Many of us look to the arts for pleasure and entertainment. Without art education, we would be without many of the creative people and organizations that bring us such enriching cultural artifacts and experiences.

Despite this, there is overwhelming scientific data that supports the prioritization of art education.

The Newberry Opera House will officially raise the curtain on Saturday, August 15, 2020, with Black Jacket Symphony and their tribute to Prince’s “Purple Rain” album!  The Board of Directors along with the staff have been thoughtfully planning for reduced capacity seating, enhanced sanitation, updated concessions protocols and additional safety initiatives.
