2013 Season - Capture the Culture: 4 Magical Mondays
Thank you for your interest in the 2013 Young People's Concert Series. This year's series is SOLD OUT! We are no longer accepting individual or large group reservations.
The Mann’s annual free Young People’s Concert Series plays a vital role in our community outreach, making high-quality and culturally diverse performing arts programs accessible to all children in an informal atmosphere. Performances by professional and emerging artists offer our young people a chance to experience and be inspired by the talents of others their age!
Celebrate the richness of African cultures with this dazzling show that blends acrobatics, dance and music by incredibly disciplined performers trained in Kenya and Tanzania.
Relish the fusion of classical ballet, modern dance, urban hip-hop moves and grooves in this exhilarating performance.
Showcasing a creative array of the region’s most talented young performers ages 8 – 21.
Join Kev Marcus and Wil B along with their DJ and percussionist as they create the perfect synergy between classical music and hip-hop. Black Violin is committed to teaching everyone that classical is cool.
Programs are 1 hour and 15 minutes long. Tickets are not required for these FREE concerts.
All seating is general admission and given on a first-come, first-served basis.
Reservations are required only for groups of 30 or more but recommended for small groups.

- A brief video sample of your work. Electronic submissions through YouTube are preferable.
- A single page personal bio and description of why you would like to be a part of the Mann’s Rising Stars of Tomorrow concert
Due to limited space in the annual concert, the Mann is unable to accept all submissions. Any students selected to perform will be contacted by the Mann and will receive additional information and a performance agreement prior to the performance.
Please submit all materials to Rhoda Blount, Vice President, Education & Community Engagement at email@example.com.
