The West Kortright Centre will hold auditions for Opening Acts: Young Artists Showcase 2018 starting at 2:00 PM on Sunday, May 20. Now in its 27th year, the Young Artists Showcase project encourages the artistic development of future generations. Children and young adults ages 10-21 who attend schools or whose primary residences are in Delaware, Otsego, Chenango, and Schoharie counties are invited to audition for the opportunity to perform for five minutes prior to scheduled concerts by world-class musicians from around the globe.

Auditions will be considered in any of the following categories: dramatic scenes, readings of original work, and vocal and instrumental music, including blues, country, classical, hip hop, contemporary, jazz, folk and operetta. This year’s young artists will be chosen by a jury of professional musicians including vocalist Johana Arnold, classical guitarist Dennis Turechek, and music educator Anaar Desai-Stephens.

Participants of this well-loved program gain valuable performance experience and credentials for their résumés. Anyone interested in auditioning is asked to call or e-mail in advance to confirm their participation and what they will perform. Contact The West Kortright Centre at (607) 278-5454 or e-mail for more information.
