From the 1928 construction of the new Orpheum to the construction of the Halloran Centre, generous Mid-Southerners have been at the heart of Main and Beale. With gifts large and small, through donations and patronage, the Orpheum Theatre Group has stood the test of time thanks to the people in its community.
Get to know some of our donors!
When they’re not hard at work crafting grant applications, mentoring artists, or stewarding donors, the staff at ArtsMemphis can be found at Playhouse on the Square for an opening night, the Metal Museum for a molding class, or the Levitt Shell for a summer concert. CEO Elizabeth Rouse and her team of 6 not only love our city, but they love the artists who bring it to life. Their vision is for every individual to feel pride in our city’s authentic cultural assets and experience the impact of the arts in their lives. The Orpheum Theatre Group is one of over 70 local organizations to benefit from ArtsMemphis’ grants program, through which 164 grants were awarded last year. Memphis is the city it is because of ArtsMemphis and their generous donors, who ensure that the arts will continue to thrive in the bluff city.
Thank you to our friends at ArtsMemphis.
