Now in its third season, Sample Night Live connects high-quality local arts organizations to new audiences with a fun rock-and-roll-style show the first Wednesday of every month. Since its inception in 2008, Sample Night Live has connected more than 300 high-quality arts organizations with more than 4,000 new fans.
Audience members have the opportunity to opt-in to the mailing lists of organizations they like and are automatically entered to win free tickets to The Guthrie and The Ordway, as well as numerous other prizes contributed by the evening's performers. They also receive a swag bag filled with freebies and discount coupons to arts events across the Twin Cities. There are even special goodie bags for kids!
Sample Night Live's 2010 season is sponsored by Travelers and supported by the Saint Paul Cultural STAR Program, The F.R. Bigelow Foundation, Ecolab, Padilla Speer Beardsley, The Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, Western Bank, and the Saint Paul Foundation.
