Celebrating Corporate Appreciation Season!
We love all of our supporters. You know we do! But our Corporate Partners hold a special place in my heart, and I’m not afraid to show it. For the past three months, we at The Music Hall have been using our social media to acknowledge this incredibly supportive group. Traditionally this demonstration of gratitude has been confined to the month of January, known as Corporate Appreciation Month at The Music Hall. This year, while I wanted to uphold that tradition, I felt the need to expand Corporate Appreciation from one month to a three-month Corporate Appreciation Season. One month is simply not enough time to celebrate our sponsors, this steadfast group; I needed more time to appreciate all 59 of them and all they have made possible.
With time on my mind, as Corporate Appreciation Season winds to a close I wanted to specifically celebrate the commitment of our sponsors, your friends and neighbors who own these local businesses, by drawing your attention to their years – or sometimes even decades – of generosity.

To all The Music Hall’s Corporate Partners, thank you. We could not do what we do without you. Having you by our side this past year was reassuring, inspiring, and motivational. I look forward to working with you all to build economic and social stability for our community as we return to Portsmouth and the region to a bustling, vibrant scene.
Finally, I’d like to close with a special shout out to the Corporate Committee, the team of volunteer leaders who generously contribute their time and talents in service of the Music Hall mission. Members of this committee act as ambassadors for our organization, building the Corporate Partnership program to ensure the success of The Music Hall as a whole. I am sincerely grateful for all that they do and want to say a very special “Thank You” to each member of this committee: Jay McFarland, Chair; Monte Bohanan; Gail VanHoy Carolan; Paul Durham; Mary Horigan; Julia Madden; Hope Martin; Amy McLaughlin; Kim Meyer; Vicki O’Dowd; Jim Pender; and Elisabeth Robinson.
