Sponsorship and Membership Opportunities

Founded in late 2003 and housed in Norman’s Historic Santa Fe Train Depot, The Performing Arts Studio (PAS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to create and present excellent and innovative fine arts programs for the enrichment and education of our community.

The City of Norman not only provides the PAS a home at the Depot, which is a great venue for Winter Wind Concerts, Jazz Concerts, Poetry Readings and Gallery space,  they also allow the PAS the use of Lions Park and Andrews Park for the Summer Breeze Concert Series. Without this generous support, the PAS could not continue to offer the high quality performances that this community has come to expect.

PAS programs are partially funded by grants from the Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts and the Norman Arts Council.  We depend a great deal on individual memberships, donations and corporate sponsorships to maintain the PAS programs. Established programs like: Summer Breeze Concerts; Winter Wind Concerts; Jazz Concerts; Concerts for Children and Families, are especially dependent on sponsors.

Second Sunday Poetry Readings have been held at the Depot since PAS began.  Hosted by former Oklahoma Poet Laureate and Oklahoma Book Award winner, Carl Sennhenn, the readings have developed a dedicated core audience.  It is a volunteer program, as is Art for Life, a free program for adults with health or social challenges taught by Cheryl Cozad, FA.

All of the PAS programs are supported by an active Board of Directors and committed volunteers.  But additional support and funding is vital for the PAS to continue to be a leader in this vibrant arts community. Our hope is that with you will partner with the PAS, through your financial support, to make Norman a world class arts destination.
