The residency will feature various student workshops and performances, as well as opportunities for students to work in close contact with 9th Wonder, and will culminate in a performance by 9th Wonder at the Jefferson.

The Arts Board of the University of Virginia is a student-run board whose mission it is to present an outstanding artist, performance, and/or exhibition each year in a three-year rotation that includes music, visual arts, and drama.

The program was created to raise students’ awareness of and appreciation for the arts. Its purpose is three-fold:

  • To produce an arts event that will raise awareness of the arts and be an event that will have an impact on the student body,
  • To involve students in the presentation and administration of a national/international-scale arts event and residency, and
  • To provide an opportunity for students to interact with the arts presenter(s) selected to perform/present/exhibit.

The 2017 UVA Music Arts Board includes:  Wesley Diener, Walter Floyd (Undergraduate co-chair), Ben Harney, Marc Jones, Matthew Leon, Ryan Maguire (Graduate co-chair), Aidan O'Keefe, Marie Olavere, Elizabeth Roden, Sam Roller, Isabella VanKesteren, and Lucy Wu.
