Season’s Greetings GP Friends,

Thanksgiving is a day set aside for giving thanks and reflecting on what we value and hold close. I do hope that you were able to safely gather and this finds you and yours in good health.

As we begin this starkly different holiday season, we at Grand Performances (GP) are extremely grateful to those of you who have provided financial support in this most challenging year. Thanks to you, we were able to present our 2020 programming online which included 23 intimate performances by artists from their homes or local studios, and six cinematic Feature Presentations. Thanks to the GP Creative Services team for making this possible. This online programming gave artists an opportunity to reach new audiences. And I hope we were able to bring you some joy and respite in these challenging times.

As we move into this season of giving, please consider purchasing a GP gift of membership for your family or friends. We have many options including a one or two-year membership, with a discounted two-year rate; and annual levels starting at $150. You also have the option of paying monthly for as little as $13 per month ($150 ART membership).

Additional benefits for 2021 will include:

Online gatherings featuring creative people affiliated with GP.
Online meet and greets with select artists.
Exclusive content for members to view from any device.
A revamped 2021 member newsletter featuring interviews with artists and supporters, sneak peek events, and other surprises.

Moreover, if you buy a one or two-year membership between now and the end of this year, you will be invited to an exclusive online artist event that will air sometime in 2021 and a member-only reception and tour of the new Cal Plaza! More information on this event, including the artist(s), in the weeks and months ahead. To purchase a gift membership today please visit our membership page here:

Again, thank you for your support this year and on behalf of everyone here at Grand Performances we wish you a safe and wonderful holiday season.

In appreciation,

Mari Riddle
Executive Director
