There's so much to fit in at the end of the year! Today, we want to give a special thanks and welcome to our many new Friends of BSR who made the leap to donate this month, plus deep gratitude for our new Local Media Champions. Look out for more on this new donor opportunity before the end of the year.
Next up, a reminder that our annual BSR Year-end Recommend virtual event is tonight (Wed, Dec 20) at 6pm ET! All are welcome to this free Zoom get-together where BSR staff, writers, and readers swap our top recommendations of the year. It's an intimate, freewheeling conversation that leaves everyone with a great list of must-see, must-read, or must-listen media. RSVP here. It's free!
We also have huge thanks to everyone who joined us for our first-ever webinars, on review-writing and PR for artists. We were thrilled by the enthusiastic response to these, and we're already planning to offer more in 2024. And yes, for everyone asking: they were recorded! We're making each webinar available through December 31 for a recommended $30 donation, or you can become a Friend of BSR (starting at $5/month) and access them both. To donate and watch, email Neil Bardhan: [email protected].
And of course, we have this week's stories: our writers attended no less than four different Philly Nutcrackers last week, and they report back. We also have the latest at the Museum for Art in Wood, and an exciting first: a gallery of original art capturing Philly-area performances throughout the past year.
Thanks for spending December with us! We know what a busy time it is.
