Spring is in the air at YoungArts with many activities blooming!
This year’s 45 Gold and Silver Award winners will soon gather in New York City for a week of intense training workshops, master classes and an interdisciplinary performance celebrating their achievements. 'In the Studio' Week begins April 17 with a benefit performance on April 22. This year, we are pleased to feature esteemed Master Teachers including Melissa Manchester, Gregory Mosher and Mathew Rushing. See the links below for footage from last year’s 'In the Studio' celebration.
The new YoungArts Miami regional program gets underway with one full day of the YoungArts experience for South Florida’s winners on Lincoln Road, South Beach on March 21 and monthly vignette performances at the Bass Museum throughout the spring season.
Most importantly, Monday marks the opening of the early registration period for YoungArts Week 2011. 17 and 18 year old artists across America will begin to apply for the experience of a lifetime. Here are some quotes from the 2010 winners.
“When you said it would change our lives I laughed. Thanks for proving me wrong. I'm gonna miss every bit of YoungArts Week.” Matt Wright, New York, NY, 2010 YoungArts Winner, Music
“This week has given me more than anything else could: hope. Before this week, I thought I had no hope of ever making a living with my art, or even being able to compete in the world. But now, after YoungArts, I realize that there are people out there who truly believe in me, and I could not be more grateful.”
Alexander Vollmer, Marietta, Georgia, 2010 YoungArts Winner, Voice
The application fee for early registration is only $25 and the timing couldn’t be better. GlobalGiving has offered to match every donation that comes in on Tuesday, March 16 with a 30% bonus. This means that your $20 gift can sponsor an application fee for one of the young aspiring artists who apply to our program. Application fees increase to $35 on June 1 and the registration period is open until October 15.
Bonuses are for gifts up to $1,000 per donation. Additionally, there will be a $1,000 prize for the project that raises the most on Tuesday.
