During the summer of 2010, Discover Janesville took a vacation and instead, I worked with Teresa Nguyen and Judith Detert-Moriarty to produce United Arts Alliance: Summer Acoustic Series. Jointly with JATV we put together 3 concerts, featuring 8 local performers performing mostly acoustic, mostly original pieces. Designed to showcase local talent, these 3 tapings resulted in 8 shows, which air for 8 consecutive weeks on Saturday and Sunday at 10 am, 4 pm and 10 pm on JATV 98. Once the shows air on JATV, they are uploaded on YouTube and are available for viewing to those who do not have access to the station, which is currently available only to Charter subscribers.
To those who may not be familiar with the United Arts Alliance, the organization started in 1996 with the original goal of creating a performing arts center in Janesville. Clearly that mission was a success and these days UAA continues to work to bring local performers together in order to bring the arts to Rock county residents. Members of UAA include many local theaters and performing organizations, but we are also looking for more local individual artists to become members. Learn more about the United Arts Alliance and upcoming events at www.RockCountyArts.com
Important note: While the tapings were free to the invited audience, we did ask for donations, which went in their entirety to support United Arts Alliance Scholarship Fund. From this fund, UAA gives scholarships every year to local students. Donations for UAA Scholarship Fund are still being accepted. Please send your contributions to PO Box 8132, Janesville, WI 53547-8132. We appreciate your support.
