Turn your sound on to enjoy "Juliette" by DJ Stretchman, a LiveSET alum!
Your gift to Young Audiences helps bring artful JOY to 50,000+ students in our region this year! Students like Riley, who apprenticed with professional sound engineers to explore their interest and break into a male-dominated industry; and Kyle, who learned how listening and respect are key when playing Taiko drums in an ensemble of his peers. The work Young Audiences fosters with professional development and by connecting local artists with local students drives curiosity and creativity to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. Please thoughtfully consider this opportunity to join in this important work making arts opportunities abundantly accessible in our region.
