First-ever Showcase and Citywide Choir Workshop
Drum and piano clinics and a citywide gospel choir workshop.
"Young people make Erie special because they will become our future leaders, business owners, politicians, home owners, and taxpayers. The seeds we plant and how we invest in them now will determine the future of Erie."
Corey Cook, who created LifeThruMusic, said that in his Erie's 40 Under 40 2014 interview back in April. Now at the end of May, he's proving that that's something he truly believes in with Living In Fulfilled Excellence, Inc.'s first-annual Showcase.
"LifeThruMusic has mentored and inspired Erie youth for today's always changing music industry," Corey also said in that interview. "I have been able to show it does not matter where you come from or what you look like, you can do anything you put your mind to if you have the discipline to work hard at it."
The showcase, which kicks off Friday, May 30 at 6 p.m. at the East High School Auditorium located at 1001 Atkins St., does just that.
Both drum and piano clinics -- from 8 to 10 a.m., at $15 a piece, directed by Corey and Darrell Cook, respectively -- as well as a choir workshop -- from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with free admission, although donations will be accepted -- are being held Saturday, May 31, with a concert concluding the event at 6 p.m.
