Celebrity Series
Partners With DNCC
To Select Young Performers

According to Martha H. Jones, President and Executive Director, FleetBoston Celebrity Series, has been chosen to assist the Democratic National Convention Committee in selecting young performers, ages 5 to 18, from around Massachusetts to perform on the FleetCenter stage at the Democratic National Convention from July 26-29.

"We are thrilled to be a part of highlighting the tremendously talented young performers of Massachusetts," Jones commented. "As a performing arts presenter and arts educator, spreading the word about the spirit and culture of our great state is a core value for the Celebrity Series."

The theme of "Student Performances at the DNC" is the celebration of the spirit, diversity and culture of Massachusetts. All student music, dance and theater groups from Massachusetts are eligible to apply.

Those wishing to apply to perform are requested to download a letter and an application [.pdf file] at www.celebrityseries.org/dnc.htm and mail it with a 3-4 minute videotape, audiotape or CD to:
