Welcome
WELCOME!
Whether you’re here for your first performance or your hundredth, thank you for
joining us! It’s through the loyal patronage and support of people like you that
Wells Fargo Center for the Arts has been able to grow, improve, and expand our
A Message from the Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers
offerings to the community over the past 34 years.
The past two years have been incredible here at the Center, distinguished by
many successes and improvements, including the opening of our new Sculpture
Garden featuring massive redwood sculptures by local artist Bruce Johnson, new
partnerships with several local theatre companies, the addition of the Anova
Center for Education to our campus, expanded education and outreach
programs, growing community support marked by record-setting memberships
and fundraising, and more-and-more sold out performances!
Many of you have taken one of our surveys over the past few years – thank
you! Based on your feedback, we’ve made upgrades to our ticketing system (you
can now select your own seats when purchasing tickets from mobile devices),
we’ve converted to a more efficient Point-of-Sale system at our concessions
stands, and most recently we’ve increased concessions staffing and capacity to
help increase service speed and allow us to increase selection down the road.
On behalf of everyone at the Luther Burbank Memorial Foundation (owner
and operator of Wells Fargo Center for the Arts), it’s our pleasure to serve our
community, and we look forward to keeping this momentum going into the
future!
Thank you again for attending, and enjoy the show!

Chair, Board of Directors
Executive Director
P.S. Our members receive pre-sale opportunities on new shows, the best seats,
and other perks, while also providing access to the arts for over 30,000 North Bay
children each year. See page 14 for more information on how you can join!

Musically speaking,
Diana Krall is no
wallflower.
By any standard this five-time
Grammy® winning jazz pianist and
vocalist is one of the most
accomplished and distinctive
musicians in the world today. Respected
far and wide as a wildly successful
sixteen-time Grammy® winning producer
recording and performing artist, Krall
remains a true musical force. At any given
moment she could be producing Barbra
Streisand’s new album, serving as musical
director and arranger for Paul McCartney or
hitting the road for a good cause with Neil
Young. As the record shows, Diana Krall has
already done all that and much more. Along
the way Krall has sold more albums than
any other female jazz artist of the last 30
years, establishing herself as one of the
best-selling and most beloved performers of
her generation, one whose recordings thus
far have earned her nine gold, three
platinum and seven multi-platinum albums.

she has recorded a collection of songs from
the Sixties to present day, showcasing her
considerable gifts as a vocalist in a bold and
beautiful way. Krall sings a set of songs that
include familiar popular classics like The
Mamas and the Papas’ “California
Dreaming” and the Eagles’ “Desperado,”
favorite vintage songs by Krall’s musical
heroes Bob Dylan (he inspired the album’s
title track “Wallflower”) and Elton John

Feature Performances
Lewis Black, Grammy Award-winning
stand-up comedian, is one of the most
prolific and popular performers
working today. He executes a brilliant
trifecta as stand-up comedian, actor and
author. Receiving critical acclaim, he
performs over 200 nights a year to sell out
audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand,
Canada and United States. He is one of a
few performers to sell out multiple
renowned theatres including Carnegie Hall,
Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre,
New York City Center, the Main Stage at the
Mirage in Las Vegas and most recently a
sold out Broadway run at the Richard

Wells Fargo Center for the Arts Opens
New Sculpture Garden
36
Sculptor Bruce Johnson
Opened this past June, a new Sculpture Garden – located at
the northeast end of the Center’s campus, between the
Center’s building and the Sutter Hospital campus –
showcases rotating works from contemporary regional
artists. The Sculpture Garden is free and accessible to the public,
and currently features distinctive redwood sculptures designed by
highly-acclaimed local artist Bruce Johnson for the inaugural exhibit,
which will last through May 2017.
The Sculpture Garden is the unifying focal point for the various
other aspects of the visual arts pieces that are already on display at
Wells Fargo Center for the Arts. The visual arts have always been an
intrinsic component of the programming at the Center dating back to
the early 1980’s when the Museum of Contemporary Arts was housed
onsite. Although the works relocated in 2006, other significant
paintings and sculpture displayed at the Center include works by
thirteen local and regional artists such as Robert Ellison, Dennis Leon,
Diana Meehan, and Roberto Santo. With the new Sculpture Garden,
the Center’s walkable campus can now easily be experienced as an

