2018 Celebration of Music

We are pleased to announce upcoming auditions for SCG Music Club members who would like to perform in the annual Celebration of Music "REWIND" show on November 16 and 17, 2018.

Tech rehearsal will be held on November 13 and dress rehearsal on November 14.

The "Sonoran Skies" band will serve as the accompanying ensemble for vocalists (solos or groups) and small vocal/instrumental duos, trios, etc. This is a great opportunity to perform your favorite pop music from 1950 to 2000 in a live setting with a live band.

 

Auditions

  • March 6 from 4:00 to 5:00 PM and March 13 from 4:00 to 5:00 PM
  • If you can't make either of those times but want to audition, please contact us to try to schedule an alternate time and date.
  • We will provide a piano accompanist or you may use a CD. Bear in mind, though, that the 2018 Celebration of Music (COM) is primarily a live music performance with band accompaniment, and we strongly encourage you to take advantage of the Sonoran Skies 5-piece band to give your music true live quality.

This year's COM will feature songs from 1950-2000 era which are in the pop, rock, folk and country categories. Your performance selections do not have to be the same as your audition songs, but should be of the same genre. The judges will come from varied musical backgrounds, but who have an understanding of the type of music being performed for the COM.

Please note -- although we welcome vocal soloists, we would like very much to have some duets, trios, and combinations of instrumentalists and vocal numbers whose performance can be enhanced by the capabilities of the Sonoran Skies band. A couple of examples:

1) You have a duo consisting of an acoustic guitar and two vocals. How about adding our drums and keyboard; or perhaps adding an electric guitar; maybe even a banjo? We'd even throw in some back-up vocals!

2) You and a friend would love to sing a song by the Beatles, but need more vocals, an electric guitar, drums, and a keyboard. The band will be happy to help you out!


For a list of suggested songs and to schedule an audition time, please contact Sherry Bennett at 616-450-0328 or dbennettfam@yahoo.com.


If you are selected for the COM, we will work with you to obtain the sheet music or lead sheets in the proper key for you. We will also schedule rehearsal time with the Sonoran Skies during the band's rehearsal time, which is every Tuesday afternoon, alternating between 2:00 - 5:00 one week and 4:00 - 7:00 the next week.
