Shining the Spotlight on Wake County Students

[Raleigh, N.C.] – The United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County is proud to partner with the Wake County Public School System for the 2019 Pieces of Gold student talent showcase on March 6 at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Pieces of Gold is a night of music, song and dance performed by 1000 talented Wake County students representing 33 elementary, middle and high schools.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to share their talents and skills in an elegant performance venue for members of the community and parents. Produced by Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) and with continued support from the City of Raleigh Arts Commission (Gifts of Gold Visual Art Show) and Wake Education Partnership, the funds generated from ticket sales provide direct support for WCPSS Arts Education programs.

“We have a strong partnership with Wake County schools,” says Eleanor Oakley, President and CEO of United Arts. “We are pleased to be a part of this long-standing event, which so rightfully showcases the talent and hard work of so many Wake County arts teachers and their students.”

Gladwell Orthodontics is the title sponsor for this year’s event.
