ARTS EXPRESS BELIEVES…
the arts can change lives and build a better community.
Through the Fine Arts Youth Academy, Behind the Scenes: Broadway and More and The Express Yourself Vocal Competition, Arts Express opens up the world of the arts to children.
Arts Express productions like A Hero’s Salute and Let Freedom Sing provides performance opportunities and family entertainment for the entire community.
A Memorial Day musical program recognizing the men and women of Southern Arizona who have made the ultimate sacrifice through selfless service as members of our Armed Forces, public safety and public service agencies. We will salute all those who have served or who are currently serving.
The Fine Arts Youth Academy (FAYA) is a summer arts immersion program that includes Broadway Kids (grades 4-6) and Junior Musical Theatre (grades 7-9). FAYA is provided annually in June for four 5/day weeks and culminates with musical theatre productions that are open to the public.
The goal of FAYA is to embrace, teach, cultivate and enrich young people in the community so that they might experience the power of the arts while learning to become productive citizens. For this work, ARTS EXPRESS is a 2011 recipient of the Child & Family Services Making Children’s Lives Better Award!
Let Freedom Sing is a community concert, presented annually on the 4th of July since 1985 in recognition of America’s independence. Over two hundred performers take center stage to celebrate our country’s freedom and lift up the continued hope for world peace.
