Amazing!” –Emil Parrinello, “Awesome!” –Mary McLaughlin Donahue, “Over the top!” –Sylvia Nosomowitz.  “The Best!” –Robert Chenkin.  Your sentiments say it all.  You know what an important component QPAC is to our community’s resources.

Like other arts organizations, ticket revenues do not cover all of our expenses.  We must raise funds from other sources to sustain our programming.  To address this need, we have added a special benefit show, QPAC Presents: NYC’s Rising Stars, a performance by exceptional, next-generation artists, to be held on Saturday, May 11 at 8pm.  Do you enjoy programs like American Idol, The Voice, So You Think You Can Dance?  Leave the TV (and the commercials) behind and judge for yourself the featured young talent hand-picked from New York’s most prestigious performing arts schools, including Juilliard, Manhattan School of Music, American Musical & Dramatic Academy, Mannes College - The New School for Music, NYU Tisch School of the Arts and many more.

QPAC Presents: NYC’s Rising Stars is being directed by celebrated Broadway Director/Musical Arranger Chapman Roberts.

All proceeds of the ticket price for this show will benefit QPAC.  For this special performance tickets are $35 and $50.  As an added benefit, those who reserve tickets at the $50 level will be invited to a special evening of Q&A with Broadway’s legendary Tommy Tune on Thursday, May 23, 2013.
