A cavalcade of more than 100 Central Washington University students will perform in the College of Arts and Humanities (CAH) Showcase:  A Spotlight on the Arts! at the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) on Tuesday, May 9, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The museum which is normally closed on Tuesdays, will open its doors for an engaging and inspiring evening of theatre, music, dance, and art—all emerging out of a talented CWU student body.

“The showcase will introduce the larger Seattle community to our amazing talented student artists, musicians, actors, and performers,” Stacey Robertson, CAH dean said.

An exclusive preview of the SAM galleries will begin at 5 p.m. At 6 p.m. student performances commence with a flash mob ascending into the crowd. Other acts include a string quartet, opera scenes, jazz combos, chamber choir, and artists.

The interactive showcase offers attendees a dynamic evening of entertainment, and the opportunity to engage with student artists and CWU faculty.

Central provides its students occasions beyond the classroom to practice and perform their art. The showcase serves as a venue for CAH students to have a spotlight shown on their talents while expanding their stage into Seattle.

A Spotlight on the Arts is also a fundraising opportunity for donors to support CWU students and their futures. Donations will go to student scholarships in the arts.

Robertson said CWU provides its students with a transformative education that equips them not only for their first job, but, more important, for their first promotion.

Inside the classroom, students are provided a student-centered approach including hands-on instruction with small class sizes. Coupled with outside performances, CWU is devoted to producing life-long opportunities for student success.

“We take a lot of pride in the unique education we offer our students,” Robertson said. “We are life-long partners in their success—and donors will be too.”

The CAH Showcase is an invitation-only event in support of the arts.

All are welcome to support student scholarships in the arts or contribute in other areas, by visiting
