Auld Lang Syne (Times Gone By)

It may be a cliché, but time waits for no one! As each day passes, families are welcoming new babies; saying goodbye to loved ones; experiencing euphoric highs and dark lows; and creating memories (some cherished while others may sooner be forgotten). Our lives are complicated and complex.

As 2016 draws to a close, we want to thank you for making the Long Center part of your life. Whether you were seeing a show, attending a meeting or special function, or enjoying one of our free community events, having you here is very special to us!

We hope to see you in 2017! As a gentle reminder, make time to create those memories with family and friends that bring a smile to your face; that lighten your heart and make you laugh.

If you are considering an end-of-year donation, please remember the Long Center. We are uniquely Austin and a nonprofit that:

  • Serves as a community gathering place;
  • Celebrates diversity;
  • Enriches lives through the arts;
  • Instills passion in children and youth;
  • Gives thousands of seats away to at-risk and under-served communities;
  • Supports other nonprofits with free tickets and items that raise money for their missions; and
  • Was built by the community for the community!


We are honored to be Austin’s Creative Home and look forward to being the place you and your family and friends can make life-long memories at in 2017!

Happy New Year,

Cory Baker | The Long Center for the Performing arts
