I just love La Grua!!  It's a wonderful, local organization that provides diversified and splendid high quality events.  I specifically enjoy the Music Matters series, art exhibitions and lectures. All the events are well organized and provided to public free of charge.  It just can't get better than this!!

The Center's attention to detail and obvious appreciation of artwork make exhibiting an easy and enjoyable experience. I especially appreciate the time and effort put into hanging the art pieces. The La Grua Center offers an intimate atmosphere of modest elegance and sophistication. Thank you for offering this delightful venue.

We are so very fortunate at Mystic Middle School to have the opportunity to have two of our select ensembles, jazz band and select singers perform in this beautiful hall.  The intimate setting, wonderful acoustics,  beautiful art adorning the walls, the set-up/break-down by all participants and of course the quality of well diverse performers makes this a memorable experience.  Our students are so honored and proud to perform at the La Grua Center, a special place in Stonington.

La Grua Center is the jewel box of the Borough.  Music, visual arts, dance, health, wellness, and education are just some of the jewels within.  It’s a wonderful and enriching resource for all.

I joined the La Grua Center as a volunteer a couple of years ago.  I could never have anticipated  the impact this wonderful facility would have on the Boro and surrounding areas. To have access to world class musicians, art exhibits, interesting speakers as well as all of the other events and programs, is such a gift to our community.  We are so fortunate and I am thrilled to be a part of it!

We are so lucky to have this jewel in our community.  While my husband and I love going to the evening concerts and lectures, our kids eagerly anticipate the summer art workshops!  These workshops--where local artists volunteer their time and talents to teach the kids--is such a fun time for all.  The La Grua programming is so rich, the staff so warm, and the space so welcoming!

As a supporter of the La Grua Center, I can't think of a better resource that provides the Stonington community a wide variety of intellectual, musical, and artistic events. Additionally, the use of the center for nutrition, dancing, exercise and yoga classes is yet another way to strengthen the community while improving its members health and welfare. Though we are not year round residents of Stonington, my husband and I have taken advantage of  the many exceptional talks and musical events along with the yoga classes.
