I love that I could bring my son, even when young, and allow him to appreciate a variety of talent. The atmosphere is informal and intimate, the accoustics are great, and the people we've had the chance to enjoy have been universally wonderful. We're lucky to have such a resource located so conveniently.

We've attended some great concerts at the Center, particularly those by Johannes Linstead & his Flamenco Band. While there, we enjoyed the display in the Art Gallery too. The Center is a great regional asset. They allow outside groups to rent very nice meeting space. John Wyman Syacuse, NY

My husband and I have been to a few performances in Homer and all were very satisfying. Dave Gross, Grada and Arlo Guthrie were all enjoyable as were the refreshments. If I can get my husband to drive me, we'll most likely see another show.

The Centr for the Arts of Homer is such a great place to visit. They have top notch entertainment of all sorts. They reach their immediate community and stretch to cities beyond. I travel 45 minutes to visit a few times a year. The people who run the place are so friendly and aware of what their community wants for entertainment. They have received grants to pay the admission for children which makes this a family freindly place. I think the Center for The Arts in Homer is the best "Non Profit" place to visit.

I fell in love with Center 4 the Arts of Homer a few years ago. My friends and co-workers say, You're going where...Homer??? What could be Homer? It's a small community that the interstate passes by. What's in Homer is a terrific gem. It's a fabulous use of a former church sitting right on the town square. I live north of there and my home town put a similar size church to the wrecking ball. They put a video rental store in its place (that's worked out well for our community since everyone uses Netflicks now!) The people at Homer had a better idea. The Center has dance lessons, an art gallery, plays and concerts. There is something for everyone and they run the Center September through June so as not to compete with the areas' long established summer offerings. My first concert Glengarry Bouys. Great acoustics ..you feel part of the music. The center offers Irish dance lessons and all over the sanctuary kids were dancing. (Not obnoxiously running around, but dancing.) These kids never sat down. We didn't either. Get to the Center before the concert starts and save your seat by putting down a sticky note with your name on it. Then go to the church's former community room where you can have a glass of wine or a beer...maybe a piece of cake before the show. At intermission and often after the show, you can meet the musicians, buy a CD and sometimes get an autograph. We saw Richie Havens there, twice. So intimate..he was singing just in front of us. We are seniors..as is Richie Havens now, but the audience had people of all ages. Everyone around us was enthralled. I swear I saw Richie Havens do a back flip after his last set! Good music, good art and a place where we always are well entertained is for us priceless!

The Center has consistently provided amazing musical acts in a wonderful venue. My family and I are proud to be members and supporters of this wonderful organization. To have a resource of this quality, with such diversity of offerings in the performing and visual arts, is truly an asset to be treasured and supported.

We've gone to the Center of the Arts of Homer for classes, concerts, bazaars, the list is endless. We couldn't be happier to have their services. If the ballroom dancing classes are offered on the weekends that husband doesn't work someday then we intend to take that class too!

The Center for the Arts has become the hub of intellectual and artistic exuberance in this community. They have something for everyone. It is such a beautiful and acoustically marvelous building. Would have been a terrible loss if this building was not saved from the wrecking ball.
