What if there was no Amazing Things? No live music in downtown Framingham? 

Our SPRING APPEAL ends on June 28!  It’s not too late to show your support!

Please donate what you can!

You are a key player in making sure that live music stays in MetroWest! Your gift will help keep great music, art and entertainment in our community, and will ensure that Amazing Things Arts Center will not only survive, but also thrive.

We are so grateful to our musicians Nancy Beaudette, Ball in the House, Dale LePage, Billy Novick, Antje Duvekot, Christine Lavin, Tom Smith, Loren & Mark, Laszlo Gardony, Geoff Bartley and Lennie Peterson for stepping up with their messages of support!  (Check the videos and messages below.)

Hope you didn’t miss this month’s incredible show with Ball in the House!  (They won’t be back until January 2018).  Here’s their message of support for our Spring Appeal!

 

In the past two years Amazing Things has undergone exciting advances in leadership, programming, and your online ticketing experience. We continue developing additional revenue sources, but rising operating costs, including technology and ongoing building maintenance, have stressed the current budget. Individual donors like you account for a significant portion of our annual revenue. Can we count on your support?

Please don’t let this chance go by and make your tax-deductible contribution today.

In this time of uncertainty, the arts engage and inspire us all. Amazing Things enriches the community. Now more than ever, the benefits of the arts can make a positive difference in the life of our community and you. Today, your support matters and we are counting on you. Thank you for your generosity!

Please give what you can!  We’ve suggested the following levels of giving, but grateful for every gift.

  • Bass:            $250 – $499
  • Alto:              $500 – $999
  • Tenor:           $1,000 – $4,999
  • Soprano:      $5,000+

Use this link to make your donation today or call the office 508-405-2787.  We also gratefully accept checks, mailed to 160 Hollis Street, Framingham MA 01702

 

Hi, this is the Loren and Mark guitar duo, and we can honestly say the Amazing Things concert series is one of our most fun shows to play! The Firehouse venue is the perfect size for intimate shows, and it has a real community spirit about it. Please donate what you can to help keep it going, we certainly want to come back to perform!!”

 

Geoff Bartley, “the godfather of the Boston folk scene”, has played Amazing Things numerous time, as feature, as “sidekick” to Tom Paxton, and as a member of the Folk Open Mic.  Though he avoids technology when possible, Geoff sent this message:  The Amazing Things Arts Center in downtown Framingham is one of the best gigs around. Lots of variety and surprises, too. Please lend your support!” ~ Geoff Bartley.  (photo by Dan Tappan)
