Whitney Myer burst onto the scene in 2012, wowing Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton on NBC’s “The Voice” in 2012. A nexus of RnB, hip-pop and Rock n Roll, Whitney Myer’s soulful vocals and electrifying live performances have mesmerized audiences.
We couldn’t ask for a better supporter of The Center than Kelly and we are incredibly grateful for her past and continued support and leadership. We will miss her on the board, but we can’t wait to see her kicking up her heels at The Center soon!
In January, The Center for the Arts began our In Conversation With series to introduce you to experts on a variety of topics throughout our community. We’ve learned about Ayurvedic lifestyle, hiking in Nevada County, chocolate, and so much more. We are excited to spring into another season of conversations happening live on Zoom, Sundays at 4:00 p.m. Each episode includes an interactive Q&A and anyone can participate.
