YoungArts Scholars, Andrea Jarrett and Peter Eom

The National YoungArts Foundation discovers and fosters the next generation of visual, literary, and performing artists. In Miami, we sat down with foundation alumns, Andrea Jarrett and Peter Eom, as they prepared for “Yellow Lounge” – think classical music pop-up meets urban spaces. Here the musicians spoke about fear as motivation, the essence of individuality, and more.

YoungArts serves as the exclusive nominating agency for the “U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts,” the country’s highest honor for young students. Andrea and Peter are both former recipients of this award. The foundation’s national headquarters are now in the historic Bacardi building on Biscayne Boulevard.
