Great Performances enhances life's celebrations with delicious food, artful party design, and professional service. Starting from simple roots in 1979 as a waitress service for women in the arts, Great Performances now has the privilege to work with clients in the corporate, nonprofit, and social worlds.
Great Performances' mission is collaborative commitment to service, innovation, and quality. These principles are integrated into all aspects of event planning work, including delicious food, striking design and attentive event planners and service.
Great Performances is the first catering company in the nation to own and operate a certified organic farm. Located on 60 acres in Kinderhook, N.Y., Katchkie Farm represents a commitment to celebrating local flavors and celebrating good earth practices.
"What words can possibly describe the job your team did at our benefit dinner? Magnificent? Flawless? Scrumptious? Maybe the best way to say it is this: Of the many wonderful elements of our memorable event, Great Performances was the best." --Beth N.
