Testimonials


Kathy Wills

MidFirst Bank is proud to be a Corporate Partner with the Scottsdale Cultural Council. We have found this partnership beneficial to both our employees and clients. In the fall of 2013, we hosted one of our best-ever client events at a reception at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, prior to the Jason Alexander performance. Our clients were given the chance to have a personal photo taken with the entertainer and the development staff at the Center were amazing in helping coordinate this personalized opportunity. It was a fantastic performance in a beautiful location as well!

Jeffrey H. Wolf
Partner, Quarles & Brady LLP

As one of the newest members of the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts advisory board, I look forward to diving into this opportunity and making an impact. One of my long-term goals has been to support the arts in a way that is meaningful. Ultimately, having a daughter who dances competitively and has a strong passion for the performing arts inspired me to join the Center’s board. The fact that my law firm, Quarles & Brady, is committed to supporting community causes made this a perfect fit. Thank you to the board and staff for giving me this new opportunity.


Polly Morris and Randy Nussbaum

My wife and I are avid supporters of Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. When we attend a show in one of their theaters, we know that the performance will be of the highest quality, with the entertainment thoughtfully selected by a very discriminating staff. The presentation will be enhanced by a state-of-the-art facility whose size guarantees an intimate experience. We have been attending the Center for more than 20 years and even though we enjoy frequenting other theaters, Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts is our favorite venue, without question.


Ann Siner
My Sister's Closet

The Scottsdale Cultural Council is please to shine the spotlight on some of the outstanding arts supporters for our new Corporate Partners Program. This month, we welcome Ann Siner, CEO and founder of My Sister’s Closet, whose business is the supporting sponsor for Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts’ presentation of the hit Off-Broadway play Love, Loss and What I Wore. Here are a few words from Ann about how she feels about the arts:

Imagine life without art.
No music.
No theatre.
No dance.

Bare walls.

No inspiration.
No entertainment.

Our city without the world of art would be a forest without trees.

Support the arts!

Howard S. Wright, A Balfour Beaty Company

I am a Scottsdale resident and have been so for more than 15 years. As an arts and culture advocate, I have always appreciated Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts and SMOCA as local resources to assist me in sharing this appreciation for the arts with my family. My oldest daughter is now living in New York where she works on Broadway productions both in New York and on traveling shows worldwide. My involvement at the Cultural Council began in 1998 with the first remodeling of the old United Artists 5 theaters into what is now SMOCA. In 2008, I was able to again become actively engaged in the Center when Howard S Wright was selected by the City to complete the latest renovations to the Dayton Fowler Grafman Atrium and Virginia G. Piper Theater. Working closely with the staff and getting to know them personally through this experience has only increased my appreciation for this local amenity.


Bruce E. Beverly
Chief Executive Officer, Great American Title Agency, Inc.

Great American Title is incredibly grateful to call Arizona our home, and as a privately owned company, we take our civic responsibility very seriously. Our ownership and workforce live in this wonderful state, which motivates us to partner with great organizations like the Scottsdale Cultural Council to help our community to grow and prosper. At a time when financial support for the arts is eroding in our schools, we feel it is essential that we do what we can to preserve and nurture them for future generations to enjoy. Together we can be GREAT!


Robert Jones
COO and General Manager, Desert Mountain Club, Inc.

The Desert Mountain Club, Inc., is honored to partner with the Scottsdale Cultural Council in promoting and developing the arts in Arizona, and helping to create an awareness of the diverse cultural opportunities available in Scottsdale.

They recognize that, without community backing, art in any form cannot survive.
