Midwest Young Artists will be trying something new this summer. The MYA Summer Rock Experience has no fee and no application, we just want students to show up and have a good time. MYA invites all instruments and even vocalists to join Mark Adamczyk for five Thursdays this summer starting on June 21. Held at the MYA Center in Highwood, we'll be rocking out with our instruments and voices and pushing musical boundaries. "Rock and Roll," "Rhythm and Blues," "Hip-hop," whatever you want to call it, we'll be trying it: and yeah, with riffs, with microphones, with grooves, with a strong back-beat, with solos, and definitely with attitude. Join our "Chamber Jam" and challenge yourself as we give entirely new meaning to the term "ensemble playing." Besides no fee and no application, there is no audition, but students should be able to read music. Come for any one Thursday or come for five. And don’t wonder what it will be like, come and find out!
Heading up the Rock Experience is University of Illinois, Urbana graduate Mark Adamczyk. He has been actively involved with young people and music since he received certification from the Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, NJ. Mark works with over a hundred children each week, between instrument lessons and the Music Together classes he leads all over Lake County. He performs, with his guitar and his songs, at family events for area park districts. Mark is a composer of stage musicals at the nationally famous Theatre Building Chicago Writers Workshop and can also be caught gigging around the Chicago area performing jazz and rock.
Please join Mark Adamczyk and learn something new this summer! Check out our “trailer!”
The MYA Summer Rock Experience will meet at the MYA Center from 7-9pm, Thursdays, June 21 through July 19, 2012.
