Stepping Out looks for new musicians
If you, or someone you know, is looking for a great way to meet local artists and enjoy collaborating, this is the project for you.
“Stepping Out” is currently looking for pianists, guitarists, trumpet players and strings to accompany a talented roster of dancers and vocalists.
Stepping Out is a production of Homer Council on the Arts, featuring the talents of local performers. The show will be presented on Jan. 18, at the Mariner Theatre. Rehearsals will be held at HCOA, while a tech and dress rehearsal will take place at the Theatre, prior to the public performance.
Creative Director Jessica Williams said her goal is to have as much live music as possible, to create a much more organic experience during the production.
If you have any questions or would like to get paired up with another artist, please contact Williams at 435-0614 or via e-mail at

Contest calls for youth art
F Magazine  is hosting its fourth-annual Alaska Statewide Youth Art and Writing Competition.  Finalists will have their work curated in a gallery and published in F Magazine. The top two finishers will be awarded full scholarships to Sitka Fine Arts Camp.
Officials upped the deadline this year so finalists have the option to send their work to the national competition.
This competition is a great opportunity for youth to express themselves without censorship, work toward an end goal, create their best work, experience what their peers around the state are doing, receive public accolades for their accomplishments and give whole communities the opportunity to rally around their youth and art.

Musical Theater welcomes youth
Youth/Teen Musical Theatre offers a great chance for youth ages 8-18 to create a melodrama. The group meets Tuesdays and Thursdays, Dec. 10 – Feb. 27, while performances are scheduled for Feb. 28 and March 1. Register by Dec. 6 online at or at the HCOA office, 355 W. Pioneer Ave.
