Join ARTS San Antonio’s crowdfunding campaign to send local students to an exciting live performance of Fiesta Navidad! And to say thank you - all gifts of $45 or more will be our guests at a public performance on December 15th or 16th!
As part of ARTS San Antonio’s multi-faceted arts-education initiative, ARTSTEACH, more than 2,000 local students and chaperones will be inspired by dance and music when they attend a live professional performance of Fiesta Navidad on Friday, December 15, 2017 at the Lila Cockrell Theatre. This hour-long performance draws on the rich artistic variety of Mexico's different regions to showcase the magic of music and dance of the holiday season. The performance is provided at no cost to the students thanks to wonderful supporters like you!
Many of these students attend Title I schools and this will be their first time experiencing a live artistic performance in a professional venue. Your support of this campaign allows students to enjoy the beauty and excitement of the two-time GRAMMY Award-winning Mariachi Divas and the internationally recognized Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Carlos Moreno.
To build the workforce of tomorrow, let’s invest in arts education for our youth TODAY! Studies show that early arts engagement for students from low socio-economic backgrounds significantly increases their likelihood of reaching their potential and boosts their academic achievement. Engaging young people from all backgrounds in the arts is an investment in their future that builds a strong community for all.
