Community Foundation Supports Glimmerglass Festival Outreach to Oneida, Herkimer Counties

(Utica, NY – June 8, 2011) The Glimmerglass Festival may just be over the Otsego County line in Cooperstown, but traditionally, only a small percentage of its audience comes from Herkimer and Oneida counties. With the support of a grant from The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties, Inc., the people behind the Festival aim to change that.

This year, residents of Herkimer and Oneida counties who have never attended a Glimmerglass performance, or have not been since 2006, can attend a production for just $12; the remainder of the ticket cost is subsidized by The Community Foundation grant.

Glimmerglass Festival’s Artistic & General Director Francesca Zambello encourages audience members to enjoy the scenic Glimmerglass campus and has added an array of special events, such as short musical programs, cast and crew question-and-answer sessions and special lectures to the season calendar.

The festival runs July 2 through August 23, with many matinee and early afternoon offerings. This year’s productions are Carmen, Medea, Annie Get Your Gun and the double bill of A Blizzard On Marblehead Neck and Later the Same Evening. Residents of Herkimer and Oneida counties who meet the criteria for the special ticket rate should call the Glimmerglass Box Office at (607) 547-2255 and mention HOCF to receive the special offer.
