From the President



Congrats to the WXXI production team on bringing home a New York Emmy!

I am proud to share that WXXI recently received a New York State Emmy® Award for its documentary PRELUDE / The Legacy of Garth Fagan Dance at the 66th Annual New York Emmy® Awards gala in New York City.

Winning in the “Documentary Cultural” category, the hour-long documentary takes viewers on a journey through the twists and turns of Tony Award-winning choreographer Garth Fagan’s storied, collaborative, and prolific career. A big shout out to executive producer Erin McCormack, producer Katie Epner, and director of photography Jason Milton for their great work!

PRELUDE was made possible with support provided by Nocon and Associates, A Private Wealth Advisory Practice of Ameriprise Financial Services, LLC; Jacqueline Davis; Gouvernet Arts Fund at the Community Foundation; and Jane K. and Robert C. Stevens Fund for New Programming.
