Warner Theatre and WNPR Present MAKING HER STORY: Carolyn Kuan

This summer, WNPR's Where We Live is sitting down with prominent Connecticut women from very different backgrounds in the Warner Theatre's Nancy Marine Studio Theatre. The series closes on September 12 at 7 pm with Carolyn Kuan, Music Director of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra.

Host Lucy Nalpathanchil will ask each woman about "her story" -- the journey that led to her success in business, science or the arts. We'll explore questions like, how have they confronted gender bias in their careers? How do they balance work expectations with their personal lives? And what do they want the next generation of women leaders to know? This live series will also be taped for broadcast on the popular Where We Live daily radio program on WNPR. Bring your questions! Tickets include a brief pre-event reception at 6:15 pm with Lucy Nalpathanchil and our featured guest, as well as the production team from WNPR.

Carolyn Kuan is recognized as a conductor of extraordinary versatility. She has enjoyed successful associations with top tier orchestras, opera companies, ballet companies and festivals worldwide. Her commitment to contemporary music has defined her approach to programming, and established her as an international resource for new music and world premieres. Appointed music director of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra in 2011, she has recently signed a new six-year contract extending their creative collaboration through May, 2022.

About the Warner Theatre
Built by Warner Brothers Studios and opened in 1931 as a movie palace (1,772 seats), the Warner Theatre was described then as "Connecticut's Most Beautiful Theatre." Damaged extensively in a flood, the Warner was slated for demolition in the early 1980s until the non-profit Northwest Connecticut Association for the Arts (NCAA) was founded and purchased the theatre. The Warner reopened as a performing arts center in 1983, and restoration of the main lobbies and auditorium was completed in November 2002. In 2008, the new 50,000 square foot Carole and Ray Neag Performing Arts Center, which houses a 300 seat Studio Theatre, 200 seat restaurant and expansive school for the arts, was completed. Today, the Warner is in operation year-round with more than 160 performances and 100,000 patrons passing through its doors each season. Over 10,000 students, pre K-adult, participate in arts education programs and classes. Together, with the support of the community, the Warner has raised close to $17 million to revitalize its facilities. NCAA's mission is to preserve the Warner Theatre as an historic landmark, enhance its reputation as a center of artistic excellence and a focal point of community involvement, and satisfy the diverse cultural needs of the region.
