VCS Community Ed Dance Recital
Saturday, May 7, 2016. Recital performances at 10am & 1pm.
Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival Young Artist Award Winner Daniel Hsu
The 2016 Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival returns to Vicksburg! Every two years, The Gilmore announces two new young artists of exceptional talent and presents them with the Gilmore Young Artist Award. The award comes after an extended period of critique by a six-member panel… while the artists in question have no clue they’re being judged. The New York Times recently called The Gilmore’s selection process “the music world’s version of the MacArthur Foundation’s ‘genius’ grants: a prestigious prize that cannot be applied for or sought.”
A San Francisco Bay Area native, 18-year-old Daniel Hsu will perform his debut recital as a 2016 Gilmore Young Artist. Daniel currently attends the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia.
Sunday, May 8, 2016 - 3pm.

About the Vicksburg Performing Arts Center
Located at 501 East Highway Street, the Vicksburg Performing Arts Center opened its doors in 1994 to support arts-in-education programs, offering many programs designed to inspire young people through the arts, enhancing their studies and enriching their lives well into the future.
The Performing Arts Center soon became one of Southwest Michigan's premier entertainment venues and the artistic home to South Kalamazoo County's performing arts organizations: Vicksburg Rotary Club, The Vicksburg Community Association and the South County Players.
The Vicksburg Performing Art Center features a large modern stage with handicap access, orchestra pit, grand piano, make-up room, green room, wardrobe and dressing rooms and a convenient cargo loading area. Equipped with state-of-the-art lighting, sound, rigging, and electrical supply systems, the venue has been host to a wide array of entertainers from television and film stars John Astin, Dick Van Patten and Frank Gorshin to the world-renown Glenn Miller Orchestra. The Gilmore Keyboard Festival and WMU Children's Dance Theater routinely use our stage.
In addition to performance space, the Performing Arts Center Staff and volunteers offer support in technical theater to lessees, plus advice to community organizations interested in producing event such as concerts, theater performances, workshop services, recitals, corporate meeting and speakers.
The Performing Arts Center has 1011 fixed seats and 16 wheel chair spaces for total seating of 1027.
Volunteers give the valuable gift of their time and we welcome and appreciate all who contribute in this important way. From ushers to ticket office assistants, the volunteers are an integral part of the operation of the Performing Arts Center. Volunteering not only enhances PAC activities but also creates rewarding opportunities for social contact in an exciting atmosphere.
