Mid-Columbia Arts Fundraiser “All You Need is Love” – MC Ballet, MC Mastersingers, MC Musical Theatre & MC Symphony

I’m honored that Amy Hatfield, Mid-Columbia Musical Theatre board member would reach out to When in Tri-cities to help spread the word about the upcoming Mid-Columbia Arts Fundraiser! I am happy to announce that When in Tri-cities preferred businesses have raised $1,000 value in items for the auction! I’m hoping people will read and share this post and it will get the attention of more businesses who would like to support the: Mid-Columbia Ballet, Mid-Columbia Mastersingers, Mid-Columbia Musical Theatre and Mid-Columbia Symphony!

The arts have always been an important part of my life beginning when my parents enrolled me in ballet lessons as a three year old! Since then I have studied ballet, piano, language arts, and humanities and learned to appreciate all that goes into these amazing performances! There is nothing quite like a live performance! There is an energetic dynamic between the performers and audience that cannot be replicated on a flat screen.

The arts are something people in the community can share and appreciate together! Music and dancing are universal languages. When you reach for your wallet to purchase event tickets and attend a performance in your own community, you are helping to make possible the cultural enrichment of the performers and everyone in attendance! You also help these programs to continue and be available for up and coming artists and musicians. Please consider purchasing from the links below and sharing this post!
