Review for Center for the Arts of Homer Inc, Homer, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.
