City of New Orleans recognizes Young Audiences for 50 years of commitment to the arts

Published: March 16, 2012

The City of New Orleans recognized Young Audiences of Louisiana’s 50 years of  commitment to the arts with a proclamation on March 1, at the request of District "C" Councilmember Gisleson Palmer.
As part of the proclamation ceremony, students in the Young Audiences afterschool program at Joseph A. Craig appeared before the Council to receive council recognition and put on a special African dance and drumming performance.
"I am enormously proud of the work that Young Audiences does for the youth of New Orleans,” Palmer said. “This organization facilitates learning for children in a variety of ways and assists teachers in connecting student curriculums in an artistic way.”
Young Audiences of Louisiana is a leading provider of arts education programs throughout the state. Over 2,000 students participate in Young Audiences after school programs throughout the city and Young Audiences performers routinely perform at schools, libraries and other events.
“My hope is that the Young Audiences partnership with our schools continues and is enhanced in the years to come," Palmer said.
