The Valley Cultural Center (VCC) has announced an open call for Artists to perform their original work as opening acts for the 2018 season of NoHo Summer Nights. Our goal is to provide up-and-coming artists with a professional venue in which to play, promote and refine their talents, while cultivating new talent for other program locations.
The NoHo Summer Nights Emerging Artists Showcase will take place each Saturday during the regular concert season – June through August. Bands are selected by VCC’s programming committee and will be matched-up with the genre and/or style of the headliner playing that week. Artists will open the show starting at approximately 7:00 p.m. and play until 7:45 p.m. with the regular – headliner performance beginning at approximately 8:00 p.m.
“We created The NoHo Summer Nights Emerging Artists Showcase to provide local up-and-coming artists with a platform to share their work with the public. It’s an important part of the inclusion conversation happening now in the San Fernando Valley that’s often overlooked… simply giving artists a space to be seen and heard. – James W. Kinsey III, CEO/President Emeritus, Valley Cultural Center
