Our Mission

The Angel Ticket Program of the Fine Arts Center exists to provide complimentary performance tickets to residents of Hampshire, Hampden and Franklin Counties whose financial and/or social situation would otherwise prohibit them from experiencing live performances by national and international touring artists. Tickets are granted to the clients of eligible non-profit, human-service organizations.
