Arts Center Temporary Closure Announcement due to COVID-19
Hello Friends of Catamount Arts,
Here at Catamount, our brick-and-mortar Arts Center is still closed to the public, but we’ve been thrilled to see many of you at our off-site summer programming. Hopefully you’ve been able to attend some Drive-In to Stay Safe movies and live concerts at NVU Johnson and Lyndon, and are checking our website and socials to find out how you can participate in exciting events like the Community Quilting Project and the Hey NEK! What’s Your Art? Virtual Art and Creativity Showcase for Everyone.
We still have a month left of the weekend drive-in series, so get your tickets to see live music from Dave Keller, The Zach Nugent Band, Dan Houghton, Root Shock and Chad Hollister, not to mention classic family films like E.T.-The Extraterrestrial, The Great Outdoors and Harry & the Hendersons.
The Catamount Team is hard at work behind the scenes preparing for an unusual fall and winter season. Due to safety concerns for audiences and performers, touring shows such as the KCP Presents Series have been pushed back into 2021. There will be no live shows in 2020, but we are working with agents and performers to reschedule KCP shows for next year.
The EPIC Music Program has continued throughout the summer with intensive string instruction with our EPIC students and will move forward in the fall and winter months; we’re making the necessary adaptations to meet the challenges of the indoor season. Speaking of which, we’re happy to announce that First Night 2021 will be weather-proof, as we bring you eight hours of family-friendly entertainment virtually. We’re playing it safe this year and streaming all First Night content online. Preparations are already underway, so please stay tuned for more information about how to celebrate the New Year with us and your loved ones in the comfort of your home safely and warmly!
In the meantime, Catamount staffers are hard at work assessing opportunities for innovation at the Arts Center. We’re anticipating modifications to the building, and we’re scouting alternative spaces so we can ensure safe physical occupancy for future programming. We’re eager to welcome you back!
Until then, stay strong, stay healthy, and on behalf of Catamount’s Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, and supporters, thank you for keeping yourselves and each other safe. We look forward to seeing you soon.
All the best,
Jody Fried, Executive Director
