YoungArts Hosts Intimate Brunch and Performance in Aspen

By Whitewall

August 7, 2019

On Saturday, August 5, the National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts) hosted an intimate brunch at the private Aspen residence of Sandra and Tony Tamer on Highlands Mountain. The Tamers, and co-hosts Sarah Arison and Thomas Wilhelm, welcomed YoungArts supporters, philanthropists, and leaders to an afternoon celebrating the arts.

The highlight was a multidisciplinary performance by YoungArts alumni Blake Pfeil (2006 YoungArts Winner in Theater), Harrison Knostman (2018 YoungArts Winner in Dance), and Sophia Dion (2018 YoungArts Winner in Voice). Pfeil took center stage with his original piece Oscar; Midnight Train, written and performed by Dion, brought guests to tears; and Knostman moved through the audience with a modern choreography to Opia by Bungler. For the emotional finale, the artists performed the classic Sitting on the Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding and Steve Cropper.
