The Avalon Foundation and Chesapeake College have announced the beginning of a new partnership designed to bring large-venue music acts to the Todd Performing Arts Center (TPAC).
Beginning in fall 2018, the Avalon will host a series of concerts and events at TPAC. “The Avalon Foundation’s team has nearly 60 years of event management experience, deep relationships with artist agencies and a loyal following of music lovers on the Eastern Shore,” Foundation President and CEO Alexander Bond said. “As part of our mission, we are always looking to expand our programming reach and connect more people with easy access to arts programming. TPAC offers a perfect venue for us to do so.”
The 904-seat TPAC expands the Avalon Foundation’s ability to host concerts beyond the historic, 400-seat Avalon Theatre and 60-seat Stoltz Listening Room in Easton.
“From the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra to international performance troupes, the Todd Center has long been a cultural hub and important space for bringing larger acts to the region,” Dr. Clifford Coppersmith, Chesapeake College President, said. “Our capacity to host even more shows and events makes this partnership possible and allows our two organizations to combine resources to grow arts audiences, improve arts accessibility and build and connect communities on the Mid Shore.”
The TPAC is also available for rentals. We have hosted various receptions, business shows, weddings, performances and exhibits. For more information about TPAC, call 410-827-5868 or email Dick Peterson. For information about Children's Theatre, please contact Linda Zaragoza at 410-827-5867
