Posted by CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – Saddleback College has its own version of The Voice, a vocal music competition

Dr. Ariel Alexander of the Commercial Music program will present the third annual competition on Thursday, March 3rd at 7:30 p.m. in the McKinney Theatre.  

Participants will perform rock, pop, soul, hip hop, and folk. Last year’s winner, folk singer Maureen Eberhardt, will be a featured performer. The audience is an active participant in this fun and rousing spectacle because they get to pick the winner.  I 

Don’t miss a chance to be a part of this exciting competition when a Saddleback student is crowned as the Saddleback Star. Unusual for a theatre event, audience members are encouraged to use their smart phones to text, tweet, or post and camera flashes aren’t discouraged.  The winner receives a $500 prize.

Admission is $5. For tickets, call 949-582-4656 (Tue-Fri, noon to 4:00 p.m.).

The Department of Music has established a comprehensive program which is considered to be one of the finest in California: a complete lower-division curriculum for transferring music majors, numerous performance groups, private and group lessons, a full concert series with faculty and guest artists, and general music courses. The nationally-recognized faculty is dedicated to performance and to teaching in all areas such as vocal, instrumental, jazz, guitar, and piano.  Other music classes include harmony, musicianship, composition, history, and appreciation of western art music, rock, jazz and world. The new Commercial Music program offers classes in Songwriting, Multi-Track Recording, Intro to the Music Industry, and Commercial Music Ensemble.
