Spotlight Visalia
Spotlight Visalia
A benefit concert to sustain our historic Visalia Fox Theatre and advance education in the performing arts.

The Visalia Fox Theatre is proud to once again present a special live production, “Spotlight Visalia”. This memorable benefit concert was created in 2017 to help sustain our historic Fox Theatre, originally built in 1930 and restored in 1999. It has become a Visalia icon and historical landmark that many consider to be the face of Visalia itself! Our hope is that this theatre will serve our community for many generations to come, but Spotlight Visalia is about so much more than the Fox.

In advance of our mission to support education in the performing arts, at the event this year, the Visalia Fox will be awarding “Spotlight Scholarships” to one outstanding student from each of the Visalia Unified School District’s public high schools: El Diamante, Golden West, Mt. Whitney, and Redwood. Each of the four scholarship recipients, after being hand-picked through a rigorous nomination and selection process, will have an opportunity to showcase their talents during solo performances at the start of the event.

You would be amazed at how many national talents have their origins in Visalia! One of those talents, Stan Taylor, a graduate of El Diamante, will be headlining the concert this year. Stan Taylor, better known locally as Stan Carrizosa, Jr., combines youthful energy and an incredible voice with an intangible charisma and vintage soul. He got his start as the winner of the ABC/Disney reality show, “High School Musical: Get in the Picture”. In 2017, he was featured on “The Steve Harvey Show”, where he brought the house down with his performance of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”. Since then, he has continued to develop a successful career as a Soul and R&B musician in Los Angeles, with a new studio album scheduled to be released later this year.

One of Taylor’s most successful endeavors thus far is a string of vintage hits entitled “The Classic Series.” Stan delivers seemingly effortless, soulful, and smooth acoustic renditions of covers he has selected to pay homage to industry icons like Al Green, Billy Paul, Frankie Valli, Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder. In his own journey as a musician it’s clear that Stan sees himself as a student of these great idols. Taylor’s genuine, raw and authentic talent will make you stop what you are doing and listen to the magic being made.

We know the production of this year’s Spotlight Visalia will inspire future generations to dream big! All in all, this event allows us to celebrate and support Visalia’s past, present, and future artistic highlights.
