Vienna Boys Choir
Virginia Arts Festival – Beloved for its pure, heavenly sound, this internationally revered choir can trace its history as far back as the 13th century, and despite the youth of its singers, represents an art form steeped in tradition and history. Today, boys audition for the choir from around the world; many of them have fathers or even grandfathers who were choir members. The full choir is divided into four equally gifted touring groups, each led by its own conductor and accompanied by tutors. The group who will be presented by the Virginia Arts Festival includes boys from Austria, Cambodia, China, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and the Philippines. They will be led by their spirited Italian choirmaster Manolo Cagnin, who has traveled with the group throughout Europe, North and South America, and Asia. He chooses repertoire to match the boys’ voices and personalities—including, in the case of these December performances, some of the best-loved holiday music ever written. Order your tickets early, as previous Virginia Arts Festival performances of the Vienna Boys Choir have sold out!

A Space Of Her Own - Artist Reception
Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center – A Space of Her Own is an effort to bring to the forefront the need for women’s representation in art and society. The relevance of women’s contributions to history should be undisputed, but their narratives as told by women themselves are largely absent from our societal fabric. The purpose of this initiative is to create more collaborative artistic spaces that are accessible to everyone, especially women, while in turn acting as homage to women artists from previous generations. Each artist listed on this site has chosen a trailblazing female artist of a previous generation to act as their muse for a new piece that they have created. They will present their muse in a multi-sensory artist reception on January 6th in the Newport News Community Gallery. The exhibit itself will be displayed from January 6-27, 2018.
