Thank you for joining us for POP 90.

What a night!

To be back on the Merrill stage, to revel in the artistry of so many creative friends, and to feel the love and support for the arts – it was truly magical. Throughout the evening I was moved again and again by the beauty, poignancy and joy of what it means to come together for performance – digital, live and livestreamed. And to top it off with the sweetest cherry of all, Cherry Lemonade. We all needed that!

We are grateful for the generous sponsors, hosts and artists that made tonight possible and for all of you who make the arts and Ovations part of your every day life.

Until we gather again, be well and take care,

Aimée M. Petrin
