Friends of Ludlow Auditorium recently received a donation in the amount of $250 from employees of Chittenden Bank's Ludlow office to help purchase a movie projector that will be used to show films at the new-renovated auditorium in Ludlow's Town Hall.
Friends of Ludlow Auditorium were recently created "to encourage and promote the use of the renovated auditorium in the town Hall for all appropriate forms of performing arts." Friends has already scheduled 5 summer concerts in the auditorium consisting of master concerts presented by the Okemo Young Artists Program. These concerts will feature star pupils and their teachers in special concert presentations during June and July.
Friends hope to provide first run movies for area residents in 2010 and other plans include periodic showings of first-run and classic movies, a Holiday Christmas production, political forums, and area band concerts.
