The Arts Wall - Written and arranged by Aaron Dworkin. "Poema III" composed by Marlos Nobre
Aaron Dworkin, keynote speaker for this past year's Mountain West Arts Conference, recently sent me a message that I would like to share with you. 
"Sphinx Special Artistic Advisor Yo-Yo Ma, pianist Lara Downes and I came together recently at Michigan to celebrate the power and purpose of the arts in America. We will be sharing this with the general public, but given the message of the piece regarding the importance of the arts, I thought I would personally send this to you in the event that you may want to share the video directly with your constituents, as well.  It can be accessed on Vimeo for free and without ads at:"

Funding for Performing Artists - Professional Development / Career Advancement

The Performing Arts Program is happy to announce a new funding source for Utah performing artists.

This opportunity provides funding to support the professional development and career advancement of performing artists.

Carnegie Hall, Manhattan Competition
Deadline June 10, 2017

The aim of this competition is to find performers with a strong artistic personality and stage presence. The emphasis is therefore not on the purely technical aspect of the performance, but also on the artistic charisma of the performer.

​In order to avoid travel expenses, the "Second Manhattan International Music Competition" has been designed so that musicians can show all their potential through video recordings (no traveling required). In addition, they are asked to provide the repertoire they would play at Carnegie Hall or record for the CD release: a free recital that reflects their personality.

​The Second edition of the Manhattan International Music Competition is open to a wide range of performers and is divided into three groups: pianists, singers and string performers. The age limit is 35.

​Traveling, live auditions and reference letters are not required… Only the courage to demonstrate through some videos that the candidate possesses the adequate profile for an international career in this changing but passionately musical world.

Now Playing Utah's mission is to increase awareness about arts & cultural opportunities by providing a comprehensive events resource.

NPU offers ideas of things to see and do throughout the state. Here you will find a comprehensive statewide calendar of events that allows you to search by date, location, category, venue, artist and more. NPU also provides easy access to dates, times, maps and direct links for purchasing tickets.

Be sure to list your events - it's free!
