Hop Membership Dartmouth Idol Reception

Become a Member

We're living in extraordinary times, but the Hop's mission hasn't changed. We have expanded our efforts to support artists, inspire students, and bring the arts to your living room. And Hop Members make it happen. So, thank you.

Join or Renew

While we aren't able to enjoy the vitality of live performances together, we have created a virtual stage called Hop@Home. Because of Member support, we were able to present more than 30 free, online events this spring. Hop@Home events have attracted more than 15,000 views, and we have kicked off our summer season with a new slate of artsy adventures and member opportunities.

Meanwhile, we are busy making plans to bring you the diverse, impactful performances the Hop is known for in a safe and comfortable way. You can look forward to hearing about next year's programming later in the summer. As usual, Hop members will enjoy special access and exclusive experiences.

Member contributions help the Hop brings the arts into area classrooms and communities, providing unforgettable and often free or subsidized opportunities for students and community members to learn from the diverse artists the Hop presents. This work is even more important now, and we are creating new partnerships and resources for educators to keep arts free and integral.

From our Members

We feel grateful to have a world-class facility like the Hopkins Center in our backyard, and like to support its mission to provide the community with such wonderful arts presentations. We are particularly grateful for the Hop’s family performances so that local children are exposed to the arts at such an early age. Melissa Roth and Dan Richards, Advocates
