Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut to Partner with Ridgefield Playhouse in Support of Emerging Artist Series

“I would say to an aspiring artist, “You are already an artist – it is all there within you right now.” To an emerging artist I would say: “what exactly are you emerging from?” – sculptor David Parfitt

The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut is partnering with The Ridgefield Playhouse in support of the Emerging Artist Series, a new series that is specifically designed to give up-and-coming musicians the opportunity to headline their own shows. “We’re essentially offering musicians that significant transition from ‘support act’ for nationally known musicians to becoming headliners on their own,” says Allison Stockel, Executive Director of the Ridgefield Playhouse. “The Ridgefield Playhouse is excited to partner with the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut to introduce like-minded people to new musical acts that they may not have discovered on their own. It’s the arts community helping one another, while connecting with each other in a relaxed fun setting.”


Members of the Cultural Alliance will receive a discount on tickets and they are invited to meet the artist and network before each performance.  “We are thrilled to partner with The Ridgefield Playhouse on the Emerging Artist Series,” says Lisa Scails, Executive Director of the Cultural Alliance. “Our constant aim is to support artists of all disciplines.  This partnership makes it possible to broaden our focus on the performing arts and its diversity of artists.”

This great after-work event is the perfect setting to meet-up with co-workers and friends, and to enjoy a night of music, nibbles, and drinks.

The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut is supported by public and private funding, corporate sponsors, and by its 185 members including more than 55 arts, history, and cultural organizations.  To join as a member of the Cultural Alliance phone: (203) 798 0760 or
