Become Part of ARCA’s Donor Family in 2021

The past year was filled with numerous challenges, unprecedented in number and severity in modern times.  It is our sincere hope that you have safely weathered these storms and remain in good health and spirits.  The importance of food for the soul, in both a religious and artistic sense, was made especially poignant during the year’s long periods of isolation from family and friends. Even the connectivity offered through technology could not replace the fulfilling experiences of live, in-person gatherings, which have enriched us every day of our lives.

In the face of these challenges, ARCA expresses its sincere thanks for the continuing devotion of ARCA’s members and donors! It stands as a vivid testimony for the value that you – our ARCA Member Family – place on this grand vision begun fifteen years ago. With your continuing support we will keep that dream alive.

In 2020, concerts were presented safely and the Red Brick Gallery reopened under COVID guidelines and mitigation. Thank you for your cooperation adhering to the recommended safety protocols, which will need to be continued until further notice to allow us to gather and fill Lincoln Hall to 50% capacity.  Last fall, someone attended an ARCA concert saying it was their first time out in the public during COVID; they shared that they felt completely safe in Lincoln Hall because of patrons’ adherence to ARCA’s COVID mitigation protocols.

In 2021, ARCA will continue to present concerts in compliance with Pennsylvania COVID guidelines including temperature checking at the door and mask wearing in socially distanced seating at 50% of capacity.  The season will offer a blend of new faces and old friends, including artists re-scheduled from COVID last year.

We invite you to be a part of our Donor Family in 2021 and enjoy the benefits of membership associated with your designated level.  Because ticket sales cover only a fraction of the cost of presenting events, ARCA relies on financial support from businesses, foundations, government agencies, and most importantly, individuals like you to make up the difference.

Your gift is greatly appreciated, and helps make ARCA a vibrant contributor to the culture and sense of community in our region. Join your friends and make new friends at ARCA events and take pride in helping sustain music, art, and culture where we all live and work.

Once again your Membership will give you discount pricing for events right here in the Valley that otherwise would only be available in larger cities at higher ticket prices (not to mention travel and parking). But as our ARCA family knows, it’s much more than that. ARCA is a place for you to come with your family and socialize with your friends and make new friends – at concerts, our annual Membership picnic, special donors events and at the very popular Meet the Artist and post-concert receptions at the Red Brick Gallery.

ARCA’S 15th Anniversary Season

ARCA’s 15th Anniversary spring and summer seasons have been artistically excellent and richly diverse with an exceptional educational video created for the local Allegheny-Clarion Valley Schools by acclaimed educator and violinist Monique Mead – and a number of sell-out performances – from theatre organist Dave Wickerham and blues/soul vocalist Chantal Joseph to High Fidelity Bluegrass. And it has been very exciting to see a very healthy number of ‘first-timers’ discovering ARCA, Lincoln Hall and many of the new artists who have joined us this year!

As ever, ARCA’s loyal and dedicated donors and audience members are the lifeblood of the organization.  The Board of Directors is deeply grateful to its donors for their continuing attendance at ARCA concerts and Red Brick Gallery exhibits and for their generous support during the past year and a half of COVID restrictions and cancellations.

This fall we are celebrating 15 years since ARCA’s first concerts in Lincoln Hall with Red Brick Gallery exhibits and an eclectic mix of artists and festive anniversary concerts.

Here is ARCA’s revised 2021 Fall Concert Season.  Because concerts have been selling out, be sure to reserve early for concerts of your choice!

The Red Brick Gallery and Gift Shop celebrates promises another enticing year of exhibits by both visiting artists and ARCA’s award-winning resident cooperative artists members.

Current members of the Red Brick Gallery Artist Cooperative are Mark DeWalt, Donna Edmonds, Blanche Hall, Angela Taylor Hardwick, Nick J. Karellas, Dennis Keyes, Jason Floyd Lewis, Glenn and Linda Thompson, and Cathy and Jack Trzeciak.  With your help in 2021, Red Brick Gallery exhibits and Gift Shop offerings promise to delight and inspire, continuing their high standard of excellence.
