PMD Promotion is proud to welcome one of our newest clients, The Kennedy Center in Washington DC. PMD was tapped earlier this Spring to advertise “Follies”, a production at the Eisenhower Theater starring Bernadette Peters, with Windowposter™ Displays.
The Kennedy Center, located on 17 acres overlooking the Potomac River in Washington, D.C., is America’s living memorial to President Kennedy as well as the nation’s busiest arts facility. Touring Kennedy Center productions and its television, radio, and Internet broadcasts reach millions around the world.
As part of the Kennedy Center’s Performing Arts for Everyone program, more than 400 free performances are offered each year featuring international, national and local artists. These include daily 6 p.m. concerts on the Millennium Stage – which will celebrate its 13th anniversary this season. The Kennedy Center is the only U.S. institution that presents a free performance 365 days a year. The Millennium Stage, created in 1997 and underwritten by James A. Johnson and Maxine Isaacs, features a broad spectrum of performing arts, from dance and jazz, to chamber music and folk, comedy, storytelling and theater. In 1999, the Center began web-casting each night’s live performance, and continues to archive and maintain each event in a database of more than 2,500 performances which may be accessed via the Center’s website, www.kennedy-center.org. The web-casts have been viewed more than 1,500,000 times. In the past 13 years, over 3 million people have attended Millennium Stage performances. The Millennium Stage has presented more than 45,000 artists, which includes over 3,000 international artists from more than 50 countries; performers representing all 50 states; and over 19,000 Washington-area ensembles and solo artists.
