    “Bank of America believes in the power of the arts and we recognize that now, more than ever, we could all use the enrichment that the arts can provide. Today, art is demonstrating its resiliency. Theatre companies are adapting to new ways of sharing their performances including providing audio and digital opportunities, and because of that, new audiences are gaining perspective on how the arts inform, unite and help promote cultural understanding. We’re pleased to support the world class Goodman Theatre and this year’s virtual presentation of their classic holiday tradition of A Christmas Carol.
