Just as there have been thousands of performances at Overture Center in its first decade, patrons and performers have experienced thousands of memorable moments at the venue.

For me, one memorable moment was the grand opening of the building in September 2004. I attended the open house with my son, who was 2 at the time. We were amazed by the architecture, the array of free performances and the artistic possibilities inherent in the structure.
