The students from Etc. Music School in Evanston, Ill. will be putting on a free concert in the Waterfront Park Performance Pavilion from 12:30 – 2:30 pm on August 15.
The students learn and perform a varied repertoire of music, from Renaissance-era classical works to vocal jazz to R&B to arrangements of modern pop music. There will be arrangements of several songs including Coldplay’s “Yellow,” Bastille’s “Pompeii,” “Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie and much more.
The Director of the school, Mike O’Mara is a composer, and he also writes/arranges many songs for them. All of the arrangements were written specifically for this group of young singers. To view rehearsal or performance videos, find them on YouTube at youtube.com/user/MikeOMara.
