Congratulations to Shoreline music student Trevor Eaden, who took first place in two regional singing competitions this spring. In March, he won the Classical Voice/College I category (students with 1-3 years of college-level study) at the annual adjudications of the Puget Sound Chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, held at Seattle Pacific University. In April, Trevor was awarded first place in the College/Adult Classical Voice Category at the Performing Arts Festival of the Eastside held in Bellevue. Trevor studies voice with Shoreline Community College music instructor Dr. Fred Lokken, and has participated in the choirs, opera workshop, and two music department Honors Recitals during his first year at the college. Way to go, Trevor!
Everyone is welcome to attend this free concert in the SCC Music Building in Room 818 on Fri., May 29 from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
The Student Afternoon Recital is considered to be a “talent showcase” for our dedicated music students at Shoreline Community College. This is their time to shine in the spotlight and to have an opportunity to perform in front of their peers. Students are chosen by their instructors to perform at the recital. The selection criteria requires students to have been taking private lessons and/or to have been involved in a music ensemble throughout the quarter. This is an invaluable experience for students to build confidence musically through focused preparation, and the opportunity to perform in front of an audience helps them develop their stage presence.
Funk & Groove is Shoreline’s own retro music performance group. They are a contemporary tribute to the funky vibe of the 70s and beyond, performing the hit songs from a variety of genres including pop, jazz, funk, R&B, soul and rap.
Check them out this Thurs., May 28 from 7-10 p.m. at Club Hollywood Casino at 16716 Aurora Avenue North in Shoreline. Minors are welcomed to attend until 9 p.m.
The participants in the Honors Recital were chosen during the Winter Quarter 2015 Student Jury Awards, in which SCC music students taking individual instruction lessons performed before a jury of music faculty to have their musical progress examined and critiqued. Six students received an Outstanding Jury Award designation: David Harris – Piano, Brandon Kiss – Piano, Daniel Siller – Vocals, Kerry Weinrich – Flute, CorriLynn Woods – Vocals, Yan Yunzhi – Piano. Three students received a Dictum Honorable Award designation: Heather Acord – Vocals, Jason Pai – Guitar, Carissa Yip Sin – Piano.
Come celebrate these accomplished Shoreline students with a night of free music!
