September E-Newsletter


You are Cordially Invited
Doesn’t it feel great to get a personal invitation? Here at COPPeR, one of the 3 pillars of what we do year round is INVITE residents and visitors to experience the arts. Walk with us as we explore Art on the Streets with Mayor Bach. Applaud with us in theaters throughout the region by selecting a show from our brand new Fall Theatre Guide. Or volunteer with us to share about the arts at a local festival. None of these experiences would be the same without you because the arts belong to all of us. So get out there this month! You are cordially invited.
Christina McGrath
Executive Director
