The Center for the Arts of Homer definitely raises the bar for central New York. Being able to see Arlo Guthrie twice in Homer, NY is fantastic, but the quaint and cozy venue makes it even better. The Center offers a myriad of entertainment, Friday night movies, art shows and yoga classes. We're so lucky to have this in our community.

Before sitting down to write, I pulled out all the old program books. Among those artists that standout are Richie Havens, Don Vappie, U. Utah Phillips, Cheryl Wheeler, Ola Onabule, Guy Clark, Arlo Guthrie, Karla Bonoff, The Four Bitchin' Babes, Frank Vignola and Bucky Pizzarelli and Elieen Ivers. The music program alone has enriched the lives of people throughout Central NY and beyond, justifying all the hard work and support. But, the Center is so much more. The programs for children, SAT prep, movies, the radio plays. I can't imagine live in Homer today without the Center.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the reactions of people who come to a concert for the first time and are amazed that we are here "in the middle of nowhere." A few weeks later, you will see them again which is even better.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated. Some work only when there is a special need, others are there for everything. Everyone has a role.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

become the premier arts program in the region and a leader in the nation.

The Center for the arts has be such a wonderful addition to the Village of Homer. It has a wide range of shows and attractions that it appeals to all age groups and tastes. Local musicians have also recognized such as; The Cafferty band, Dave Feinstein, Ten Man Push and others. Gallery showings of local and well known artists have also attracted many to the Center. There is always something happening at the Center for the Arts.

Intimate, nice place to see a performance. I appreciate the wide range of performers. Any seat in the place is good. The social hour prior to the show is nice. Earlier in the sound was not as good as it should be, given the great acoustics of the venue. But it's been good to fantastic recently.

We love it!! My family uses the Center for the Arts on a weekly basis by attending dance lessons. We also enjoy the concerts, theatrical performances, art shows, and charity events. We are very happy to have these cultural experiences available to us without having to drive somewhere; we have something wonderful in our our hometown!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

everything! We have not been disappointed with anything we have attended. The cultural opportunities have encouraged our young daughter to explore and learn more about the arts,her heritage and the world.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

fantastic! While having to put someone's name on a wait list for a soldout performance. Overheard:"we should have just ordered the tickets online.They are really nice here. We will be back." They truly welcome everyone who enters the center.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue for generations

Ways to make it better...

seating were reserved.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding! Hopefully all those use the center in someway can afford to give even $5 or $10. If everyone works together we can keep our center.

One thing I'd also say is that...

We love this center and want to see it succeed. We wish we had more time to give to the center.

I've lived in Homer for 3 years and in that time have become a huge fan and supporter of the Center for the Arts of Homer! Every concert that we've attended has been so impressive, acts from many countries. I've seen incredible, energetic acts like Eileen Ivers and Teada. I've had friends come from out of town for concerts at the center. Dan Hayes has great vision for the center - it's amazing to me what he's done for the center in such a short period of time. I think this venue could be A PREMIER 300-400 seat venue in NYS outside of NYC! Everyone who performs speaks to how much they love performing at the center and how much the appreciate the opportunity to perform there. I would never have thought that a town as small as Homer could provide concerts with such depth and diversity of talent. And at prices that make attendance affordable for everyone! Dan and the volunteers provide a wonderful welcoming atmosphere at the center for all events, including the free movies. What a joy to have a place like this in our community!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the incredible talent that Dan brings to the center. The Friday-night movies in the winter. (I saw Lawrence of Arabia on the big screen for the first time at the center!)

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

welcoming, hard-working, energentic and appreciative volunteers and staff who know first-hand what the center has to offer the community. One can see their love for the center in the effort they put in at all events.

I am always amazed at Dan Hayes' (C4Art director) ability to bring nationally prominent artists to the little town of Homer. There have been truly unforgettable performances. The space is very intimate and this has a uniquely synergistic effect. The audience is energized by the direct connection to the performer and, reciprocally, the performers become energized by the personal response from the audience. Many performers "love this space" and many have said the acoustics are perfect. Other offerings I have made use of are art exhibits and classes (ex Tai Chi).

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the many wonderfully intimate concert experiences that would otherwise not be available. One would have to drive to a city an attend in a large hall or drive hours to find a similar venue.

An absolutely wonderful addition to our community. Provides excellent opportunities of a variety of types, from local artists, to new and well run plays, to international and national artists. Bravo, the Center For the Arts provides an amazing venue for our community and the greater up state New York audience. The director Daniel Hayes, and the Board are very open to entertaining new ideas and new programs. We have been pleased to participate, attend and donate. Again an incredible addition to our community.

The Center for The Arts of Homer is such a boon to our small community. To be able to attend first class, wonderful conderts practically just stepping out your door has been a wonderful thing for music, art, and dance lovers in Cortland county and surrounds. Without it, one would have to drive at least 45 minutes or more to partake in entertainment of this level. During the winter, one is hesitant to make plans to attend events in Syracuse or Ithaca, not knowing what the weather might be. How nice that we don't have to succumb to cabin fever and the winter doldrums! Thank you, Center For the Arts of Homer!
