WHO WE ARE

We are a non-profit association in Michigan City, IN, working to promote Written & Performing Arts in Northwest Indiana (WPANI). We assist and sponsor festivals, productions, performances, and other events for music, theater, and literature.

 

Our aim is to keep students connected with, as well as interested in, the region’s longstanding arts traditions. To inspire students of all ages, we connect communities, school districts, and other arts organizations with celebrities, professional artists, directors, and clinicians.

 

Find a performance or a production to attend each month! Support Written & Performing Arts in Northwest Indiana. Help us sponsor even more opportunities, celebrity appearances, or clinicians, and stay up to date with ViVace Assai!

“SUMMER RHAPSODY / FEED THE SOUL”

ANNUAL MUSIC FESTIVAL / WRITTEN & PERFORMING ARTS SHOWCASE

The more celebrities, artists, and people we can rally behind Written & Performing Arts opportunities, the stronger our network becomes. Miguel Rosario-Vega formed the Summer Rhapsody Music Festival in 2011 to connect professional musicians and artists across the entire region, launching the first performance of the Summer Rhapsody Music Festival Orchestra. Over the years, the Summer Rhapsody Music Festival Orchestra has been featured numerous times at concerts in downtown Valparaiso.

 

Additionally, Derek Meilaender formed a Written & Performing Arts Showcase for local school districts and non-profit arts organizations in 2015. VAi sponsors a series of annual showcase events and fundraisers, called “Feed The Soul,” at a local restaurant in Westville, IN (Sweet Lou, That’s Who!). Each Memorial Weekend kicks off various events and activities for students to meet regional artists and representatives from local orchestras and other non-profit arts organizations. Become aware of what’s happening to the arts across our region, and start connecting with VAi’s ever-growing support network for music, theatre, and literature programs.
