SingBig! Musical Revue Finale

After two weeks of hard work and devotion, SingBig! Summer Camp came to a close, with a wonderful performance Friday (8/3) at the Ice House! Under the direction of Joel Newman, the girls entertained the audience with a feel good musical revue that showed off the many skills they learned during the camp. Watching the progress from day to day, week to week was a joy to behold.

Not only did the girls expand their musical skills individually, they enjoyed working together as a group and forged some new friendships. Joel was a wonderful teacher and remarked afterwards what a joy it was to work with the group. Many thanks to everyone who helped make SingBig! 2018 a big success. In addition to Joel and Issac for his great volunteer effort with sound, big thanks in order to the Ice House,  The Boys and Girls Club, Adam and Janet from BlackCat Music and a special thank you to Vista Member, Amber Light, for wrapping up her great one year of service with constant support for SingBig!

Music In Your Life

 

Grammy Award Winner, Brad Paisley has been giving the guitar off his back to an audience member during his shows. Brad will pick a child out of the audience and present him or her with a just played Fender Paramount acoustic guitar. Paisley will make his message clear to the young recipient: “Take this guitar and learn how to play it!”

Paisley said he loves the idea  of starting a kid down the right path just like his grandfather showed him. “He taught me that learning to play an instrument will greatly enhance your life”
