“I’m amazed at how many roadblocks PNB has been able to circumvent in order to keep this organization running and its dancers dancing—proving over and over again that art and artists cannot and will not be stopped. Never in a million years did I think that the opportunity to dance for a live audience would be taken away from us, but never have I been prouder to be a part of this great company. I look to 2021 with hope for a brighter year ahead, but confident that we can navigate any challenge that comes our way with the help of supporters like you.”
—Laura Tisserand, Principal dancer
The PNB you know and love stops at nothing, not even a pandemic, in our quest to create, educate, and bring joy to the world through dance. We’ve accomplished a lot together in the last eight months, from launching a first-of-its-kind all-digital season and delivering PNB School classes via the internet, to where we are today—slowly and carefully welcoming dancers and small groups of students back to the studios. We choose to focus on the positive and the many ways PNB can continue to be a beacon of light, and source of inspiration and solace in this time of uncertainty.
“To the family of PNB donors: You are our lifeline. Until the whole orchestra can be back where it belongs, performing as an integral part of PNB, we rely on you to keep hope and our company alive. Thank you for coming with us on this journey into the uncharted waters of this season.”
—Joyce Ramee, Viola and founding member of the PNB Orchestra
Your tax-deductible gift to the Future Fund will help PNB to continue the work we’re doing while we’re reinventing PNB’s future. Your PNB team has been reduced in size because of the pandemic and our inability to perform to full houses at McCaw Hall. The gift you make today will shape PNB’s future tomorrow.
