It’s time to turn down the Top 40 and listen to some decent music, Miami. Hasn’t that Leslie Grace “Be My Baby” cover made your ears bleed long enough? The National YoungArts Foundation is giving you the opportunity to support some talented youths untainted by excessive radio play.
YoungArts is dedicated to identifying and supporting the next generation of artists in literary, performing, visual, and design arts. The Miami campus inaugurates its 7th Floor lounge space, designed by world-renowned architect and YoungArts artistic adviser Frank Gehry. YoungArts is joined by Yellow Lounge, a traveling classics-meets-club environment that presents a new generation of artists tied to the classical tradition who break musical and cultural boundaries. Founded seven years ago in Berlin, Yellow Lounge fuses the greatest international performers with cutting-edge DJ and VJ sets in urban spaces.
Presented by public radio organization Classical South Florida, Yellow Lounge at YoungArts will feature international guitar sensation Milos Karadaglic. Karadaglic’s 2011 debut album topped classical music charts around the world and earned him Gramophone’s Young Artist of the Year Award. He will be joined by YoungArts alumni Andrea Jarrett (2009 YoungArts winner in music/violin and U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts) and Peter Eom (2013 YoungArts winner in music/cello and U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts). DJ Tribe will provide music between sets.
