Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot, First Lady Amy Eshleman, and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) have announced the 2019 Rising Star Honor Roll presented by Allstate Insurance Company, comprised of 35 outstanding young artists. Recognized for their creative leadership and exceptional artistic talents, the honorees were nominated directly by their mentors from arts organizations, school arts programs and community organizations in the following areas: music, theatre, dance, visual arts, media arts and literary arts.
We’re so proud that our very own Jeremy Nohel (Alice S. Pfaelzer Tuition-free Conservatory, piano) has been honored as a member of the 2019 Rising Star Honor Roll.
This year’s Rising Star honorees represent a vibrancy of creative life and arts education from all across the city. They will also be recognized at the 2nd Annual YAS! Fest (Youth Arts Showcase) on Saturday, September 21, in Millennium Park. The celebration of Chicago’s talented creative youth features young artists in music, dance, theatre, spoken word, DJs, design, photography and more!
