THE PALLADIUM GIVES SUPPORT TO LOCAL ARTISTS
The historic Palladium Theater is one of Tampa Bay’s best, most affordable venues for classical, jazz, blues, theatre, opera, Celtic, comedy, dance, educational, literary, community events, and more. The Palladium at St. Petersburg College has selected 11 Tampa Bay performers to be members of the initial Palladium Creative Class of 2021!
Each artist receives a stipend of $2,500 that will be used to create a new project for the Palladium.
Introducing the Palladium Creative Class of 2021 Members:
BEACON (Helen Hansen French & Lauren Ree Sloan) – Dance
Damon Fowler – Blues
Elizabeth Baker – New Music
James Suggs – Jazz
Jeremy Carter – Jazz
Jeremy Douglass of The Florida Bjorkestra - Pop
La Lucha (Mark Feinman, Alejandro Arenas and John O’Leary) – Jazz
Nate Najar – Jazz
“The Palladium is thrilled to be able to support these talented artists as they create new work. To be an arts town you must support your homegrown talent. This is one of the ways we can do that,” said Paul Wilborn, Palladium Executive Director.
In addition to receiving funding directly from the Palladium to produce new projects, these artists will also benefit from the recent investment the Palladium has made in their brand-new Palladium Live! streaming series. All Creative Class performances are being captured using new equipment the Palladium has invested in, including multiple, high-definition video cameras and professional sound equipment for them to be presented online through their streaming partner, Mandolin.
Shows can be viewed on any computer or internet-capable device. Patrons can purchase tickets through the all-new Palladium website, mypalladium.org.
