The story was originally penned by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson first published in 1886. Here are the amazing voices of  Voctave performing a rendition of “Someone Like You” from the Broadway adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde.

    Here’s a clip of American Idol runner up Melinda Doolittle singing “My Funny Valentine”. She is one of the most exceptional talents the show has ever seen. This year 2016 marks the final year of American Idol after a 15 season run. Cheers to the show that made us all think we could be stars and cheers to all the lovers out there this Valentine’s Day.

    Make A Dream Come True

    Savannah Wheeler is one of our favorite music artists at The Music Junction. She is a talented folk artist with a beautiful singing voice who has the ability to make us feel peaceful and at ease. And she also happens to be the sister of Music Junction owner Charissa Vaughan-Wheeler (Really, they look so much alike you would know they were sisters right away!).

     

    Savannah recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund her first professionally recorded EP of original music. For the last six years, she has pushed her talents and tapped into her raw emotions to come up with a collection of songs she calls “Annie’s Dream.”

     

    Savannah writes on her Kickstarter page: “Annie is my alter-ego.  She embraces her emotions.  She feels it, she shows it, she shares it, she let’s it fuel beautiful music and soul-bearing lyrics.  Please help me to share these songs with the world.  YOU are the main ingredient in making this project successful. Thank you for your support!”

     

    Savannah wants to raise $6,000 by March 5. If she doesn’t meet her goal, she does not get any of the money. As an extra incentive, she also has a special promotion that lasts until Thursday, February 12: Los Angeles residents who donate at least $25 will receive homemade apple crisp, it’s a special recipe by Savannah and Charissa’s grandmother. Doesn’t that sound delicious?

     

    In a campaign like this any amount you can give matters. $25 matters. $10 matters. Yes, even $5 will make a difference! We hope you can find a way to give. Yes, we’re biased and want to see Savannah’s dream come true.  But we’re also biased in that we love really good music and want great talent to find a larger audience.

     

    You can listen to Savannah’s impressive SoundCloud page and can like her Facebook page.

     

    Thanks for helping!

    To Walk Or Not To Walk

    We experienced a bit of guilty pleasure reading a recent New York Times article on audience members who walk out of performances.

    On the one hand, The Music Junction educators are trained professionals who have performed in front of live audiences. We also host recitals so our students can apply the concepts learned from their music lessons. We would be hurt if anyone tried to walk out of our performances.

    And yet, we’ve all wanted to do it at some point!

    “Wherever films are shown, plays are presented, operas are mounted and rock stars strut the stage, there are unhappy spectators squirming in their seats and working up the courage to bolt,” the New York Times article states.

    The New York Times polled its readers on social media and found the issues/problems that prompt a walk out.  We were not surprised to read that extreme violence was a common issue for movies and irritable, off-pitch performers were factors in musical performances.

    Generally, the etiquette is to remain seated during live performances and wait to sneak out during intermission. Sometimes, however, the thought of staying in your seat one moment longer is too much to bear.

    At least it was for Geoffrey Glick who told the New York Times what happened to him when he saw a production of “Macbeth”:

    “I stopped watching the actors and began looking at the audience. A significant portion were glancing at their watches or looking uncomfortable. As soon as I got up, another four or five did, too, and by the time I reached the lobby, there were about 20 or 30 people behind me.”

    We have to believe that’s one walk out that everyone noticed.
