Tracy Walton joins Performance Hub

Rock veteran Tracy Walton has officially joined the board of directors of Performance HUB USA Education Foundation, Inc. the exciting new non-profit in downtown Torrington!

PERFORMANCE HUB, located at 45 Main Street, seeks to connect performers and venues together and serve as a linchpin to cultural events in the northwest corner, especially within the Torrington community. In its new location across from the Five Points Gallery in the heart of downtown Torrington, Performance Hub will feature their highly regarded educational opportunities but will also provide concerts, open mic nights, and other showcase events for local performers. 

Tracy Walton has been a contributor and teacher at many of the Performance Hub educational opportunities and now his role will expand within the organization.  On the Board of Directors, Walton joins Brett Wald who serves as President, Siana Stone who serves Treasurer, Kris Roberts who serves as Director of Operations, and Jay Roberts who serves as Talent/Project Director.  

Tracy Walton is looking forward to this new role and the opportunities the Hub can provide to the community.  "The Hub's mission of community outreach has always excited me," says Walton. "I have always felt that it's important for musicians to give back and help hand down the tradition of music that was passed down to us."

Co-founder Kris Roberts is excited to have Walton on board. "(Walton) brings so much to the table in terms of his own experience in the music industry as well as his unparalleled talent as an educator, musician, and producer. We are very fortunate to have him!"

Now that Performance Hub has received its official non profit status, the team can start fundraising and grant writing to further their various educational programs and their status has already begun to attract exceptional entertainment professionals like Tracy Walton.  Performance Hub is accepting donations (monetary donations and equipment) and donations are tax deductible so you can contribute to this exciting new organization.
