Letter: Festival Performance Series begins Sept. 12

By on September 3, 2009

Each year, over 3,000 people gather for a full day of encouraging young people’s involvement in arts endeavors and challenging youth to develop their abilities.

Free to the public, the Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival will take place on Sunday, April 18, 2010. It has been my joy to watch our community continue to embrace this wonderful event year after year.

I would like to thank our 2009 Corporate Sponsors for their commitment at last year’s festival: Midwest Window & Supply, Ottosen Britz Kelly Cooper & Gilbert, Ltd., Casey’s General Store, Elmhurst Chicago Stone Co., M.A.C. Excavating, Inc & Steel Buildings, The National Bank & Trust, Ross Electric, Inc., Waubonsee Community College, Elburn Chiropractic & Acupuncture, LePrinte Express, Maple Park Supply, Inc., Paisano’s Pizza & Grill, Co., Quinlan & Fabish Music Co., Sen. Chris Lauzen, State Street Dance Studio, Valley West Sandblasting & Painting, Inc., Village Bible Church, Vons Electric, Inc, Builder’s Asphalt, LLC, Campbell Concrete Construction, Inc, Castle Bank, Country Automotive and Harry F. Krauspe, DDS. Without this very special continuing commitment, our festival would not be the success it is today.

A new and exciting addition to the Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival, is the Festival Performance Series, which brings full-length quality performances to the Kaneland High School Auditorium at a fraction of the cost patrons pay in nearby Chicago suburbs.

Tickets are now on sale for our very first performance. We hope that you will join us on Saturday, Sept. 12, to see The Magic of the Spellbinder. This is a performance appropriate for ages 5 to 105, and all who attend will be amazed at the skill of this illusionist.

Ticket order forms can be found on the Kaneland website, as well as in all of the Kaneland School District buildings.

I look forward to seeing you all at this wonderful community event.

Maria Y. Dripps-Paulson
Executive Director of the Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival
