Young Audiences of Northern California has been creating art experiences that inspire young people, expand learning, and enliven communities since 1958. Our goal is to reach children where they live, learn, and play with meaningful arts engagement.

Virtual Programs Now Available

Young Audiences of Northern California is excited to offer Residencies, Workshops, and Performances adapted to Distance Learning this year!  Creating a hybrid of live and pre-recorded lesson plans and performances is our new normal.

Our artists have honed their craft for real-time, in-person learning with live Zoom classes as well as delivering pre-recorded activities, assignments, and study materials for students and classroom teachers.

Any artists with the "Virtual Programs Available" logo are ready to bring virtual programming to your school!
