The Hudson Valley Summer pass will provide discounted ticket bundles to events by Caramoor, the JBFC, Historic Hudson Valley, and Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival.

Those who can’t decide whether to attend Westchester’s superb events, art house screenings, Shakespeare fest, or musical performances no longer need pick just one. Four major county cultural players have joined forces to offer a forward-thinking new initiative, called the Hudson Valley Summer Arts Pass, aimed at allowing visitors to experience each venue at a reduced price.

The Hudson Valley Summer Arts Pass is a discounted bundle of tickets to the season’s top events at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, Historic Hudson Valley, Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, and the Jacob Burns Film Center. The pass is designed to help consumers better enjoy the venues’ abundance of arts and culture offerings while diversifying their experiences. Those interested in the pass can find a link to purchase it at each of the participating organizations’ websites through June 20, 2022; the pass is priced at $148.

According to Edward J. Lewis, III, president and CEO of Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, the pass will help each organization bolster the others. “Our region is host to such a rich and vibrant cultural arts community. By partnering with other premier arts organizations, we are able to pull from one another’s strengths, amplifying one another’s voices, and making a greater impact,” says Lewis. “We hope the Hudson Valley Summer Arts Pass will appeal to arts adventurers — those who are familiar to us as well as new residents who made our community their home during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a pilot program and, in the future, we plan to engage other organizations to build an even stronger cultural community.”

The Jacob Burns Film Center’s executive director, Mary Jo Ziesel, adds that the pass will open new frontiers for local cultural consumers. “It is essential that new audiences feel welcome as they try out new cultural experiences,” notes Ziesel. “By banding together with our peer organizations, we hope to send a clear message that the arts — in any medium — are for anyone and everyone.”

Ziesel adds that “The Hudson Valley Summer Arts Pass makes clear the fact that cross-organizational collaboration is key to arts organizations’ success; when we uplift our peers, we all benefit. As cultural institutions and nonprofits have been forced to throw out the playbook in the wake of the pandemic, we’re confident that working together to promote and support the arts in our community will help us transition from surviving to thriving.”
