“Rising Stars” Shine in New World School Of The Arts’ Spectacular Visual Arts & Performance Showcase

March 17!

Rising Stars Showcase, a professionally staged, energy packed, one-of-a-kind performance, presents the extraordinary talent of high school and college students from New World School of the Arts, Florida’s premier arts institution. The showcase begins at the New World Gallery with a juried visual arts exhibition featuring impressive student artworks. The show, as diverse as the school population, includes painting, drawing, design, sculpture, digital media and installations. The evening continues just a few blocks away at the historic Gusman Center for the Performing Arts with a pre-performance VIP Reception to welcome guests to this artistic landmark. Following the reception, the performance showcases excerpts from works performed by the high school and the college students during the school year.

Among the works to be presented by the NWSA Theater division is the iconic scene ‘Stella’ from A Streetcar Named Desire, a lively gospel number from the musical The Children of Eden, and “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” from Evita. The Dance division will offer excerpts from Mass and Kindapalooza, among other works. The music division will present You Are the Music, performed by the NWSA choir, Wine-Dark Sea, performed by the NWSA Wind Ensemble, as well as the NWSA Jazz Ensemble and NWSA Symphony Orchestra, performing Gioachino Rossini’s Overture to The Barber of Seville.

Also during the event, The NWSA 2015 Rising Stars Alumnus Award will be presented to actress Katie Finneran. Presented each year to a high school or college graduate from New World School of the Arts, who is successfully contributing to his or her art form, this prestigious award recognizes the alum’s artistic achievements, as well as her growth and development as an artist.
