This spring, the James A. Michener Art Museum will present a three-part cabaret series featuring nationally known Broadway performers. Through a grant awarded through PNC Arts Alive, an initiative of The PNC Foundation, dozens of free tickets to each performance will be made available through an online sweepstakes. A limited number of tickets to the cabaret series, called PNC Arts Alive Presents Broadway Cabaret at the Michener, will also be sold. Performances will be held at the Michener Art Museum on April 6, May 11, and June 8, 2017. The lineup and performers will be announced in mid-February.
The Michener Art Museum is one of only 17 arts organizations in the Philadelphia and southern New Jersey region selected to receive the PNC Arts Alive grant, which is awarded for “bold thinking around increasing arts access and engagement.” In addition to the PNC Arts Alive Presents Broadway Cabaret at the Michener program, the grant provides the opportunity for young musicians from Philadelphia to perform at the Michener Art Museum and interact with the Broadway vocalists and musicians.
“The PNC Arts Alive Presents Broadway Cabaret at the Michener program will allow us to welcome new audiences to our museum to hear world-class vocal talent and will also give us a chance to introduce them to our world-class visual art,” said Lisa Tremper Hanover, director and CEO of the Michener Art Museum. “We are hopeful that this amazing cabaret series that was made possible by PNC Arts Alive will help establish the Michener in people’s minds as a premier go-to destination for quality arts experiences year-round.”
“Through PNC Arts Alive, we continue to help invigorate local arts organizations while bringing new and exciting programs to our community,” said Joe Meterchick, PNC regional president for Philadelphia, Delaware and Southern New Jersey. “The creativity and collaboration demonstrated by the local arts community is evident in the programs that will be introduced, while enabling new visits and residents alike to experience a diverse range of exhibits and performances.”
