“Introducing Tomorrow’s Artists Today” is the tag line for the LLC ‘Works of Art’. A joint company held by both Wayne and Betz Smisek and CSC Founding CEO, Linda Weise.
The idea is to join forces with Sam and Kathy Guadagnoli in producing events, performances and productions at the Mezzanine that will still ultimately serve to entertain folks downtown as well as provide a revenue stream for the programs at the Colorado Springs Conservatory. The LLC is the vehicle in which to do so in a way that affords clarity.
“My hope is that we are still able to provide a percentage of ticket revenue generated that will benefit the Conservatory programs”, says Weise. The LLC was created years ago by Smisek, who saw this opportunity as a way to broaden his ability to support art to include more performance art while continuing to support the Conservatory as well as those who are seeking things to do in downtown, Colorado Springs.
Kathy and Sam Guadagnoli will continue to produce those events such as Dueling Pianos, Phat Horn Doctors, Suga Bear and the Showtime Band and Burlesque with Peaks and Pasties. The Jazz and Classical Series as well as the various productions will be produced by the team at ‘Works of Art’.