integrated Art Walk, incorporating all the visual arts and elevating the
profile of the Center as a comprehensive center for the visual and
performing arts and a community resource. The physical concept for
the garden, how best to adapt the current space to most successfully
display artwork, its design, and planning is by Bill Mastick, Quadriga
Landscape Architecture and Planning with offices in Santa Rosa, San
Francisco and Sacramento.
”Root 101,” the inaugural exhibit by Bruce Johnson is comprised
of colossal wood sculptures made from salvaged old growth
redwood, which he has been working with for 50 years. Three years
ago, Johnson acquired 80 tons (four truckloads) of huge salvaged
redwood stumps and chunks, some trees over 1,000 years old near a
tributary to the Eel River. “There is something primal and archetypal
about these huge water washed forms,” observes Johnson. “Within
the form of roots and swirl of grain you can see and touch patterns of
nature and feel the fractal expression of growth and energy. These
materials are the heart of the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts exhibit.”

Education Through the Arts
The Arts—Where Learning Comes To Life!
Serving 30,000 children and adults annually from
five counties.
Quietly (and not so quietly) at work outside of the spotlight,
the Center’s nationally-recognized Education Through the Arts
program uses the Arts to teach core subjects, including math,
science, and reading, to create new ways of learning and
improve engagement and understanding.
Education
Each year we:

n Present nearly 30 weekday morning School Shows
for North Bay school children that correspond to their
classroom learning. For many children, this is their first
time seeing a live performance.
n Conduct 50 Artists in the Schools workshops led
by our artist-educators who use the arts to help teach
core curriculum subjects, increasing comprehension
and retention, and acknowledging that students learn
in different ways.
n Operate a 450-piece Music For Schools instrumentlending library, allowing low-income students the
opportunity to participate in their school’s band or
orchestra program.
n Offer more than 250 hours of Professional
Development opportunities for teachers, helping
them learn how to integrate the arts into their core

Removing Roadblocks to the Arts
Truth is, not everyone can afford to participate in the arts. Yet, music,
dance and theater are at the heart of every community, providing
one of our greatest means for understanding and communication.
We believe these benefits should be shared by all and are working to
remove financial barriers to the arts in our community.
n Evert Person’s ArtReach—
Each year, the Center distributes approximately 12,000
free and reduced-price tickets to low-income students and
community members, helping make the Arts accessible for all!
Education
n The Evert Person Bus Fund—
grants for student transportation to
the theater
n Subsidized Programming—

Why Education Through the Arts?
At Wells Fargo Center for the Arts, we believe in art for art’s sake,
but we also know that the arts are an incredible tool that stimulates
creativity and communication skills, and also helps children develop
self-esteem. By integrating the arts into core curriculum lessons, we
are using the power of the arts to teach all subjects, including math,
science, and social studies, while also acknowledging that children
learn in different ways.
Why Now?
As we see cuts to arts and music education in the classroom, our
programs help fill the gap for students and teachers in
our community.

Your Community Gathering Place
In the late 1970s, a group of 12 local community
leaders envisioned a home for the arts. They
dreamed of a vibrant gathering place where
people could treasure the wonderful talents of
local performing artists and enjoy world-class
performances without having to travel to San
Francisco and beyond to see them.
Founders
“We really wanted an arts center for our
community,” noted the late Henry Trione, one
of the Center’s founders. “So, when the church
building came up for sale, we decided to buy it
on our own.”
Ed and Marion Gauer
Such is how our founding families arrived at
a bankruptcy auction for the Center’s River
Road complex. As the only cash bidder, our
founders walked away with the property for
$4.5 million, reaching deep into their own
pockets to purchase the Center on behalf of
the community.

