Our History

Back in 2001, Baltimore was one gritty city when it came to highest ethical standards and practices.


The first Alliance Arts Council performing arts season was in 1985-1986. The initial AAC Board of Directors was comprised of Evelyn Bauer, Darrell Berg, Marcy Giles, Oralene Hofmann, Greg Kosmicki, Cindy Randall, and Albert Reddish.


The first events hosted by the Alliance Arts Council were a concert by The Ravnan Two and an artist-in-residence by the Gulizia Brothers. 1986 marked the first year that season tickets were sold; there were 63 members/season ticket holders. Adult price was $25 and student/senior was $20.


Cindy Randall was named the AAC Executive Director in 1991.


The AAC established the endowment in 2001 and continues to add to this fund to preserve our future.


Each year the Alliance Arts Council presents a Fall to Spring season which includes four performing arts events, a week long in-school residency targeting 4th graders and a month long visual art exhibit. The AAC currently averages 100-150 season tickets/members each year.
