Arts Council Update

The Syracuse City Arts Council (SCAC) would again like to thank local business Econ Mortgage for sponsoring our virtual Halloween Costume Contest. And the winners are…in the individual age categories: Benjamin Flinders as Mickey Mouse (age 0-5), Kaleb Parry as Ernesto del la Cruz (age 6-17), Michael Wong as Toothless (age 18+). The Pairs winners are Sydney and Lainey Godfrey, as The Grinch and Cindy Lou Who. The Hazen Family won the Group category as the Super Mario Family, and Lindsey Carroll’s pet won as Return of the Ewok.

For the month of December, the SCAC is having an online Readers Theatre event! We will be reading Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” for both a junior cast (ages 8-18/high school seniors) and a cast for adults (ages 18-108). If you always wanted to do theater and have not because of stage fright, or if you can read and be online on camera, this is for you! If you have missed being part of a show during the pandemic, this is also for you! It’s for everyone and anyone who wants to, to sign-up by December 4th. Check our website for more information on how be a part of this new and fun event. The performances will be at 7 pm. Thursday, December 10th for the junior cast and Friday December 11th for the adult cast. (the online venue TBD). Come and be part of (hopefully) a new Syracuse holiday tradition!

The SCAC will not be having their monthly meeting in December. Our next meeting will be Wednesday, January 6th, at 8 pm. Individuals wishing to make public comments will be limited to three minutes each. You may also send ideas or comments to :, and your email will be read to the council.
