Our Stories, Our Songs Recap

Our Stories, Our Songs was the culminating event of Arts Ignite’s Arts in Education Week celebration (September 11-17th) supporting arts education.  Annually, this week celebrates the transformative power of the arts in classrooms and the impact it has on young people. It was an honor to commemorate the week surrounded by our Art’s Ignite community.

The beautiful sunlight shining through the venue reflected the warmth and intimate connection we felt with everyone there. As we continue to celebrate arts education, we hope the stories shared by Tony, J., and Elizabeth stay with you and inspire you to support the arts in your daily lives. 

With music supervision by acclaimed Music Director and our founder Mary-Mitchell Campbell, we heard the voices of Tony award nominee Tony Yazbeck (Flying Over Sunset, Finding Neverland, Chicago), Grammy award-winning and Tony award nominee Elizabeth Stanley (Jagged Little Pill, On the Town, Million Dollar Quartet), and J. Harrison Ghee (Some Like It Hot, Kinky Boots, Mrs. Doubtfire).
