This season, The Music Center’s Spotlight celebrates 34 years of guiding young artists to develop their talents, to strive and to succeed. Presented by TMC Arts, Spotlight is completely free to participate, which gives equal footing to all teens, no matter their talent level or resources. Through arts experiences, auditions, feedback and mastery classes taught by renowned artists, students receive invaluable guidance within a supportive environment, allowing them to hone their skills and determine their path.
Spotlight recognizes and rewards participants with performance opportunities, access to industry professions and more than $100,000 in arts scholarships each year. Part education, part competition, Spotlight is transformational for young artists.
