As we move through these uncertain times, we want our patrons and supporters to know that The Grand will continue to serve as a source for inspiration for the community. Although we are physically distanced from each other, we are coming together in new and different ways to provide hope, creativity, and inspiration. Check out some of the virtual and socially-distanced programs we have implemented to make sure audiences have access to the arts during this "intermission"!
Quaran-Tunes is a virtual concert series to help support emerging artists while supporting the COVID-19 Community Response Fund. Featured artists include: Nick Anderson, Ilan Blanck, Brady Luke, Sammy & Molly Miller, Halie Loren, David McMillin of Fort Frances, Kirstie Kraus, Lost Lakes, and The OK Factor.
Social Distance Spotlight is a video series dedicated to providing online performance opportunities for talented students who have had their spring performances cancelled.
Broadway Watch Parties provide an opportunity for theater lovers to enjoy the magic of "live" performance together, from the comfort of their own homes. So far, we have "gathered" together virtually to watch the following productions: Shrek the Musical, Newsies: The Broadway Musical, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Phantom of the Opera, Sondheim's 90th Birthday Celebration, Into the Woods, The Disney Family Singalong: Volume II, Cats: The Musical, Hairspray Live!, and Hamilton.
Through the "Quarantined With Katy" Series on our blog, Director of Education & Community Engagement Katy Lang helps keep our community connected to what’s happening in the world of the performing arts, from streaming theater options to online arts education resources.
