Executive Director's Letter

Thanks to your generous support, GPAC’s 24th season will continue to awe patrons with the breadth, depth, and quality of the artists we present, performance after performance! From the grand season opening with vocal virtuoso Bobby McFerrin, we’ll journey through an exciting and amazingly diverse array of music and dance, including jazz and American music, as well as artists from India and South Africa.

At the same time, we’ll embark on our most ambitious and visionary project to date—the construction of The Grove. Under the direction of our seasoned and highly professional team, GPAC will simultaneously build this new outdoor performance space, assume the direction of the city’s new Public Arts Commission, and plan for our 25th Anniversary season, which coincides with the Fall 2019 grand opening of The Grove. All the while, we will once again be providing our patrons with unparalleled artistic excellence in an intimate, authentic setting.

It’s a tall order, but, with a stronger-than-ever leadership team in place, we are positioned and ready for change. Inspired by the knowledge that The Grove will place GPAC among the ranks of the most innovative performing arts centers in the nation, attracting new audiences by providing a new type of experience, we welcome YOU to join us on this journey. Whether as a patron, a season subscriber, a donor or a volunteer, we welcome your enthusiastic support!
