On Thursday, April 15 at 7 pm, we held the Guild’s “You Make Our Light Shine” virtual fundraiser event! Attendees enjoyed an inspirational half-hour of entertainment and speakers, featuring performances and testimonials by Guild artists, supporters, donors and students. These speakers and performers reminded us all of what the Guild has done for the community, and where it’s going, all while sharing our vision for a more inclusive – and creative – Northfield.
Features of the event:
- Hearing from our new Executive Director, Andrea Sjogren!
- Performance by Guild Theater favorites Steve Lawler and Kyra Reverman, singing “Found/Tonight” which is a totally cool mash-up of the songs “The Story of Tonight” from “Hamilton” and “You Will Be Found” from “Dear Evan Hansen”.
- Northfield Poet Laureate, Rob Hardy, reciting an original poem he wrote and composed for the occasion.
- An original song composed by Northfield Arts Guild alum, and award-winning NYC writer/composer, Karl Amundson, created for the event. Karl will also give his testimonial on how the Guild influenced his artistic journey.
- Enjoying this playlist created by our Youth Board Members!
Your support fuels our mission to inspire artists of all ages and skill levels with inclusive opportunities, connect audiences to new art and ideas, and grow our increasingly diverse audience to strengthen our community.
Help the Guild reach our $50,000 goal for this event!
