In this digital age, we express that we like something by clicking a button. We let friends know we are thinking of them by texting an emoji. But human emotion is so much more complex; no emoji can describe the feeling of holding a newborn baby or hearing the news of a favorite author passing. Instead, we find these expressions in art.

This season, we introduce the power of music through diverse programming with amazing guest artists. Our new ArtsMatterNOW initiative moves into full swing with NOWmaste, ArtsMatter Dialogues, Family Concerts, and more. And because we believe in the necessity of the arts in our lives, we are making it easier than ever to attend through NOWpass.

But we can't do this without your support. Please consider joining the 2019-20 season’s Friends of NOW. Thank you for believing in the power of the arts in our lives!
