Young Artists Spotlight
The San Joaquin Valley is home to some of the most talented young musicians you'll find anywhere. Young Artists Spotlight gives these musicians, ranging from junior high through college the opportunity to perform live on the radio, and share their passion for classical music with the FM89 audience. The live performances take place each Spring, direct from the Bonner Performing Arts Studio. The programs can be heard Wednesdays at 3:00 PM from February through April. Young Artists Spotlight is hosted by George Mason.
Support for Young Artists Spotlight comes from the Bonner Family Foundation; Dr. Alice Martinson and Carole Sturgis.
