Strengthened through The Arts: Giving Thanks to The Kimmel Center
This past Friday, Anne Ewers of The Kimmel Center for The Performing Arts gave her presidential address to an impressive bunch of trustees, financiers, partners, group leaders, press, and organizations. While going over the highlights of Kimmel Center's year, Anne gave a special shout-out to AL DÍA News, and our joint-town hall meeting that invited the Latino community to impart their concerns and their hopes during this pivotal election cycle. Amidst all the appreciative praise for those who have partnered with The Kimmel Center to create innovative and engaging programs in theater and in music for Philly's promising talents from a wide range of racial, socioeconomic, ability, and gender backgrounds, one AH-HA! moment stood out: A powerful rendition of "If I Can't Love Her," a song from Disney's Beauty and The Beast, by one of The Kimmel Center's very own. After Ewers's proud proclamation that The Kimmel Center had pummeled about 4 million dollars into the region, and has provided over 4,200 jobs alone through its commitment to diversify and provide artistic outlets for the community, guests of the President's Address were treated to delicious bites by Chef Jose Garces, restaurateur of The Kimmel Center's Volvér.
