On January 1, 2013, thanks to the generosity of Dr. William and Leah Baskin, Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center took possession of the First Presbyterian Church of Rockford, which has been renamed Mendelssohn Hall.
This milestone in the history of MPAC marks the beginning of an exciting journey to transform this century-old structure into an arts mecca for the entire community.
MPAC is currently accepting donations to our Capital Campaign to help us upgrade the space so it can best serve the local arts community. Exciting naming opportunities are available and most donations are eligible for historic tax credits.
