GREETINGS FROM THE DIRECTOR

For nearly 30 years, the Redfern Arts Center on Brickyard Pond has been dedicated to presenting the finest performing artists and cultural attractions from around the world to the Tri-State region. Through our performances and educational efforts, we strive to inspire a greater appreciation for the performing arts as an essential component in the lives of our citizens. As we have in the past, we will continue to provide the community with legendary entertainers and extraordinary music, theatre, and dance performances.

We are particularly proud to introduce you to our 2009-10 season of entertainment and excellence and to a series of visiting artists who are new to the region. We know you will be as pleased to make their acquaintance as we are in presenting them to you.

So we invite you to review our Visiting Artists Series as well as all the arts events at Keene State College. The arts continue to thrive as Keene State begins its second century of academic community, and we look forward to having you be a part of that.

Cordially,

Bill Menezes
Director
