Greetings from the Hammer Theatre!

The last few years have been extraordinary in demanding our patience, flexibilities, and our unrealized dreams. In December, 2021, we appealed to this group of inaugural Hammer Programming Fund donors, and we are proud to acknowledge them here.

Their contributions have helped us present our debut of the Sunset Series, roof-top performances featuring various musical artists and ensembles, experienced from the Hammer Terrace while watching the summer sunset over Downtown San José.

As you probably know, contributions assist us in fulfilling our mission of bringing high-quality programming to the Bay Area and greater Silicon Valley; will you consider a gift as well? You can do so by clicking the button below.

Hoping to see you at the Hammer this year.
