Rockport — Windhover Performing Arts Center 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. The Center is reaching out now for help with contributions to meet their 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. 

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.

For 2022 Windover welcomes:

—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 will be 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 instruments will be protected. All dance performances will take place since the stage will be protected. 

The Quarry Dance X will be released online on Vimeo during a specific weekend in January, to be announced soon. There will be a premiere on Zoom like 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. 

Windhover asks for their dreams to come true by donating any amount that is comfortable for you. Every contribution helps to meet the goal. Windhover is a 501© 3 non-profit organization, so every contribution is tax-deductible. Contribute in order to help sustain high quality arts on Cape Ann which are essential to uplifting spirits and keeping the creativity of artists alive.
