While MasterSingers Omaha Celebrates their 50th anniversary, Artistic Director/Conductor Dr. Laureen Pickle celebrates her 10th year with the organization. Their first concert this season is "Jazz To the world 10", an a cappella, jazz- inspired take on holiday traditions on December 8th.
All of the numbers on this concert were chosen by member singers from material they have sung over the last 10 years, with one new commissioned piece that Laureen arranged.
The remainder of their season includes "An Evening of Broadway Legend Stephen Sondheim" and "The Beatles, Volume II", chosen because those artists are the greatest musical influences of Laureen’s lifetime!
Laureen took time out of her busy schedule to stop by the KIOS-FM studios and chat with Mike Hogan "Live & Local" about the upcoming concert, the mission of the group, and how anyone can have the chance to participate in a low-stress audition for a spot to sing! (Auditions are Monday, January 6th, 7:00 p.m.)
