Giving Tuesday

It’s #GivingTuesday, and we need your help!

Frederick County Bank has offered us a generous challenge gift if we can raise $2,500 in NEW MEMBERSHIPS or DONATIONS between #GivingTuesday (December 1st) and December 31st.  If you’ve ever considered becoming one of the valued members of the Weinberg Center for the Arts, or thought of upgrading your existing membership, now is a great time to do so.


  • Ticket-buying access before the general public (Secure the best seats in the house!)
  • Complimentary concessions coupons
  • Free tickets at higher membership levels


You don’t have to be a world leader or a billionaire to give back. #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together to do extraordinary things. Your gifts to the Weinberg Center make it possible for us to provide a showcase for both world-class international and up-and-coming artists that ticket sales alone may not cover. Your giving also helps us provide arts education programs for over 15,000 schoolchildren per year. You can help us continue to “pay-it-forward” for the next generation of artists.


Every new or increased gift you make will double its impact through Frederick County Bank’s generous matching gift.  You can join the millions around the world who are giving back this #GivingTuesday and help us reach our goal of $2,500 by:

Thank you.  Without you, the show would not go on.

The Nutcracker COVER

Maryland Regional Ballet presents

The Nutcracker

Maryland Regional Ballet, under the artistic direction of Joyce Morrison, will perform its 35th annual “Nutcracker” at the Weinberg Center this winter. Once again the Weinberg stage will become a magical place where trees grow, mice battle with toy soldiers, snow falls, and dolls come to life, making a young girl’s fanciful dreams come true.

This year, the Company will welcome guest artists from the New York City Ballet, who will dance the roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.  The Company also welcomes the return of Alexander Ritter, former soloist with York City Ballet, Boston Ballet, and the Suzanne Farrell Ballet, who will perform the magical role of Dr. Drosselmeyer for the 15th time.

Approximately 65 students from Frederick School of Classical Ballet will share the stage with these world-renowned artists; parents and local actors comprise the rest of the cast. Join us for this annual holiday tradition!
