ASN 2014 National Conference in Denver: Careers, students, and a creative state

Key West, FL (PRWEB) September 01, 2014

This year, attendees of the Arts Schools Network's Annual National Conference, October 22-25, will be inspired not only by the sight and height of the Rockies, but also by Colorado's support of the creative arts, the 5th leading economic industry in the state.

The creative environment in Denver will be a fitting setting for conference theme: "Career Pathways in the Arts, and More!" Colorado's Creative Industries, a division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development & International Trade, began in 2008 to foster significant and sustained investment in the creative sector where entrepreneurs and enterprises can flourish. The state is growing its own creative workforce.

William M. Kohut, Principal of Denver School of the Arts (DSA), an ASN member school and host of the conference, said, "Across the nation, we're beginning to see a movement of arts education geared towards careers in the arts -- audio engineering, visual arts, graphic arts, fashion design, film, video, and technical theater arts. It's important that ASN members learn and talk about these programs. They can encourage their states to join this movement and help to cultivate the creative arts across the United States."

The conference will also focus a spotlight on students. In addition to sessions on access to arts education for special needs and minority students, there will be a separate educational strand for students who will attend the event. Student showcase performances presented by participating member schools will also be a highlight of this core conference, including student performances by the ASN award-winning Electric Rock Orchestra from Idaho Arts Charter School and by a jazz combo from the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts.

The highlight of the event will be the fully staged collaborative performance of "Carmina Burana," featuring full orchestra, chorus, soloists, and dance performed by students from Denver School of the Arts in Denver, CO; Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, D.C., and Orange County School of the Arts in Santa Ana, CA. It will be conducted by Dr. Larry Livingston, Director of Orchestras, University of Southern California, Thornton School of Music in Los Angeles, CA.

"Carmina Burana" is open to the public and will be performed on Thursday, October 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The center is the second largest performing arts venue in the nation (after Lincoln Center in New York City.) General admission tickets for $ 50 are available on the DSA website, ASN members may also purchase tickets through ASN conference registration.

"We are extremely excited about the collaboration with Orange County and Duke Ellington schools and performances by other ASN schools' students," said Kohut. " This is a great outreach and network opportunity for our students. They will meet people who may be future peers at colleges and conservatories. It's important to involve students in this event; we can help create advocates for the arts."

Kohut added, "We're thrilled to host the conference. It's an opportunity to not only showcase DSA, but also to introduce arts leaders throughout the nation to Colorado's creative industries, initiatives, and venues."

More information about the ASN National Conference in Denver, including registration, schedule, and accommodations, are available on the ASN website,

Arts Schools Network is a non-profit association founded in 1981, dedicated to providing leaders in arts schools with quality resources, support, and networking opportunities.


Los Carneros Region In Sonoma And Napa Valleys

The Los Carneros Region is a beautiful section of the southern Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley areas. Known officially as an AVA, or an American Viticulture Area, this region is home to seemingly countless vineyards and wineries. The area's name comes from the sheep that were known to roam along its rolling hills - carneros means sheep in Spanish - decades ago when the area was still known for farms. It is for the vineyards that now make it internationally-recognized.

The area's arid soil and temperate Mediterranean climate make it perfect for growing the grapes that have now made it so famous. The climate has often been said to resemble the Italian peninsula's, with short and temperate winters and long, warm summers with little rain and lots of sunshine, the Los Carneros Region cultivates what is truly the most perfect atmosphere for the grapes to grow. Also, because they are never exposed to the extremes of either temperature, the grapes from this area are known as some of the most hearty and delicious ones in the world. Additionally, compared to the hotter regions of the farther-north Sonoma and Napa counties, Los Carneros tends to be much cooler due to its proximity to the famed fog of the north coast. But this temperate climate is also good for visitors, however, as the warm and sunny climate allows for almost year-round outdoor excursions like bike riding, hiking, and just exploring the beautiful hills and valleys of the Los Carneros Region.

The Los Carneros Region itself is technically a viticulture name for the grape-growing area that encompasses the southern portions of the famed Sonoma and Napa Valleys. In order to easily categorize and standardize the locations within the United States that produce wine, terms like these are given to geographical areas in order to make sure your favorite wines' grapes are authentically claiming to be from a certain area. Therefore, every time a wine's label claims its grapes were grown in California's own Los Carneros Region, you know that at least 85 percent of the grapes in that bottle were grown within this beautiful region's boundaries.

These areas are most frequently referred to by the names of the valleys, who are famous in and of themselves for the incredible grapes they produce. But in addition to being incredible destinations for the wine-lover, the avid vacationer will find much history, culture, and surely many activities that will make them fall in love with the incredible diversity of the Los Carneros Region.

Sonoma itself has a rich historical tradition as part of early California's development from its original Native American inhabitants to a full member of the United States of America. The entire state of California was once occupied almost solely by Native Americans. Sonoma, because of its temperate weather and location close to both rivers and fertile land, was the bustling center of a Native American village. But soon Catholic monks from Mexico began exploring California and converting the native peoples to Christianity, setting up a series of 21 missions that run up the coast of California, the farthest north of which is the one located in Sonoma's modern town square. Soon after this, the mission was secularized under Spanish colonial rule, as barracks - which still exist today adjacent to the Sonoma mission structure - were built and the government moved in. But Sonoma was also the center of an even more important event, one that changed the landscape of the United States forever. It was in the Los Carneros Region's Sonoma Valley town square that the Bear Flag Revolt officially ended, accomplishing its mission of claiming California's statehood and freedom from Spanish colonial rule.

But the historical value of the area is but one aspect of what makes the Los Carneros Region an incredible destination for your next vacation. Los Carneros' beautiful landscapes and wineries make this a thoroughly enjoyable destination for nature-lovers and wine-lovers alike. Due to its temperate climate and northern California's signature beautiful rolling hills, spending time outside soaking in your surroundings should surely not be missed. From grand oak trees to hills covered in majestic grape vines, the Los Carneros Region is an aesthetic delight.
