The Young Americans will be visiting Benjamin Logan again this year!! They were with us two years ago and it was a wonderful experience for everyone involved.
The Young Americans is dedicated to the promotion of understanding and goodwill among people throughout the world through music, dance, performance, academic education and cultural interaction among student members and their audiences.
The Young Americans are focused on providing music education and performance opportunities to young people around the world. The International Music Outreach Tours promote the importance of music education by bringing music workshops to K through 12th grade students around the world.
The Young American workshop aims to:
- Encourage music in the schools of our nation and around the world.
- Train young people in vocal techniques, dance, and comedy improvisation, to stage movement, sound, lighting, and more.
- Share insight and understanding of different cultures.
- Strengthen character & develop self-esteem, self-worth, and leadership
We roll into town with one of our intrepid, 45-member crews for a three-day signature workshop for an elementary, middle, or high school. Up to 400 students sign up to participate in a vibrant and exciting music intensive. In just three days, we turn a group of eager students into a show to remember, demonstrating to teachers, parents, school districts and communities the power of music education.
This year’s visit is scheduled for Sept. 25, 26 and 27th. The workshop is open to third graders through the senior class. The workshops will take place at Ben Logan High School. Registration forms can be obtained from Mrs. Christy Fout at the middle school and high school. Elementary students can get forms from Mr. Young.
