Earlier this week, philanthropists, celebrities and YoungArts alumni came together to celebrate our 35th Anniversary and the kick-off to YoungArts New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Presented in collaboration with luxury brand Swarovski, the event was hosted by honorary co-chairs and YoungArts artistic advisors Mikhail Baryshnikov, Artistic Director of the Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC) and renowned opera singer Plácido Domingo, as well as gala co-chairs Sarah Arison and Agnes Gund.

Before the event, we had a chance to catch up with some of our friends and alumni. Here are some quotes and YoungArts stories from these brilliant artists and supporters:
