Your love for the arts fuels us

You rock. Thank you for believing in us and what we do

Hands creating heart shapes at a concert

A message from our Executive Director:

Hello arts supporter,

Each week when we present a show at the PAC, I love walking through the lobby or the aisles of the theatre and saying to people like you, “Thank you for coming to the show tonight.” As I sit in my home office and share these thoughts with you, my gratitude for you is even stronger.

Like most of you, I have been cooped up in my house for about seven weeks. While I haven’t completely reorganized my life or done all those projects I had planned on, I have watched the Tiger King on Netflix, eaten lots of home-baked goods, and had daily conversations with friends and family via Zoom.

Since I can’t see you personally and thank you for your support, please know that in my heart, I feel such a sense of gratitude for you and your support of Anchorage Concert Association and the arts in our community.

Executive Director Jason Hodges says hello from his home office.

THANK YOU for being an arts supporter and making art part of your life.
THANK YOU for buying tickets and attending events.
THANK YOU for the donations you make to us.
THANK YOU for the time you volunteer with us.
THANK YOU for believing in Anchorage Concert Association and taking a chance with us week after week, season after season. Your love of the arts is the fuel that gets us out of bed in the morning, even now when we get out of bed and walk across the hall to our home offices.

The staff of Anchorage Concert Association is staying healthy and working hard for you. Even in our homes, our staff are diligently trying to figure out when the curtain will rise on our next performance. We’ve been receiving community support in the way of individual donations, ticket holders donating their tickets back to us, and so many words of appreciation for the work we do.

Truly, thank you for all your contributions, kind wishes and good thoughts. We can’t do what we do without you. A group on stage without an audience is really just a rehearsal. When the time comes and we can put on a show again, we will need you safely in your seat to make that magical and profound connection between the artist and the audience.

Today, at home, I am filled with gratitude and hope for our future. I wish more than anything I could be in the lobby to greet you in person and share that with you. For now this email will have to do until we can gather again.

I hope it won’t be too long.

Jason Hodges
