COVID-19

A Message from Our Directors

Dear Friends,

We hope you’re warm, safe, and well during these taxing times. We miss seeing you in person at the Fisher Center, and we're exploring ways to continue sharing artistic programming with you even while we can’t be together physically. Necessity is indeed the mother of invention, and we’re working with artists and collaborators to discover new modes of creating performances and cultural experiences online, expanding the Fisher Center’s reach into the digital sphere. We’ll be in touch soon with some updates, and hope we can help keep you entertained and happy over the coming weeks.  

The safety of our audiences and staff is our top priority, and the Fisher Center and Bard College’s response teams continue to monitor the situation closely. In the meantime we’re setting our sights on summer, and hope very much to be able to greet you in person and share SummerScape and the Bard Music Festival with you.  

Thank you for your continued support and loyalty to the Fisher Center.  

Best wishes, 
Gideon Lester, Artistic Director and Liza Parker, Executive Director
