September 8, 2015 - A wide spectrum of arts programming will be on display on Thursday, September 17 from 9:15 AM 1:15 PM at Fay School in Southborough, as Young Audiences of Massachusetts (YAMA) invites parents, teachers and youth arts administrators from around the Commonwealth to watch their growing roster of artists perform for Pre-K through 8th grade students at the school.

Programs will take place throughout the school day in several different campus venues. Participants register, grab a schedule and then plot out a day of watching masterful artists introduce young people to dance, music, theater, puppetry, storytelling and visual arts, using these disciplines to bring world cultures and academic subjects to life! Attendance is free, and pre-registration is available online at

The YAMA Fall 2015 Artist Showcase will include 20-minute preview versions of many of the best-loved programs as well as new programs from Hip Hop Dance Troupe and U.S. Cultural Ambassadors Ill Style & Peace Productions, master illusionist and storyteller Leland Faulkner. In addition, new YAMA teaching artist Nancy Bell will be performing Spinning History: Heroines on the Homefront, a visual arts and women's history program about the role the art of spinning played in the American Revolution.

In addition to viewing special preview performances of these programs, showcase attendees will have the opportunity to meet the new YAMA Executive Director Julie McConchie, who joined the organization in August.

"I am so inspired by the dedication, diversity and incredible energy of our teaching artists," McConchie remarked. "I look forward to sharing their talent next week with students, teachers, arts administrators, and families."
