Our Team

The Tamaqua Community Arts Center relies on volunteers for everything from daily office help to organizing, preparations and program logistics.  With a small staff, it truly is this team of dedicated individuals who make us unique, keep many programs low cost and allow us to offer a tremendous amount of events every week.

Drew Bonner
Arts & Events Coordinator

Drew is a Tamaqua native and a 2010 graduate of Tamaqua High School.  He holds a Bachelors in Music from Penn State and a Masters from the University of Texas.  His goal is to ignite passion in young musicians and inspire anyone to be creative. He is excited to be joining the Tamaqua Community Arts Center family as he has  been an admirer of the arts center from afar since its inception. He feels, coming home to work for his home town community is a real honor. He aims to continue the success of the arts center while adding in his own ideas to foster increased creativity across the community. In his spare time he  is a composer, arranger, performer, teacher, and musical guru. He also enjoys grilling, petting dogs, and working as a freelance musician.

Emily Comensky
Special Events Coordinator

Emily is our Special Events Coordinator. She has a background in Hospitality Management and enjoys doing all of the “behind the scenes” work of an event or art show.  She is often times helping her team make sure things are organized and running smoothly while planning and prepping for our next event! Emily can be found in the box office selling tickets on the night of an event or working directly with artists and musicians.

Kyle Whitley
Marketing Specialist

Kyle has been a volunteer with the Arts Center for many years and was a co-organizer of the Tamaqua Has Heart Project.  He possesses a natural ability to identify where, how and when we need to market ourselves.  Ever look at one of our flyers, brochures or pamphlets? They are all Kyle created and or inspired.  He has vast knowledge of social media and can still be found volunteering his time in The Stitch sound booth.  Have ideas on what we can do better – share them, Kyle wants to hear from you.
