We are excited to share this e-booklet with you in celebration of some events that were planned for fall 2020. Much effort went into preparing these concerts, plays and guest artists for our community. Rather than put that creativity on a shelf, here are small vignettes similar to what might have seen on-stage. Please turn the page to access the arts.

NOW MORE THAN EVER, ARTS HAVE IMPACT.


DEAR FRIENDS, We virtually welcome you to Zoellner Arts Center! While we were unable to welcome you to the center this fall, we would like to share some of what was planned. The virtual vignettes featured throughout this e-booklet offer a glimpse into those events. We hope you enjoy watching them from the safety of your home. As we re-imagine our presentations, we will keep you updated with the artists who will grace stages in new and creative ways. We are frequently adjusting our plans to address changing circumstances. Please be sure we have your email for updates. Thank you for your patience and your support of Zoellner Arts Center.
