Cultural Arts Performance




The Cedar Fork Elementary family is very excited to welcome Yasu Ishida's performance "Japanese Magical Journey" on Friday,October 19th. It is a school wide performance and part of our cultural arts program.This program is funded through the  Cedar Fork Elementary PTA and a grant from the  United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County #artistinschool. 

Yasu Ishida, Master of Fine Arts in Theatre for Young Audiences, is an award-winning magician, director and storyteller, and a graduate of the Chavez Studio of Magic (the world's most prestigious magic school). He beautifully imbues the essence of traditional Japanese culture into his magic and storytelling. Yasu has enthralled audiences all over the United States, including performances at Disney Summer Stage Kids in New York and the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C., the world’s largest festival of Japanese culture outside of Japan. He was a nominee for the 2013 RAW Honolulu Performing Artist of the Year, and the American Alliance for Theatre & Education awarded his show with a 2014 Elizabeth and Don Doyle fellowship.
