Learn about the annual PerformHER performance that brings together musicians, singers, and dancers in a musical tribute to women composers and songwriters.
Each year, the East End Arts & Music School collaborates with the Peconic Ballet Theatre in a musical tribute to women composers and songwriters.
Both schools offer students the opportunity to unleash their creativity and explore their artistic side. Through playing a musical instrument, singing, or dancing, these young people reject the negative influences of popular culture and embrace the positivity of the performing arts.
PerformHER is a unique collaboration between talented young musicians, singers, and dancers on the East End who participate in classes at EEA School and the Peconic Ballet Theatre (PBT).
This event pairs an EEA student on piano, violin, cello, or vocals with a dancer from PBT, the music student selects a piece to represent a women composer, songwriter, or performer, and the dancer choreographs their dance to that selected song. This combination pushes each student to excel in their field, and both gain a beautiful performance experience.
EEA & PBT take this opportunity during Women’s History Month to honor those that did not give up – who pursued their talent and left behind a legacy to be enjoyed for years to come.
Last year we had a total of 35 students performing and an audience of nearly 100. PerformHER is also an opportunity to raise money for both entities, expanding more possibilities for our young East Enders who cannot afford extracurricular classes in theatre, art, music, or dance a chance to explore their creative side and follow their dreams.
This year we will be performing at the Jamesport Meeting House, Saturday, March 18, 2023, at 6:00 pm.
Tickets: $20.00 each
The annual joint performance brings together musicians, singers, and dancers to delight audiences with an eclectic combination of classical and current music.
Your ticket purchase supports scholastic opportunities for both performing arts schools so that East End area youth can participate in extracurricular classes in theatre, art, music, or dance regardless of their ability to pay.
