2nd Youth Arts Celebration is Saturday in New Haven

NEW HAVEN – The public is invited to come out and celebrate the creative power of young people on Saturday.

The Citywide Youth Coalition is having its second annual Youth Arts Celebration from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Neighborhood Music School, 100 Audubon St.

Performances will include an acoustic guitar solo, drum circle, rock and roll band, Peruvian folk dance, spoken-word poetry, classical music ensemble, jazz dance troupe, elementary school singers and hip hop.

“We are trying to develop in New Haven and the greater region this real clear understanding that there are amazing kids doing great things,” said Citywide Youth Coalition Director Rachel Heerema.

There is also a visual arts display featuring local students’ work at Koffee on Audubon. Those art pieces will be on display until the end of October.

Citywide Youth Coalition is a network of more than 475 organizations and individuals working together to build a community in which all youth can succeed.
