About Youth Arts Coalition

The Coalition believes that every student’s education should include experiences in the Arts. Whether the student in exposed to the different arts, spends time to become proficient in an art or is dedicated to reach mastery in an art form, the content will train the student to be a creative, critical thinking problem solver. Beyond the educational benefits, the Arts are a communication tools that connects people and communities. Currently the Coalition is focusing on music, but is looking to include other performing, visual and literary arts in the future. Planned events include opportunities for solos and small ensemble to receive clinics and adjudication at Solo & Ensemble Festival in March. Our next Solo & ensemble Festival will be in March, 2017.
