If you’re from Northeast Ohio, odds are you’re a Michael Stanley fan.
And you don’t think he’s ever gotten the recognition he deserved.
Cleveland Arts Prize is going to change that.
CAP will honor Stanley with a special Lifetime Achievement Award to celebrate his incredible 50-year career in music, local media, and philanthropy, according to a news release.
It will all go down on Saturday May 4, 2019, at The Beachland Ballroom, 15711 Waterloo Road in Cleveland. Festivities will begin at 6 p.m. with a pre-show VIP party in the tavern, silent auction in the lobby (which will include rock n roll memorabilia) and a special CAP benefit concert featuring An Acoustic Evening with Michael Stanley & Friends at 8 p.m. General Admission doors open at 7 p.m. Get all the details at www.clevelandartsprize.org.
“Cleveland Arts Prize core mission is to recognize and honor excellence among regional artists. Michael Stanley exemplifies the meaning of our mission and the impact our musical arts have here and well beyond our regional borders.” Alenka Banco, CAP executive director, said in the release.
CAP is the nation’s oldest municipal arts award and an ongoing platform for celebrating Northeast Ohio’s exceptional arts and culture legacy. All proceeds from this event will support the Cleveland Arts Prize.
