Salt Lake Community College students in the songwriting and music production classes will present and perform the songs that they have written and created throughout the semester during the Student Showcase Concerts.
These concerts are free for all to attend. They will be held Tuesday, April 23 at the Black Box Theatre on the South City campus starting at 7:30 p.m., and Thursday, April 24 in room TB 203 on the Taylorsville Redwood campus at 7:30 p.m.
“It is a great opportunity for students to show off what they have learned this semester as well as their natural talent and abilities,” says Thomas Baggaley, assistant professor in the music department.
Thursday’s performance will also be streamed live on SLCC TV and will be broadcasted on channel 17 on Comcast.
“We have many students who will be presenting original songs during these concerts averaging between 18-20 songs at each concert,” says Baggaley.
There will be musical selections from all genres including pop, rock, country and jazz, including both vocal and instrumental pieces.
“These students will either perform their songs personally or have other musicians or even their friends perform them. A great and fun opportunity for all,” says Baggaley.
The concerts will also count toward concert attendance for most music general education classes. Besides hearing the musical talent SLCC has to offer, students are able to get class credit for supporting fellow students.
“It will be a really great concert and we love putting it on every year,” says Baggaley. “We have some really great talent here on campus this year so come support these musicians. You won’t want to miss it.”
