From Singers on Stage On Broadway Workshops NYC
From the Assistant Musical Director
“I just returned from a job at the Disney Institute and a lot of people in the audience mentioned they were interested in Singers on Stage. They had read about it on the web and wanted to know details about the workshop. The next morning, I was on a bus riding to an attraction and a lady behind me started describing a group in New York. I turned around and asked her if it was Singers on Stage and she said, ‘Yes.’ Her daughter was interested in applying. You’re all over the place! – Dennis Buck, Broadway musical director (42nd Street), coach and arranger, New York City

I’m thrilled to know you’re offering this workshop again…. You are doing such a good thing with these workshops. It has been one of the most positive influences on Rocky’s life.

Things are going well here in Minnesota for us. Makenzie has been accepted into the Music-Dance-Theatre program at BYU. She is so excited. Only 16 kids got in. Afton Ferguson was there auditioning at the same time as Makenzie, and she was also accepted…. I don’t think it was a coincidence that we came to New York and met you, Gayle Lockwood, Bill Reed and the other staff members and that Makenzie learned how to belt. I don’t think she would have ever considered going to BYU otherwise or even had the confidence to audition with such success.
– Shelly Greimann, Blue Earth, Minnesota
I have some excellent news that I felt compelled to share…. I have just been accepted into Brigham Young University’s MDT (Music Dance Theatre) major!! I am so excited! I love you all.
– Afton Ferguson, St. Simon Island, Georgia
I just wanted to let you know that I’ve just been cast as Nancy in Oliver!… Yay! I have “On Broadway” to thank! All of the changes I’ve been able to make to my performance and auditioning techniques, as a direct result of the workshop, have really made a difference in the way that I present myself. – Robin Orloff, Somerville, MA
The Singers on Stage Workshop was probably the most incredible experience that I have had so far in my life. You were so organized and efficient, you made it so fun and just an amazing experience for the whole cast. Without you, I would never know how much I need to be in musical theatre. I would also never know how much work it takes. You put together a group of the most talented teachers and students that I have ever seen…. I want to say a personal thank you to making me feel so comfortable. You always asked me if I was having fun, if everything was all right. You made me feel like I was going to be okay, when I was really nervous the fist couple of days. – Miranda Jones, Bristol, VT
My trip to New York and the workshop helped me… think about my future…. It made me realize one thing…I have a lot to learn and I can’t wait to learn it. I actually want to go to college for the first time ever. It made me realize another thing: get me outta here!!!
– Sara La Croix, Grand Rapids, Michigan
Everyone and everything was truly amazing and I think most of us are still trying to get over it…. Thank you for getting this idea and making it happen. It has changed my life, and I am sure it has changed everyone else as well. – Katie Voboril, West Lynn, Oregon
“We were looking at having Jessica apply for NYU’s summer program but she was too young. When I asked if they could recommend an alternative, the comment was ‘Try Singers on Stage! I’ve heard good things about their program!’ Are we glad they did! Thank you for offering Jessica the ‘gift’ of participating in your workshop. What she learned and experienced in 10 days was extraordinary! What we, as parents, learned from your staff gave us the foundation to guide her toward her goal of a Broadway career. Jessica is already talking about attending next year!…”
– Jeff and Maryann Peters, Boca Raton, FL
