Summer Kickoff Concert:

I’ve been cooking up something new for this year’s showcase and CANNOT wait! Just like always, EM Vocal Studio members will sing lead vocals on classic dance hits, accompanied by keyboard, electric guitar, electric bass, drumset, and harmonized background vocals. BUT . . . this year I’ve curated a whole show for you guys and all of your family and friends! Our concert will start with opener, Nicole McMahan. She’ll be performing acoustic originals and covers. EM Vocal Studio is the middle act – rocking with the full band of pro musicians, and background vocals from your EM Vocal Studio peers! And finally we’ll have our concert headliner Gavin McMahan with full band. I am so excited to have these fabulous musicians help us send off our summer in the absolute best way. This is not an event to miss!

  • Student Call-Time: 6:00pm
  • Student Attire: Whatever you would wear if you were a professional pop/rock star! But keep it classy: no flip flops, no hoodies . . . blue jeans are probably not a good idea, though they might be appropriate if you’re singing country or rock. Put some thought into what you’ll wear, and how you do your hair (and make-up, if you are a person who wears make-up).
  • Audience Attire: Anything you want!
  • Recital Fee: $75
  • Admission: $0
  • Note: This is a backyard concert! Bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. Hot dogs, chips, and sodas will be available for purchase. Guests should be prepared to give all of the energy they can to the performers. We want you dancing and singing along! Loud children and babies are totally welcome!

The Broadway Review is one of my favorite events of the year! I love the formal recital hall setting, and the gorgeous piano! Each of the students will perform a short monologue before singing their Broadway piece. Our goal is excellent story-telling! It can be such a powerful thing. I am so excited to be doing our second annual event with the Orem Piano Gallery. What a beautiful space!

Creator’s Concert:

  • Date: Thursday, September 26, 2019

  • Recital Fee + Ticket Prices: $60 per student (two tickets, purchase additional tickets for $25 apiece)

I am really looking forward to this one! This will be a night of artistic vulnerability . . . vocalists will be performing original compositions, and accompanying themselves on their favorite singer-songwriter covers. Meanwhile, everyone in the audience will be painting! Each ticket-holder can select a piece of pottery with a value of $16 (or can select a higher-priced item and pay the difference at the register). At the end of the night, we’ll all leave our creations at the studio to be glazed and fired in the kiln. You can pick up your pieces a week after the concert. I am always compelled by mixed-media events, and am thrilled to offer such an event with EM Vocal Studio! Creativity all around!
