For the
fifteenth consecutive year, Adelphi University will host Arts Day. At
the annual fall arts conference, scheduled on October 16, 2012, talented performing
arts high school juniors and seniors participate in intensive workshops in
dance, music and theatre at our magnificent 53,000-square-foot Performing Arts
Center (AUPAC), 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY.  The conference will take place from 8:45 a.m.
to 1:45 p.m.  The Arts Day featured
artist will be two-time Tony Award winner Christine Ebersole. For the second
time, Adelphi was awarded a prestigious grant from the National Endowment for
the Arts (NEA) in support of this initiative to help bring the arts to a wider
community.

 

During the full day
conference, students will have the opportunity to gain valuable professional
experience and learn from experienced Adelphi performing arts faculty through diverse
hands-on workshops in areas of the craft, discussion and practical experience.
Workshops include training in acting, dance, technical theater and music. Teaching
artist Jeremy Williams will return to deliver two workshops specific for high
school teachers in the arts. Founding director of Convergence Theatre
Collective, Williams has led numerous arts organizations in artistic, educational,
social media, promotions and revenue/funding projects. William’s workshops will
include topics on "Risk and Innovation in the Classroom" and
"Evaluating the Creative Process" Always a popular event in the fall,
Arts Day attracts more than a total of 200 students and teachers in nearly 20
school districts.

 

After a day of intensive
workshops, the event will culminate with a question and answer session open to
students by two-time Tony Award winner Christine Ebersole. Accomplished in the
world of television, screen and stage, Ebersole has been an actress for more
than two decades. She has appeared in Oklahoma!,
Camelot, Blithe Spirit, Dinner at
Eight
, and the revival of 42nd
Street
for which she won the Tony award. She also took home the Tony for
originating the legendary dual role performance in Grey Gardens. She will
return to the AUPAC on March 22, 2013 with Edward Hibbert in a cabaret of Noel
Coward songs, “Love Noel, The Letters & Songs of Noel Coward” on the
Concert Hall stage. Tickets for this cabaret are now available at The Lucia and
Steven N. Fischer Box Office at (516) 877-4000 or online at aupac.adelphi.edu.
