Talent Search for Jamestown 2007 Anniversary Weekend
The Fairfax County Virginia 2007 Community Citizen Planning Committee has announced Jamestown 2007’s talent search for America’s Anniversary Weekend, May 11-13, 2007, in Jamestown, Va.
Performing artists—singers, dancers, storytellers, musicians and others—are encouraged to apply to entertain at American’s Anniversary Weekend. To demonstrate Virginia’s rich cultural heritage, a wide range of performers are being sought, including African-American, American Indian and Euro-American.
The weekend will feature three days of continuous family entertainment on six stages, and performances will be held in three different locations in the Jamestown area. America’s Anniversary Weekend is one of the signature events of next year’s statewide celebration of the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown.
Performing artists interested in applying must fill out an artist profile form and submit a CD, audiocassette, videotape or DVD demonstrating their performance skills. Applications must be received by Feb. 1, 2007.
Artist profile forms are available online at www.prosody07.com or by calling 757-345-6460, TTY 711. Sample performance recordings or materials will not be returned.
Prosody Creative Services will select the artists to perform during the weekend. The firm has been hired to produce the event by Jamestown 2007, the statewide organization that is coordinating efforts to commemorate Jamestown’s anniversary.

Fairfax 2007 Commemoration
Fairfax County’s Virginia 2007 Community Citizen Planning Committee promotes and publicizes events taking place in the county that commemorate Jamestown’s 400th anniversary.
Appointed by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, the committee represents the diversity of communities and resources in the county, including the African American, Hispanic and American Indian communities and representatives from Fort Belvoir, Wolf Trap, George Washington’s Mount Vernon and the Convention and Visitors Corporation.
As an official Virginia 2007 Community, Fairfax County is participating in next year’s statewide celebrationscommemorating the founding of Jamestown. Settled in 1607, Jamestown was the first permanent English settlement in the Americas and is, in essence, our nation’s birthplace.
To celebrate the county’s role in the birth of our nation, the committee will publish an anthology of county history during the past 400 years. To learn more about this project or submit an entry, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/opa/va2007.
