Fly Away with YA

Thank you for making Fly Away with YA a success!

But, more importantly, thank you for contributing to the arts education for over 72,000 students! Whether you were the winning bidder on a prized silent auction item, or raising your paddle during the special appeal, you are helping students engage in their education, experience joy during the school day, and building the next generation of creative and compassionate young people. 

We were honored to present the Sunburst Award to arts-in-education champion and community leader Jan Robertson for her 20 years of board service. Click here to read the lyrics to “Thank you, Jan” a song written by Young Audiences teaching artist Mo Phillips.

AU and the Camas High School Choir ignited the night with their performance of a choral piece composed during a yearlong Young Audiences project where students learned about composition and other aspects of the music business. Guests were also entertained with an exciting Ghanaian drumming and dance performance by the Obo Addy Legacy Project. The evening ended with dessert & dancing to the tunes curated by DJ brokenwindow and a special appearance of the DOJUMP dog.
