The Circle

The Circle is an elite group of arts supporters at The Noorda. Our goal is simple: create a sphere of influence that unites those who wish to have a significant impact upon the performers, patrons, and students who are transformed in our center for true artistic collaboration. Your contribution and support will make this impact by enabling The Noorda to bring the greatest talent from across the world through its doors. While here, these performers and artists will collaborate with students, the community, and our youth. Many will set aside time to visit with Circle Members at exclusive VIP events.

Join The Circle today. Call (801) 863-4962 or for more information.
