July 2011 – Viva Las Vegas
The recital performance of Viva Las Vegas was presented by the Sigsana Performing Arts students, located right here in Inglewood.
Singsana offers musical study of a wide variety of genres, such as pop, jazz, musical theatre, classical, rock and anything else you can think of. Students can sign up for private 30 minute or one hour classes on a weekly basis and can enroll in voice lessons, piano lessons or theory lessons. Many students choose to partake in more than one of these options.
Instructor: Lauren Ireland
Lauren travelled to New York with St. Mary’s High School Jazz Choir to work with Phil Matson, which culminated in a performance at Carnegie Hall, where Lauren had a solo. Lauren was selected as a back-up vocalist for Paul Brandt’s CBC Television Special in 2003.
Many of Lauren’s students have placed first or first runner up at competitions such as the Kiwanis Music Festival, Calgary Junior Idol, and the Stampede Youth Talent Search.
