Music Stars of the Future organise local Gig

Apr 23 2012

The Lamp Tavern in Dudley will be rocking to the sound of students from Dudley College on Wednesday 25 April at 7.15pm when young musicians and singers perform a mix of music and lyrics ranging from Frank Zappa to Luther Vandross. 

The gig at the popular venue will see young people who are studying music at the college perform as bands and soloists present over 20 different song numbers. There will be a mix of covers and original numbers.

Stacey Woodall, 17 from Dudley who will be performing an acoustic piece with Alex Chilton, explained "I've put in a lot of practice as its pretty nerve-racking performing in front of a paying crowd. A live gig like this does make you push yourself and challenge your abilities, so you put on the best show you can. Stacey is planning a career as a Music Therapist working with young children who have disabilities once she leaves college."

Liz Buxton, the tutor who's worked with the students to polish their acts and get them ready for the event told us "This is a brilliant opportunity to showcase timeless classics and some original material. Our students have a good fan base, but when we get the chance to perform in at the lamp tavern in Dudley, lots of other people get to see how talented our students are."

"Our Music courses are all geared up to give students a mix of theory whilst developing the practical skills they will need to work in the music industry. Rehearsal and performance techniques, along with music composition and listening skills are some of the areas the course covers."

Students joining the course in September will have access to the fantastic facilities in the new Evolve building on Tower street, which include recording studios practice areas and mixing studios.

Tickets can be purchased in advance from Dudley College or you can pay on the door.
