The National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts), a non-profit organization that recognizes and supports the nation’s most talented budding professionals in the visual, literary, and performing arts, today announced its partnership with Universal Music Classics and Classical South Florida to launch Yellow Lounge at YoungArts. Originally born out of the Berlin/European club scene, “Yellow Lounge” is a classics-meets-club environment; its mission to present a new generation of vibrant artists tied to the classical tradition who break musical and cultural boundaries, in visually innovative and alternative spaces. Part of Universal Music Classics’ North American debut of Yellow Lounge, Yellow Lounge at YoungArts will be presented on Friday, November 22 at 8:00 pm at the new YoungArts campus in Miami. General admission tickets will be available at youngarts.org/yellow-lounge for $20, student tickets are $10.
With sold-out events already under its belt all over the world including London, Amsterdam, Vienna and Seoul, Yellow Lounge now kicks off in major cities across America in November in Miami, as well as Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago. This innovative event in Miami will feature rising classical guitar star Miloš Karadaglić as well as YoungArts alumni Andrea Jarrett (2009 YoungArts Winner in Music/Violin and U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts) and Peter Eom (2013 YoungArts Winner in Music/Cello and U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts). The event will be emceed by Julie Amacher, host of American Public Media’s “New Classical Tracks”.
“Yellow Lounge at YoungArts is the first of many public programs we will launch over the next years to enliven our campus, support emerging artists and introduce the public to the next generation of American artists,” stated Paul T. Lehr, President and CEO of YoungArts. “By presenting programs that range from classical and jazz concerts to dance and theater performances, film screenings, spoken word events and art exhibitions, we hope to become a beacon for all of the disciplines we support.”
