Students in the Southeast US Encouraged to Apply by The Palmetto State Arts Education

The Palmetto State Arts Education (PSAE), a Columbia SC based arts integration organization, announces its call for applicants for the “Rising Stars” annual program.

“Rising Stars,” in its 10th year, recognizes artistically talented students between the ages of 9-18. Selected students are showcased during two weeks of performances at this summer’s Piccolo Spoleto in Charleston SC (May 28-June 8, 2018). Piccolo Spoleto runs concurrently with the annual Spoleto USA Arts Festival. All performances take place at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in downtown Charleston, SC.

Students who are not full-time college students, and who reside in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida are eligible to apply.

“Rising Stars” encourages applicants from those who are visual artists, actors, dancers (ballet, modern & contemporary), creative writers, classical solo musicians (instrumental & vocal), and classical musical ensemble groups with no more than 12 members.

The application period opens January 15, 2018 and closes March 30, 2018. Applications are available online at:
