Over the last twelve months, Caffè Lena kept busy on and off stage. In 2014, nearly 12,000 people passed through Caffè Lena’s swinging doors and audiences here in Saratoga, across the United States, Canada and Europe via ConcertWindow enjoyed more than 300 artists who took to the Caffè’s stage. Beyond these four walls, we hosted a Block Party, performances at venues throughout New York State, and completed Phase 1 of making much-needed improvements to our building. You will hear much more about this renovation project in the coming year.
We are so happy to share these milestones with you, because it is you who makes it all possible. Every ticket purchase, volunteer hour and Membership puts another artist on the stage and batch of cookies in the oven. While we do all we can to keep expenses low, the funds required to fill the calendar with diverse talents continues to rise every year.
By donating to the Annual Fund, you ensure Caffè Lena remains a venue nurturing artists within the broad umbrella of folk music for years to come. Every night the lights go down is another opportunity to share our common story, to understand one another just a little bit better and celebrate what makes this community and its music so precious.
You can keep the music alive. Please donate to the Annual Fund today.
