Last year's event: On October 19-20, 2013 under the direction of a professional staff working alongside a student management team, NexGen was held at the Zembo Shrine Auditorium in Harrisburg, PA. Over 1000 people turned out over the two days to enjoy a fascinating visual arts exhibit featuring artwork from students from 13 different school districts in the midstate. Pennsylvania’s First Lady Susan Corbett joined mistress of ceremonies, abc27’s Valerie Pritchett to present cash awards to the top winners selected by a panel of distinguished judges.  Two performance stages provided some of the most dynamic talent ranging from student performers to professional singers and dancers. Yewande Austin brought the house down, not only with her own range of vocal artistry ,but then led a chorus of students from Harrisburg to rousing cheers. Dancers Rachel McLaren and Marcus Willis, principles with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and Paunika Jones, former principle with Dance Theater of Harlem electrified the crowd with contemporary ballet and modern dance segments. The trio also led well-attended workshops during the weekend. A Creative Worship Explosion on Sunday capped off an outstanding festival and featured some of the most inspirational performances from singers, dancers, musicians, and live artists.  A management team of local high school and college students work with business professionals in the community to develop and apply the specialized skills needed to organize the festival from beginning to end.  In 2013, our Management Team was comprised of 20 students representing Harrisburg, Susquehanna Township, and Central Dauphin School districts in addition to Messiah College, HACC, and Penn State Harrisburg.
