Welcome to the Garde Arts, the winner of the 2022 Outstanding Historic Theatre in America, from the League of Historic American Theatres. Just four years from its century mark, the community-owned Garde Arts Center, has survived a World War, the great stock market crash, hurricanes, epidemics, suburban migration, and technological innovation. Since the nonprofit took ownership of the theater in 1985, the Garde has grown to encompass the beautifully restored 1440-seat Garde Theater movie palace, the 80-seat Oasis Room, an entire “arts block” and even an independent bookstore. It has become a true home for the performing arts for Southeastern Connecticut. In the months ahead, as we continue to emerge from the pandemic, we will reconnect and re-energize our community in our nationally acclaimed hall through live performances, film, music, dance, theater, and community programs. However, the effects of a pandemic have raised serious operational and facility challenges. Most significantly, the cramped backstage and limited truck loading capacity have made the Garde stage unfriendly for many visiting performers and will decrease the number of events that would otherwise want to come to our theater. In addition, the #1 historic theater in America needs to upgrade its antiquated sound systems and stage technology, as well as provide more event spaces. In the months ahead, the community will be asked to support a $5.5 million fund drive for the first phase of a new Campaign for the Next Century that will improve safety, accessibility, and frequency of use for the Garde stage, provide additional community space and address the theater’s increased operational costs as we approach the Centennial of the Garde in 2026. We hope your presence and support this year will help prepare the Garde for a new century of service. If you can, please donate online or call Jeanne Sigel at 860-961-4106. Thank you again for joining us at your home for the performing arts.

A graduate from BU with a BA in Psychology, he worked as a community organizer in Jamaica Plain (MA) and San Francisco, before becoming the General Manager of the One Act Theatre Company of San Francisco. His musical scores and direction at the One Act Theatre and for the Berkeley Shakespeare Festival won awards from the Bay Area Drama Critic’s Circle and the Hollywood Dramalogue Magazine. Before moving to New London, Mr. Sigel served as Director of Public Relations for the School of Creative Arts at San Francisco State University, and Managing Director of the Berkshire Theatre Festival in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Mr. Sigel has produced the Governor’s CT Arts Awards, and was awarded an arts administration fellowship by the Connecticut Commission on Culture. He is a board member of the CT Arts Alliance, a founding board member of the Southeastern CT Cultural Coalition, and has also served on various regional and New London civic organizations. His honors include the New London Landmarks Preservation Award, the OIC Community Champion Award, and with Jeanne Sigel, the Garde’s Marketing and Development Director, the New London Kiwanis Lifetime of Community Service Award, and the William Crawford Distinguished Service Award by the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut.

GARDE ARTS CENTER 2022/23 SEASON

Old Crow Medicine Show started busking on street

corners in 1998 in New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He invited the band to play at his festival, MerleFest, helping to launch their career. Shortly thereafter the band was hired to entertain crowds between shows at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN. It’s been over twenty years since these humble beginnings. The band has gone on to receive the honor of being inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry, and has won two Grammy Awards: “Best Folk Album” for Remedy (2014) and “Best Long Form Music Video” for Big Easy Express (2013). Additionally, their classic single, “Wagon Wheel”, received the RIAA’s Double-Platinum certification in 2019 for selling over 2,000,000 copies while the band’s debut album O.C.M.S. has been certified Gold (500,000 copies). Old Crow Medicine Show now has six studio albums to their name, three of which were released by Nettwerk Records – O.C.M.S. (2004) and Big Iron World (2006) produced by David Rawlings, and Tennessee Pusher (2008) produced by Don Was. Following that, ATO Records released the Ted Hutt produced, Carry Me Back (2012), on which the band continued to craft classic American roots music and Remedy (2014), also produced by Ted Hutt. Old Crow Medicine Show was signed to Columbia in 2017 and immediately delivered a full-length tribute to Boy Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde, entitled 50 Years Of Blonde On Blonde (2017). During the same year, Nettwerk also released a Best Of Old Crow Medicine Show compilation. A year later, the band released the Dave Cobb-produced Volunteer (2018) via Columbia. The band’s latest release Live At The Ryman (2019) was released on October 4th on Columbia Records via The Orchard.
