Music Clubhouse Showcase

It was my son Ryan and his involvement in the Music Clubhouse that I have to thank for today’s post.

Ryan has been involved in the Music Clubhouse (Music and Youth Initiative) program for almost three years. The program, sponsored by Avid Technologies and Berkley College of Music, gives Boston area kids the opportunity to learn, perform and record music in state of the art facilities. Those facilities are built in the YMCAs and Boys & Girls Clubs that host the programs.

At the end of the season about a hundred kids ranging in age from 10 to 18, representing the dozen or so Music Clubhouses in the Boston area descend on the Historic Strand Theater in Dorchester for the Music Clubhouse Showcase to perform for family, friends and supporters of the program.

It was so much fun to see a steady stream of talented young rappers and rockers take the stage with such confidence.

While photographing the show I was struck by the incredible stage presence of so many of the kids. The image above is my favorite from the night. This kid is a performer. The image gallery below contains a few other images from the night. My son’s band is in there somewhere.

And to my son’s band … Ryan, Jose, Alex, Ellemiek, Miaj and Jhoneidy … GREAT Job! You rocked!
