Decentralized Arts Funding Program
Young Audiences Charter School is excited to announce our “Monthly Performance Concert Series” supported by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council as administered by the the Arts Council New Orleans.
In addition to being a major component of our curriculum, artistic performances are central to school culture. Decentralized Arts Funding has allowed YACS to offer a comprehensive performance series featuring our region’s most talented performing artists and ensembles during the 2016-17 school year. Performances were selected to complement existing school events, meet specific curriculum standards, and address academic content in subject areas such as math, science, language arts, and social studies. Featured artists include: Adella Adella the Story Teller, Soul Heirs Jazz Band, Panorama Jazz Band, Kokemnka, Iviore Spectacle, Javier Juarez, Donald Lewis, Voices of the Big Easy, Kumbuka, and Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Review.
