2009 Concord Arts Telefest

The Arts Telefest is a celebration of over 100 local artists and arts organizations in the Concord area. The are 3 ways for you to watch the Telefest;

  • Tune In - Watch it live on Channels 22 & 6 in Concord
  • Drop In - Watch it live in-person at the Christa McAuliffe Auditorium at Concord High School
  • Click On - Watch it live right here on Your Concord TV

It will be an exciting day featuring interviews and performances by more than 75 local artists, representing more than 20 arts organizations. This year will also include live performances by 11 local dance, theatre and musical groups in the Christa McAuliffe Auditorium at Concord High School. Outside of the auditorium there will be door prizes, refreshments and televisions set up so that attendees can view the rest of the Arts Telefest live on Channels 22 and 6. It’s free to attend this event, so mark your calendar for March 29th and come to Concord High School’s auditorium.

A full list of all the invited artists can be found HERE.

I'll be on live from 11:13 to 11:20, and then from 11:20 to 11:24 they will be showing a clip of an interview that was done in the darkroom at the Kimball-Jenkins School of Art.

If you're in Concord, come on down and watch the show. If you aren't in Concord, find out what you can do to support the arts in your community. In these tough economic times, art programs are nearly always the first thing to face the budget ax. Art is a vital ingredient in an enriched life. Everyone's mission should be to facilitate and secure the sustainable benefits of visual arts education and appreciation for all members of their community. Don't just stand by and watch the arts perish in your schools and community.



Keep doing good. It works.
