The Center for Arts in Natick
Annual Report 2012
Our MissiOn We believe the arts are essential to a complete human experience and to the creation of a vibrant, healthy community. TCAN serves the Metrowest region by increasing opportunities to experience, participate in, and learn about the arts. To this end, TCAN strives to present arts programs of the highest standard that are available to everyone. TCAN dedicates its resources to providing community access to diverse arts programs, reducing barriers to attendance, and building appreciation through arts education.

AnnuAl repOrt 2012 The Center for Arts in Natick is flourishing. The designation of Natick Center as a Cultural District by the Massachusetts Cultural Council in 2012 recognizes the measurable impact of Natick’s arts organizations on our community. We were pleased to end our 15th year in strong financial shape. A surge in TCAN membership lifted our ranks to over 1,600 contributing members from across the region and beyond. We were fortunate to receive generous support from current and new leadership Circle members. A growing list of corporate sponsors and generous grants from Nellie Mae Foundation and Foundation for MetroWest provided important underwriting support to maintain the high standard of our programming. The 2012 fiscal year included a wide variety of arts programs that set new records for attendance. We enjoyed memorable popular music performances by Ben Taylor, Joan osborne, english Beat, Susannah Hoffs, Felix Cavaliere of The Rascals and Southside Johnny. Artists as varied as George Winston, Buckwheat Zydeco and the acclaimed Swingle Singers made appearances on the TCAN stage. We introduced the TCAN Young Masters Series featuring the next generation of classical musicians. And a strong season by the TCAN players ended on a musical note with a classic production of Stephen Sondheim’s “Company.” We are grateful to TCAN’s board, donors, and corporate sponsors for enabling us to provide affordable access to the arts. Without their support, we would not be able to provide the valuable programs that enhance Natick’s culture. Thank you to our members, patrons and sponsors, and to our dedicated staff and volunteers. I deeply appreciate your support and hard work that allows our organization to thrive. We are proud to be a part of the Natick community.

DevelOping CreAtivity Through affordable and accessible education programs, TCAN has helped foster community expression and provided a place for people of all ages to cultivate their artistic talents. In 2012, TCAN expanded its vocal and instrumental instruction through the intergenerational Sound & Spirit choral ensemble and RockWorks, an experimental rock band workshop for teens. With successful long term partnerships with the Television Workshop, pocket Full of Tales (now in its 12th year at TCAN), Walnut Hill School, and other public schools, TCAN has nurtured the creativity and confidence in students who took the stage. This encouragement helped students explore expression of the self at its deepest core, while enabling students who might not otherwise interact to cross demographic boundaries, including age, race, geography, income, gender, and ability.
preserving histOry When TCAN purchased and restored Natick’s Central Fire House in 2001, it also accepted the charge to care for this historic building. In 2012, TCAN invested in a Capital Systems Replacement plan to identify repairs and improvements that will be required during our next 20 years in this facility, and budget for them accordingly. To improve the energy efficiency of the Firehouse, a comprehensive energy audit was conducted that lead to the replacement of some stage lighting with modern LED fixtures. A complete replacement of the incandescent house lights and dimming system is now underway. looking to the future, TCAN’s Board of Directors approved the goals for an updated Strategic plan that included moving forward with a capital campaign to fund the renovation of the building’s second floor. TCAN completed a programming strategy, a detailed business plan and preliminary drawings of the new performance space. TCAN will also invest in upgrades to its main audio system with support from a grant provided by Foundation for Metrowest.
culturAl district on August 22, the Massachusetts Cultural Council recognized Natick Center as one of 13 designated cultural districts. The late 19th-century neo-gothic architecture and “quintessentially New england” town common distinguished Natick from other Massachusetts towns. Called “majestic” and “visually impressive” by the MCC, the district is a culmination of over a decade of historic preservation and public and private investment in the town center’s streetscape and façade improvements, and cultural facilities. Recognized as the “premier performing arts center in MetroWest,” TCAN serves as the anchor for this hub of cultural activity that draws an increasing number of tourists and patrons from surrounding communities. In 2012, TCAN drew over 21,000 attendees to Natick Center, while other events like Natick open Studios, the Art Walk, and historic walking tours created a cohesive schedule of cultural activities.
“TCAN has provided a much-needed additional performance and event venue for
our public schools, local nonprofit organizations, town functions, and community gatherings. We are very appreciative of this resource in our town.” – Martha White, Town Administrator

expAnDing BOunDAries As the arts community in Natick has grown, TCAN has developed significant partnerships with many local organizations. The Walnut Hill School for the Arts, an international leader in arts education, has evolved as one of TCAN’s key strategic partners. For a number of years, the two organizations have collaborated to deliver quality theater education and programming to the families of MetroWest. And in October, TCAN held its Annual Benefit in the Walnut Hill facilities, offering a master class by the artists for Walnut Hill students. The principals at both organizations have begun planning for an expanded partnership, sharing resources and developing new programming in film, dance, theater, and arts education.
“By offering free access to high quality music, theatre, and arts programs, TCAN significantly enhances the quality of life of our clients and the entire community.”
– Greg Tutuny, Natick Service Council
