A SPECIAL ISSUE OF APPLAUSE We appreciate your support of the Center for the Performing Arts and your patience as we work to provide alternative programming during the pandemic and schedule the 2020-2021 Center Presents Season sponsored by Allied Solutions. As noted in our recent email to subscribers, because of continuing public health concerns and the resulting slowdown in the broader concert industry, the Center is delaying the start of the Center Presents performance season until early 2021. An initial schedule and on-sale dates will be announced in January. Several concerts rescheduled for this fall will be moved to future dates, and ticketholders will be contacted to explore their options. The new season will not be organized into traditional subscription packages, and venue capacity will be substantially reduced to allow physical distancing. Still, subscribers from the 2019-2020 season will maintain their subscriber status and benefits this season, including ticket discounts, presale access and priority seating. Though some seats might not be available for every performance, we will do our best to honor your preferences. Meanwhile, we will continue to fulfill our mission with a substantial schedule of small-scale events, Resident Company performances, educational programming and online offerings. We’re excited to connect with wider and more diverse audiences through new livestreaming initiatives and digital adaptations of popular programs. The Center’s education and enrichment programs for all ages – such as Faegre Drinker Peanut Butter & Jam family concerts, KAR Front Seat artist Q&As, Palladium Bookies book club and the Luminaries speaker series – will continue, whether onsite, online or in some combination of the two. Through Zoom teleconferencing, we are expanding the Classics in Context discussion series and launching a new JazzTalk series. Also premiering this fall is a livestreamed performance series, Live at the Center, featuring top


local and regional artists. The Center will continue to share news as well as online arts and entertainment opportunities through the twice-weekly Interlude e-newsletter. Meanwhile, more than 40 onsite events are scheduled in the Center’s venues from August through December, including performances by the resident Carmel Symphony Orchestra, Civic Theatre, Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre and Indiana Wind Symphony. For these events, the Center has developed an extensive set of protocols to enhance health and safety in our venues, including requirements for face coverings and physical distancing. More details on our COVID-19 policies are available on our website, TheCenterPresents.org. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Patron Services staff at Tickets@TheCenterPresents.org or by phone at (317) 843-3800 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. We hope you enjoy our programming this fall, and we look forward to sharing more information about the Center Presents season in January. Thank you again for your support.

PALLADIUM PLAYERS TABLE READING: THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 AT 7PM ET | THE STUDIO THEATER & ONLINE Join us for a casual reading and discussion of the themes in Act III of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. For our reading, we are looking for "actors" (amateurs welcome!) to read one of eight characters. (Depending on who registers, we may need to read "gender-blind.�) What is a table reading? A table reading is an organized reading of a script in which the speaking parts, stage directions and scene headings are read out loud. In this case, participants can enjoy a sense of community while engaging with Oscar Wilde's wonderful language. Plays are written to be performed aloud and heard, not just read silently. Learn more about the reading here.

CLASSICS IN CONTEXT: "CLASSICAL" VS. CLASSICAL MUSIC TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 AT 7PM ET | ONLINE Wikipedia defines classical music as “art music produced or rooted in the traditions of Western culture, including both liturgical and secular music.” Within that larger scope is the Classical period of music, which lasted roughly from 1730 until 1815 and included the works of such composers as Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. This Classics in Context presentation will explore both definitions and try to clear up any confusion the terms might create for listeners. It’s classical versus “Classical.” The program will conclude with an opportunity to ask questions of Dr. Conrad. Learn more about Dr. Conrad here.

Fundamentally, blind embossing is the method of creating raised logos or characters without the use of ink for a dramatic statement. To us, print is the act of transforming your thoughts, feelings, and hard work into something tangible. Similarly, organizations like The Center for the Performing Arts do more than invite world class performers to Indiana, they create educational journeys to a broadened mindset and an open heart. And we’re proud to support them.

PALLADIUM BOOKIES: THE RIDE OF A LIFETIME: LESSONS LEARNED FROM 15 YEARS AS CEO OF THE WALT DISNEY CO. BY ROBERT IGER

MONDAY, OCTOBER 12 AT 7PM ET | THE PALLADIUM & ONLINE The Palladium Bookies, the Center’s book club for grownups, conducted its first physically distanced, hybrid gathering Monday, with participants appropriately spaced throughout the Palladium’s South Lobby and others joining in via Zoom videoconferencing to talk over The Piano Shop on the Left Bank by Thad Carhart. Up next for discussion is The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company by Robert Iger. It was a No. 1 NYT best-seller and an NPR Best Books of the Year honoree, and based on the publisher’s blurb, this guy was a pretty big deal: “The executive chairman of Disney, Time’s 2019 businessperson of the year, shares the ideas and values he embraced during his 15 years as CEO while reinventing one of the world’s most beloved companies and inspiring the people who bring the magic to life.” The discussion begins at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 12, so find a copy and email Outreach@TheCenterPresents.org to register for online or in-person participation.

ABOUT THE CENTER The mission of the Center for the Performing Arts is to engage and inspire the Central Indiana community through enriching arts experiences. The Center for the Performing Arts is a nonprofit arts and education organization responsible for the operation and programming of a three-venue campus at Carmel’s City Center. Together, the Palladium, the Tarkington and the Studio Theater create a welcoming place for the community to engage with all forms of the performing arts. The campus also provides a home for the affiliated Great American Songbook Foundation and hosts six Resident Companies, along with other organizations that utilize the facilities for their events. Since opening in 2011, the Center’s venues have hosted over 2,500 performances for 960,000 patrons representing all 92 counties in Indiana, all 50 states and 25 nations. The campus also draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year for other public events. Each year the Center provides access to the arts for thousands of people of all ages – building community, enriching lives and inspiring minds young and old. Education and outreach initiatives include performing arts classes for children and adults and special programs for upcoming generations, such as the interactive Faegre Drinker Peanut Butter & Jam concert series for preschoolers, the Palladium PALS reading club, educational videoconferences for students around the state, and the Student Discount Ticket program, through which students can attend select performances for just $15.

LEGACY SOCIETY The Legacy Society recognizes and thanks dedicated individuals who are leaving a future legacy to the Center for the Performing Arts. Through their generosity, these individuals have demonstrated their commitment to the future of the Center and the health of the arts community for Central Indiana.

BRIDGE CAMPAIGN We hold steadfast that the arts are key to bringing joy, beauty, hope, laughter, education, entertainment and economic development in good times and in more trying times alike. In the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, the Center for the Performing Arts faces unique obstacles, and among those are financial concerns. And yet, our mission continues – perhaps more important than ever, in fact – but through new forms of delivery, media and outreach to the community.

Established to ensure the Center for the Performing Arts continues its mission to Central Indiana in spite of the Covid-19 crisis, these donors gave generously to the Bridge Campaign. And for that, a grateful community says thank you.
