About the Pop Up Performance Series
RAF envisions creating a new, state-of-the-art and regionally distinct performance space. Having completed a feasibility study in 2019, RAF understands how a new performance space for music, theatre, and dance—a place where our community gathers to enjoy a favorite band or ballet production, a destination for entertainment, inspiration, and laughter, and to present fresh opportunities to showcase emerging talent and bring world-class performances—will expand and enhance Roswell’s arts and culture scene.
The Pop-Up Performance Series presents curated performing arts experiences to engage audiences and strengthen community support for development of the new facility.
Tickets sold for performances benefit the Roswell Arts Fund and its mission of bringing world-class arts opportunities to Roswell and greater north metropolitan Atlanta.
The inaugural season of the Pop Up Performance Series began with a standing room only performance featuring Ed Roland at the Roswell Historic Cottage. Unfortunately, shortly before the second scheduled concert the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions forced RAF to postpone all upcoming events.
In an attempt to provide entertainment and keep the series alive we held our first FB Live concert featuring Enrique Che of Making Movies in May and over 2,100 virtual patrons tuned in to enjoy the performance.
Working with From the Earth Brewing Company, we reimagined how to create safe and fun community events for artists and audiences. Transforming outdoor parking lots into performance areas, incorporating physical distancing and requiring face masks allowed us to continue the series and produce concerts featuring world-class performances.
