Every year we hold a large-scale showcase for our talented students to show off what they have learned, accompanied on stage with a live band of professional musicians. As always, friends and family are invited, and we also encourage the community to get involved and enjoy the night of entertainment as well. Upon entry, everyone has the opportunity to walk the red carpet and get their picture taken by photographers and press before the big event. Another unique twist on this annual event that makes it different from all other recitals is that we partner up with the Bennett Cancer Center to raise money for their Music Therapy Department at Stamford Hospital. This is an important cause that is dear to our hearts and reminds our students and all who are involved why it is really important to give back and share our talents for a good cause.
Besides being a fun night of live music and performing arts, the students also have a unique opportunity to be seen by the “who’s who” of the industry. In the past, we have had representatives in attendance from places like Sony Music Entertainment, Columbia Records, VH1, Berklee College of Music, Atlantic Records, National Artists Management Company (Broadway), MTV, and RCA Records. You just never know who will be in the building next year!
The 3rd Annual Showcase will be held on Saturday night, January 17th, 2015 (MLK Weekend)
at the Rippowam Middle School Auditorium in Stamford, CT!
*Performers have a mandatory dress rehearsal the night before on Friday, 1/16/15 6-8pm
at the performance venue located at 381 High Ridge Road in Stamford, CT.
