support of Meany Center. 

When All the World’s a Stage, home is where the art is!

Enjoy 90 minutes of performances by some of our favorite artists from across all our series as they join us live from their homes, studios—and in one case, our beloved Meany stage:

  • Members of Noche Flamenca bring the duende from Cadiz, Spain and New York City
  • Pianist Jon (Jackie) Kimura Parker performs from his home on Orcas Island
  • Cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han join us from New York City
  • Meklit sings to us from San Francisco
  • Ahamefule Oluo brings it all back home as he performs live from the Meany Stage!

You’ll also have the opportunity to join these artists in a virtual “greenroom” for lively conversation in the company of other Meany friends and supporters.

And yes, Meany Center Executive and Artistic Director Michelle Witt will preview the 2021–22 Season, which we expect to present live in our theater!

All year long we’ve been offering digital performances free of charge to our community—but not free of cost to us! We still have bills to pay, not the least of which are artist fees! With no ticket sales to offset expenses, now more than ever, we need your help.

To get this fundraiser off to a good start, a couple of generous donors are offering a dollar-for-dollar match up to $25,000! 

Please take advantage of this opportunity and double your impact by making a donation in support of Meany Center’s educational and artistic programming.

Since you can’t come to Meany, Meany will come to you!
