Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs has awarded a grant of $18,000 in support of BackStage Pass from WKAR. Will you add your support here?

If you've seen just one episode of BackStage Pass on WKAR-TV, you've seen a WKAR original that takes you behind the scenes to learn about the creative process; that lets you experience the excitement and energy of Michigan's open-air music festivals from the comfort of your home.

If you're a longtime fan, you'll be excited to know that BackStage Pass returns April 22 with brand-new episodes and support from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA).

The $18,000 award comes with a challenge to match the MCACA funds with individual contributions.  Will you add your support?

MCACA selected the series for the award from more than 550 applicants. The council recognizes what you already know: BackStage Pass helps open up the arts to anyone, and is worthy of private and public support.

Thank you for your support of WKAR original programs for mid-Michigan!

The SEVENTH season of the award-winning series featuring music MADE IN MICHIGAN begins with Toronzo Cannon, Friday, April 22 at 11 and 11:30pm!
