Big News for Windhover 2022

Dear Windhover Friends:

Now that the light is returning and we are moving into 2022, I want to share some exciting news about Windhover Performing Arts Center with you. Windhover has received a matching grant for half of the money towards the purchase of a permanent frame tent covering for the outdoor stage and garden. The amount received is $20,000. This means that we are reaching out now for help with contributions to meet our goal of raising the remaining $20,000. With a permanent tent covering in place, it means that all performances can take place at Windhover rain or shine! This is a game changer for Windhover! With this in place, everyone can be assured that all high quality dance, theater and music events which we are known for will take place.

Following the success of last summer when over 10,000 people attended numerous events, this coming summer of 2022 promises a wide variety of innovative performances in all of the performing arts fields. We welcome:

The Gloucester Stage Company back for the month of July;

Michael Trusnovec and his dance colleagues back to perform and teach in September;

Lanes Coven Theater Company performing Macbeth in August;

–Saving Grace Dance Ensemble Repertoire

— North Atlantic Dance Theatre Company

–Cornfield Dance Company

plus many other companies whose work will be enhanced because of this tent covering. Music performances will be able to take place rain or shine, as the delicate instruments will protected. All dance performances will take place since the stage will be protected.  

More news: The Quarry Dance X will be released online on Vimeo during a specific weekend in January, to be announced soon. We will have a premiere on Zoom as we did last year with Quarry Dance lX, with the complete cast and producer answering questions. The composer is putting the finishing touches on the music which he is creating for this dance video. We will send out an email blast when we have the dates, and it will be free for all to watch.
