What do this year’s Oscar-nominated playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight), actress Viola Davis (Fences), and composer Jason Moran (13th) have in common? They found their passion at a critical time in their youth, they harnessed this passion toward pursuing a career in the arts, and they are all YoungArts alumni.

The Salon Series at YoungArts brings together the creative alumni voices and offers audiences an opportunity to engage with internationally renowned and emerging artists.
