Lecture Demonstrations

Inspiring You to Delve Deeply Into the Performing Arts

The Lecture Demonstration Series, inspired by Leonard Bernstein’s “Young People’s Concerts” with the New York Philharmonic provides education for the public of all ages, through a mentoring collaboration with local professional and aspiring/emerging performing artists, in an entertaining Musical Theatre Dance context. We expose the audience to the process of creating Musical Dance Theatre and how cooperation between different arts and artists helps build stronger artistic work and a stronger community; and will emphasize the values of respect, curiosity, and tolerance within our multicultural community.

Performance, Dissection, & Illumination

Musical numbers are performed, dissected, and illuminated. We explore various aspects of the number in terms of technique, composition, dramatic intent & cultural references.

Live Audience Feedback

The lecture demonstrations provide an opportunity for different creative artists to share their work in a theatrically curated live setting in front of a live audience. The live audience feedback that this program provides is invaluable to a choreographer, director, composer, or performer. The program also provides education for the audience in a “behind the scenes look” at the creative process and inspires audience members to study or at least delve more deeply into the performing arts.
