We hope that this letter finds you, your family, and your friends well. In these extraordinary times, Great Waters stands with our community partners impacted by the pandemic, and together express our gratitude for the outpouring of support for each other and our world. More importantly, we want to thank you for your uplifting notes and past support. You’ve made a difference—it helps to move us forward.
Although our current season has been interrupted and we are in an extended “Intermission,” we are working hard to plan our 2021 Season, stay in touch with the community through our social media, and are taking this opportunity to engage more directly with many of our patrons and partners.
“It is part of my summer experience. Music unites and plays a very important role in bringing people together. It is amazing to see people come from all over, just to be part of the experience.”
Chanticleer, known around the world as an orchestra of voices.
Great Waters 2021 Season is already shaping up to be spectacular! Shows are planned for all of our traditional Wolfeboro venues, AND, we’ve partnered with Castle in the Clouds to present “Concerts in the Clouds,” a 500-seat covered tent in the meadow on the Castle grounds. We are looking forward to having you join us to hear The Australian Bee Gees and Classic Albums Live Presents Hotel California.
Just imagine how it will feel to enjoy food and beverages, watch the sunset over Lake Winnipesaukee, and experience fantastic live music with your friends and family. Additionally, we are planning a full Wolfeboro season—including our community favorite Folk Festival, plus singer-songwriter-composer Peter Cincotti, and comedian Juston McKinney, both at Brewster’s Anderson Hall, and Neil Berg’s 50 Years of Rock ’N Roll at the Kingswood Performing Arts Center.
Our belief is that the value of performing arts and music for the Lakes Region goes beyond an evening of entertainment. It can heal, bring people together, drive self-reflection, open our eyes, ears, and, most importantly, our hearts.
Shared music, laughter, and experiences are what make us a community, what brings us together, and lifts our souls—something we will all need more than ever when this pandemic is over.
We recognize that this is a challenging time for everyone. We do not want to be insensitive to the abundant needs this pandemic has created and hope you understand that, but just like other community businesses and nonprofits, we too are faced with navigating this crisis, the length of which will be decided by the fortitude of a virus. We’ve taken immediate action to reduce our expenses as much as possible and applied for assistance from foundations and the federal government, but we know our long-term sustainability will rely on our patrons and donors. Your donation is essential—the support you provide us now helps ensure that Great Waters can bring the comfort and community of our summer music experience to you and the Lakes Region in 2021.
Generosity from you, as members of our community, will help us deliver the healing power of music and laughter, bringing us together again. Thank you for your consideration.
Please stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you in person next summer after our Intermission.
P.S. Please consider a gift of $100, $50 or $35, or whatever you can. Every gift will help.
