Guam artists, performers wanted for Kennedy Center’s ‘Arts Across America’ Series


Guam artists and performers have been invited to showcase their talents in a national performing arts event for the first time.

Guam CAHA announced this week that they are looking for performers for the Kennedy Center’s “Arts Across America” Series.

With the pandemic still ongoing, performances are going to be shown virtually.

CAHA executive director Jillette Leon Guerrero went on air with NewsTalk 57’s Patti Arroyo to talk about Guam’s participation in the national arts event.

Leon Guerrero says that although they already have performers representing Guam on Nov. 12, they are still looking for performers for the Dec. 8 slot.

“We’re looking for any type of act. We just need 2 or 3-minute acts. I guess you can call it a video … you know, a short snippet. The community will make a decision on how many are going to be used. We’d like to showcase Guam and the whole point of this is to sort of uplift people because the arts, the humanities, that’s what it’s all about and during this time of lockdown, it’s good to have access to these types of things and it just makes you feel good,” Leon Guerrero said.

Those who are interested in auditioning must submit a short biography and a 2 to 4-minute performance video by Nov. 3 to Jackie Balbas, CAHA program coordinator. Her email is
