The Circle

The opening of The Noorda marks a major milestone for the arts in Utah County. With seven performance venues and a community that is passionate about the arts, The Noorda is proud to open its doors and introduce you to world-class artists and performers, professional community talent, and, most importantly, the UVU student artists whom it serves.

The Circle is an elite society of arts supporters at The Noorda. Our goal is simple: to create a sphere of influence that unites those who wish to have a significant impact upon the performers, patrons, and students who are transformed in our center for true artistic collaboration.

Your contribution and support will make this impact by enabling The Noorda to bring the greatest talent from across the world through its doors. While here, these exceptional performers and artists will collaborate with students, the community, and our youth. They will educate, mentor, and guide Utah’s artists (present and future) to reach their own great artistic heights. Many will also set aside time to get to know you and help you to learn and discover in unique and powerful ways.

Better still, your gift to The Noorda has a dual purpose. Not only does your gift ensure that the The Noorda can continue to offer our community one-of-a-kind performance experiences, but every dollar that you give frees up ticket revenue that can be put right where we want and need it – into much needed scholarships and programmatic support for UVU students.
