Happy Holidays gif
Megan's Message

On behalf of the entire staff at the Carpenter Center, I’d like to wish you a safe and healthy holiday season and a happy New Year. We look forward to the day when we can gather in person once more to experience the hope and joy the performing arts provide.

Until then, please enjoy two of our recent online performances: David Benoit's Tribute to A Charlie Brown Christmas and Nochebuena—Christmas Eve in Mexico with Ballet Folklórico de Los Ángeles and Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuéllar! Both performances are free to view over the holidays!

Best wishes to you and your family and to a brighter 2021, and thank you all for your ongoing and past support.

With my deepest appreciation,
