Arts for Youth Presents:
Hearts with Ukes!
Hearts with Ukes is currently not being offered. However, check back in the fall of 2014 for more information!
Hearts with Ukes (HwU) is a unique new troupe of young performers, ages 6-12, who volunteer their singing, acting, and musical talents to raise money for other less fortunate children. These creative and confident boys and girls perform to entertain family audiences and raise money for a number of well-established children’s charities such as the Jimmy Fund, St Jude’s Hospital, and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (Jerry’s Kids).
HwU delighted the audience at their “world premiere” performance for the public at Bridgewater State University in December of 2006. Since then they have helped to raised money for Amnesty International, Iraqi Children, Relay for Life, and other free concerts for the Bridgewater Community.
HwU, founded by Jim Quinn, is the latest initiative under the umbrella of the Arts for Youth program, which is a multi-arts camp he founded 14 years ago for children ages 7-12. Professor Quinn leads HwU with the assistance of a University student who also performs with the troupe.
