Artistic Director Trevor Copp wins Artist of the Year Award!

"Sometimes it must seem to the artists that the presenting world is completely foreign and impenetrable. The winner of the Artist of the Year award has been determined to break through that mystery. Seeking understanding, presenters have been questioned about what they need, how can they be encouraged to program his work into their seasons. He is concerned with identifying the barriers and discovering how can they be broken. At the same time, his programming is innovative even as it meets the needs of presenters. Trevor’s productions are both risky and accessible to both the presenters and audiences. He will bring you a Santaland to delight your audience, but also a First Dance which may challenge your audience. For his willingness to produce excellent art, while carefully considering his audience and for working with presenters who have face their own challenges, Trevor is being recognized as an exceptional artist."
