4.1.7 If Applicant is a non-profit entity, are Applicant events produced and managed primarily by paid employees (not volunteers)? YES
The Center for The Performing Arts dba The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is a 501(c)3 non-profit entity. We present performances by contemporary musicians of all genres, comedians, performing artists (including symphony, ballet and opera), educational programs and rental events.
All events are run by paid staff. We have volunteers primarily for our educational and fine arts programs but staffing at all events is primarily by paid staff including our full time staff of approximately 30 and our seasonal staff. As an outdoor amphitheater, our season generally lasts from late April to early November.
