We are thrilled to announce that we will be having a LIVE performance for our Summer Performance Academy singers! Of course, we will follow all guidelines, but it will be live with a majorly physically distanced (and masked) audience of just their parents and siblings. For those who want to view from home, we will be posting a link to a live stream!
It took many hours of researching places that might accommodate a small, physically distanced gathering of people, but the Newtown Theatre in Newtown, PA really came through for us! Until now, they've been renting family movie nights in the theatre for no more than 25 people. They agreed to let us rent the space to perform on Saturday, August 29th at 2 pm! The singers and I couldn't be happier with this plan. After many months of no performances, we will finally be performing in an actual theater!
Summer Performance Academy is a program for high school aged singers who are serious about a career in the performing arts. Each summer, they receive weekly lessons, and group coaching in a masterclass style format. 10 weeks of hard work culminates in a final performance for an invited audience! Last year (our first year) was a smashing success and we can't wait to see this year's group shine!
