Piedmont’s middle and high schoolers are taking to the stage in the first ever “Piedmont’s Got Talent” show on Saturday, March 16 at 4:30 p.m. at the Veterans’ Hall, followed by the opening of The Big Art Show at the Piedmont Center for the Arts at 6 p.m.
Organized by the Piedmont Arts Fund, these two events serve as the main fundraiser for the performing and visual arts in Piedmont schools. “We invite you to come support our talented students and help support the integration and specialties of music, dance, ceramics, art, and theater to develop a generation of creative problem solvers.”
The talent show will include middle and high school performances in dance, film, voice, and instrumental music, including bands. Judges for the show are Jonathan Ring of the San Francisco Symphony, local actor Emily Keyishian, and KTVU meteorologist Rosemary Orozco. And yes, there are prizes: The winners will get a private Pixar tour for 8, and $200 or $100 Mulberry’s gift cards. All participants will receive a $10 Mulberry’s Market gift card.
The Big Art Show will will feature community artists, including students. Half the proceeds from the Big Art Show go to the Piedmont Arts Fund and the other half goes to the artist.
Tickets for the event are $25 per person, $10 for students at the door. Purchase tickets to Piedmont’s Got Talent here. Ticket prices include the wine and cheese reception following the performance. The Big Art Show is free to attend and gallery hours continue through March 30.
