Generation Dream is just two weeks away, and you can bet that our performer’s have been working hard and rehearsing in preparation for the show. We are so excited to share with you what our talented youth will be bringing to the stage this February. Be it a song, a dance, hip-hop, poetry, or spoken word, all of our youth have been compelled to perform as a way to help spread awareness and peace in the Richmond community.
Here are what just a few of our talented performers had to say about why they have chosen to perform in this year’s edu-concert:
Generation dream is about more than just the chance for Richmond youth to showcase their talent. For many of our resilient performers, Generation Dream is an opportunity to pursue their own ambitions in the face of personal challenges. “In the past I’ve participated in the Educoncert because it’s been an outlet to relay a positive and empowering message to youth.” Says Shayla Winn, “Now that my sight has been impaired, I’m showing people that I’m still following my vision. My sight is not the same, but I still have a voice!”
No matter the reasons for participating, it’s clear that all of our performers have a special message to share with you! Come listen, and join us for Generation Dream February 2nd at the Richmond Public Library, and February 11th the Grace Street Theater!
