Featuring performances by these promising young musicians.
City Music’s FutureStars Showcase allows young aspiring musicians the opportunity to perform on the stage of the Bull Run Concert Hall with full professional sound stage support provided by Bedlam Productions.
Show your support by purchasing your tickets directly from your favorite performer – they get to keep a portion of their ticket sales – AND – additional City
Music gift card prizes will go to the soloist/duo/trio and the group that sells the greatest number of tickets.
Get your tickets from any of these performers for only $15. Buy NOW, and save. Tickets will be $20 at the door.
Your purchase will also support music in our public schools. City Music donates the proceeds from this and all FutureStars events to public school music programs – nearly $15000 since 2005. The 2016 Showcase proceeds will benefit the Gardner Public Schools.
We’re putting young musicians together to experience the fun of playing in a group and working towards a live performance. You can do it!
Groups will be assembled by age, interest and instrument suitability. City Music staffer and professional musician John Nickerson will oversee each session assisting in repertoire choices and arrangements while supervising rehearsal technique. Players should be able to play basic chords and rhythms on their instruments as the sessions will focus on working together towards a future performance.
8 Weekly 90 minute Sessions held Sundays 4 – 5:30 or 5 – 7:30 pm, in Leominster only.
Sessions Dates run June 29th through August 24th. (no rehearsals July 6th)
Summer Rock ‘n’ Roll School fee is $260.
Hurry! Sign up now! The fun starts June 29th. Only two groups will be formed, so space is limited. Click here for the application.
