This is the evening to see Berklee's up-and-coming vocalists and instrumentalists at the college proven to be the training ground for renowned artists, such as Natalie Maines (Dixie Chicks), Rachelle Ferrell, Melissa Etheridge, and Juan Luis Guerra. Eight singers were chosen from over 100 students who audition for a spot in the concert. Songs that will be performed include, among others, Déjà vu, by Beyonce; This Cant Be Love, by Diana Krall; In The Stone, by Earth, Wind & Fire; and Let Him Fly, by Patti Griffin.
Singers Showcase concludes the 2006 - 2007 Sovereign Bank Music Series at Berklee, an exciting eight-concert series that featured Sweet Honey in the Rock and Cornel West, Marcus Miller, a Stevie Wonder tribute, and more. All shows at the 1,200 seat Berklee Performance Center sold out or sold close to capacity. The series will re-launch by kicking off the Beantown Jazz Festival in the fall of 2007.
Berklee College of Music was founded on the revolutionary principal that the best way to prepare students for careers in music was through the study and practice of contemporary music, be it hip-hop, rock, jazz, country, gospel, electronica, Latin, or funk. For 60 years, the college has evolved constantly to reflect the state of the art of music and the music business. With over a dozen performance and nonperformance majors, a diverse and talented student body representing over 70 countries, and a music industry "who's who" of alumni, Berklee is the world's premier learning lab for the music of today and tomorrow.
