Bring the Bicknell Center right into your living room

Pittsburg's Virtual Festival of the Arts is allowing musicians and performers from around the community to entertain an audience.

Even if they can’t see the audience, the performers who are part of Pitt State’s Virtual Festival of the Arts each week will have the chance to be entertaining more than the Bicknell Family Center ever has in one sitting.

Rebecca Cutler-Metzger, a Pitt State alum and teacher at Thomas Jefferson High School, stopped by the morning show to talk to Jesse Irwin about what it means to be able to be onstage for the first time in a while.

Watch the J3 Band’s performance below.

Since July 1st, Wednesday nights have become a routine streaming of one-hour concerts, featuring some of the area’s musicians and dancers. Ranging from the J3 Band playing classic rock, to classical chamber music, to contemporary dance by Midwest Regional Ballet, this is one of many ways that the show goes on.How to view:

“The Pittsburg area is well known for having long been filled with talent in the arts,” said Festival Director Raul Munguía. “It’s one of the things that attracted me to this community, and one of the reasons I’ve stayed. We’re looking forward to being able to showcase that for not just viewers here, but across the region, the U.S., and beyond.”
