Giving back to the community through arts

The arts are an important element in the cultural fabric of a community. Live performances, dance and music feed the minds and souls of its citizens and that is critical for a well-balanced and culturally rich community. One of the most active and influential organizations in our town is the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts.

The Centre has been providing an important stage for local theatre and concerts and professional performances by artists from across Canada and around the world since 1977. The mission of the Centre is to provide Oakville residents with a place to learn about themselves and the world around them through dance, music, storytelling and theatre.

I’m proud to be associated with this wonderful organization by bringing a number of top shows and performances each year through the Dan Cooper Concert Series. The desire by the Dan Cooper Team to provide support for the arts is a testament to our commitment to give back to the community in which we work and live. We are not simply in the business of selling properties and helping buyers find homes. We are an integral part of this terrific community. We are your neighbour, our children go to school here and we shop in the same grocery stores. This is our community and the Dan Cooper Team is proud to play a part in shaping its character and its success.

We are involved in a number of good causes in Oakville, and our support for the Oakville Centre is just one more example of our commitment to help build a better community.
“Corporate sponsors like Dan Cooper help the Oakville Centre meet our mandate of bringing world class artists to Oakville,” says Ronnie Brown, marketing coordinator for the Centre. “When the community can experience various cultures through the performing arts, it provides each individual a chance to grow and learn more about themselves and people around them. Inspiration, creativity and participation go hand in hand for those who enjoy the arts and building abetter community to live in. With the Dan Cooper Concert Series we have been able to present some of the best Canadian artists like Holly Cole, Jann Arden, Colin James, Randy Bachman and international artists like Johnny Winter, RobertCray, Big Bad VooDoo Daddy and Tower of Power. Dan’s support has helped bring families and friends together to share special concert memories that will influence their lives in many ways.”

I invite you to watch for upcoming performances that make up the summer portion of the Dan Cooper Concert Series. Please check the Centre’s website www.oc4pa.ca for an update on these and some of the other terrific concerts that you can enjoy in one of the most intimate theatres in Canada.
