Local Music Showcase and Art Market

Save the date!!

Infinity Visual and Performing Arts is excited to announce
Local Music Showcase and Art Market
Saturday, September 11, 2021
12pm-8pm
Basil and Bones (2061 Foote Ave, Jamestown).

 

Local Music Showcase and Infinity’s Annual Art Market are two of the Infinity’s biggest annual fundraisers. Both events were cancelled in 2020, but with some creative problem-solving the Infinity Team is thrilled to have found a new, fun way to bring both events back to our community in 2021.

Dubbed as, “The Night Music Reigns”, Infinity’s Local Music Showcase traditionally takes place throughout multiple venues in Downtown Jamestown and features more than 40 local musical acts. Infinity’s Annual Art Market features more than 20 local artist and crafting vendors.

This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, Infinity is combining the two events into an outdoor, single-location fundraising event that will feature Basil & Bones’ food, live music, art and craft vendors, performance artists, live Infinity and Pearl City Clay House classes for community members, and other family-friendly activities.

Follow Infinity on Facebook for more announcements about Infinity’s Local Music Showcase and Art Market Event, or visit www.infinityperformingarts.org/lms-am

All funds raised from Infinity’s Local Music Showcase and Art Market will directly support music and arts education for area young people at the Infinity Center through private lessons, group classes, active learning experiences, ensembles, and performance opportunities.

Performance!
While we will not be able to have Café Shows, Summer Camps, or our Spring Showcase this year, we have a very creative team and they have been offering virtual talent-showcasing opportunities for Infinity students.

To celebrate Infinity’s 22nd year of service to Chautauqua County, we are preparing to raise $1,000 to support group classes, performing ensembles, and workshops for more Infinity Students! These experiences are included in each students’ membership, and provide additional opportunities for learning, mentoring, and creative growth.

Infinity has been serving young people in the Chautauqua County region for 22 years, and much of our success as an organization is thanks to a caring, encouraging community who supports the work that we are doing. We couldn’t do it without you!

As a non-profit organization, Infinity relies on grants and contributions to support our programming, including: private lessons, group classes, ensembles, equipment and instruments (and their maintenance and upkeep!), program supplies, and so much more.

Please consider kicking off your 2020 Giving Season by making a donation to Infinity’s #GivingTuesday initiative. Your tax-deductible donations helps ensure that our students can continue to, ” Explore! Experience! and Excel!” in the arts.

Together we make a difference!

If you will consider making a tax deductible donation, in any amount, you can change the life of a student right here in Chautauqua County! Arts Education makes a positive difference in the lives of our area youth!
