As the 2010-2011 arts season starts to get underway, JumpstART – the YP activity arm of Culture Works – announced some new deals and upcoming events. This is a group dedicated to providing great arts opportunities to plug local young professionals into the arts scene. From their email:
Lots of great arts opportunities abound in Dayton – ranked #1 for arts and culture in midsized cities. But sometimes YPs have a hard time knowing about what’s happening and finding events that fit well into the pocketbook. That’s where JumpstART comes in – a no-membership/no-commitment way for YPs to get great deals on arts events and stay in the know. All you have to do is “like” us on Facebook for all the latest updates.
JUMP INTO MODERN MASTERS at the Dayton Art Institute – Thursday, September 16 at 5:30 PM.
RSVPs are requested for this event to get a proper food count – Email Claire at CNerl@cultureworks.org. For only $10 (payable at the door), each YP gets:
- a tour of the special exhibit, Modern Masters (featured in the Columbus Dispatch here and highlighted on Bucher’s Beat here),
- two drink tickets,
- appetizers from Elegant Fare,
- a ticket to the upcoming party – OKTOBERFEST,
- and great networking with other YPs from many different groups.
PORGY AND BESS at the Dayton Opera with music by the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra
(Note – This is not an official “jump,” but it is considered THE Great American Opera, so we wanted to provide ways to get a great ticket deal and encourage YPs to check it out together. JumpstART will be attending on Saturday, October 23, but your group can use this discount for any performance.)
Porgy and Bess is celebrating its 75th Anniversary, and Dayton Opera is honoring this George and Ira Gershwin classic with an extraordinary international cast of rising opera stars. Neil Gittleman conducts the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and the production includes Dayton Contemporary Dance Company and chorus members from Central State and Wilberforce Universities.
Here’s the DEAL: Order your Porgy and Bess tickets now before they go for sale to the public and save 15% on groups of 10 or more. Mention the JumpstART group deal for the group discount when you call Ticket Center Stage at 937-228-3630.
