Just had the great pleasure of working on the UM’s Distinguished Alumni Awards Gala 2017. Under the vision of Stacy Wyatt and her special events team, the gala paid homage to 6 brilliant alumni:
Thanks to my wonderful performers representing the Desautels School of Music and Jazz program as well as the Rady to Sing choir. We “La La Landed” our way to the stars and demonstrated that we truly are the “World’s Greatest”!
The Adults Only wing of WST’s StudioWorks program wrapped up their 8-month training program with an original cabaret based on relationships. The 90 minute show loosely based on the trials and tribulations of the “dating game” played to a sellout crowd at the Park Theatre combining song and dance with hilarious vignettes and special guest performers B.O.S.S. Dance crew. Under the direction of Brenda Gorlick with Trish Franklin on piano, the 12 member ensemble showcased classic and contemporary material deftly tied together by “Speed Dating” scenes highlighting many quirky characters. The energy of the evening was palpable and judging by the audience response, an absolute crowd-please.
