Since our doors first opened in 2010, the Hylton Performing Arts Center has celebrated, supported, and enriched the lives of the artists and arts enthusiasts of our community. Hundreds of thousands of people have been to the Hylton Center for a rehearsal, for a performance, for a class, for a community event. From student to artist, from patron to Patriot, the Hylton Center serves the entire breadth of our diverse region.

Our Vision Statement

The Hylton Performing Arts Center will be the creative commons of a vibrant region, inspiring the community to express its voice by participating in the Center’s work as artists, audiences and lifelong learners.

The Hylton Center serves this region in ways that our founders never could have imagined, directed by the needs of this evolving and expanding community. Our Vision Statement articulates what the Hylton Center can be for this region, but to achieve that vision we must continue to grow—both physically, through the Education and Rehearsal Wing, and fiscally, through the Endowment—which will ensure artistic excellence in the performances and programs that the Hylton Center offers.

We invite you to envision the future of the Hylton Center with us. Perhaps you will take a class or participate in a workshop in one of the many inspiring spaces in the new wing. Perhaps you will attend a performance by George Mason University’s nationally renowned Opera Program or even the internationally famous violinist Joshua Bell. One thing can be certain—with your support, the Hylton Center will soar to new heights of community inclusion and artistic achievement. We are asking you to help take us farther, and faster, than ever before.