Meet Our Volunteers
Linda Hawke has a green thumb and a big heart.
Linda has been volunteering in hospitals since the
age of 11, and it was during one of her many
shifts at Sutter that Linda was invited by a friend
to join her as a volunteer at Wells Fargo Center
for the Arts. Linda hasn’t stopped since 2009. After all
these years she still “enjoys the different opportunities
and avenues to meet and work with patrons, volunteers
and staff”. In her time at the Center, Linda has worn
several hats -- she has conducted volunteer
orientations, helped with volunteer scheduling, and
enjoyed volunteering in “The Club”, an intimate
pre-show reception for members. Candice Day,
Executive Assistant at the Center says, “Linda truly
understands the meaning of volunteering and its

importance within our community. With her warm and
welcoming smile, Linda oversaw the Orientation of new
incoming volunteers always making sure that they truly
understood how very important their volunteer work is
to the Center.”
Outside of the Center, Linda has always worked
with flowers and gardening. Her husband is the
President of a local winery and Linda does all the flower

selection, purchasing and landscape planning. “Climate
dominates what you plant and after living in Illinois,
Utah, Georgia and Arizona, Northern California has been
a gardener’s paradise.”
During performances, Linda likes to spend time out
in the lobby, chatting with other volunteers and being

available to help our patrons with any needs they have.
Her favorite performances have been the “true
entertainers” like Dave Koz, Chicago, Earth, Wind and
Fire, as well as Move Live (with Julianna and Derek
Hough) and Shirley MacLaine who “really bonded with
the audience.” Her biggest kick was seeing an all-male
ballet performance, “I really didn’t know what to expect
but I loved it!” Through her dedication and great attitude
Linda truly supports our mission to Enrich, Educate and
Entertain Sonoma County through the arts.

What our members, donors, and sponsors make possible
“Thanks to you,
music is my life.”
Elsie Allen High School Senior
Eduardo Barazza will be the first in
his family to go to college. Even
though he was born into poverty, his
mentor and music teacher predicts he will
be “a great success in life.”
A trumpet paved the way for Eduardo’s
unlikely success.
How? Eduardo got his trumpet in 7th
grade from Music For Schools, one of the many
Eduardo Barraza,
educational programs funded by our members,
donors, and sponsors. The only public

Sonoma State University, Fall 2014
Instrument from Music For Schools:

over 400 donated instruments to aspiring
student musicians like him.
“I don’t know what we’d do without
Music For Schools,” says Kyle Thompson, Elsie
Allen music director. He estimates 85% of his
kids are using Music For Schools instruments.
Want to get involved in
Music For Schools?
1) Donate an unused instrument (call
Chrystie Prokopakis at 707.800.7504).
We’ll refurbish it and put it to work
transforming the life of a student.
2) Become a Wells Fargo Center for the
Arts member. In addition to priority
tickets and other benefits, you’ll help
fund Music For Schools and our
other educational programs.
Music For Schools transforms lives.
Eduardo’s trumpet gave him a passionate
love of music, but it also gave him the chance
to grow into the leader he is today. “Eduardo’s
leadership skills are at such a high level,” says
Kyle Thompson, “he is the most skilled teacher
of peers I have ever had in a class.”
Music has not only given him leadership
skills, Eduardo says, it’s helped him become a
confident public speaker – a skill he’ll bring
with him to Sonoma State University this fall
where he will major in Business and minor in
Jazz Studies.
All this from the loan of a trumpet our
donors made possible.

SEATING CHART
76
The Ruth Finley Person Theater at Wells Fargo Center for the Arts is a flexible venue
allowing for both seated and open floor configurations. When seated, the 1681-seat venue
is the largest fixed seat venue in Sonoma County. When main floor seats are removed, the
open floor/seated balcony configuration raises the capacity to 2000. The theater’s unique
thrust stage design, with no seat more than 75 feet from the stage, provides a level of
intimacy between artists and audiences unlike any other in Northern California. For more
than 30 years, Wells Fargo Center for the Arts has been the best place to see your favorite
performer up close and personal.
