Arts Express creates a wonderful Patriotic Show each year for the Fourth of July. The organization is full of friendly, helpful people who really seem to enjoy preparing and performing fun and touching music.
My family and I look forward to the next show!

Perhaps I might consider trimming the show by a few songs.

I have had the privilege of singing with Arts Express for the past several years. The rehearsal process and the performances are always impactful and very enjoyable. Arts Express does an excellent job reaching out to the community with an encouraging and inspiring message of hope and love with each event. I am blessed to be connected with such a wonderful, giving group of God's people.

Arts Express provides an amazing opportunity for our young people to be involved and encouraged in the arts. The concerts also provide hope and inspiration to the Tucson community. I have been singing in Let Freedom Sing as well as Follow the Star for several years. On July 4 we perform a piece in which the song of each branch of military service is recognized. During the singing those in the audience stand when their particular branch is mentioned. It is difficult to sing as I swallow the tears watching the young (currently serving) and the old (who have given so much as well) stand proudly waving their flags. It just wouldn't be July 4th for me without being involved in this way.

Find additional funding allowing the concerts to be held in a larger venue.

I feel that experience with the arts is an important part of a person's development. Through the programs offered by Arts Express (e.g., the Fine Arts Youth Academy), children are exposed to a variety of art forms. Funds raised by Arts Express are utilized to offer scholarships to students who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend the Academy.

My mom signed me up for the junior musical and I had so much fun. I learned a lot about putting on a performance and made a bunch of new friends. The director of our musical was awesome!

ArtsExpress IS the 4th of July. What else is there? We look forward to it every summer. The whole community would benefit if more folks would attend. It should run twice and be packed out!

I'd like to see it performed twice on the 4th of July
