July 21 - Songwriter's Soiree

ATTENTION SONGWRITERS/SINGER SONGWRITERS AND ORIGINAL MUSIC LOVERS!

The coveted Guitar Pull. Long since the ‘after party and back stage’ tradition at prestigious festivals and concerts, where the artists/writers let their hair down and play what suits them…try out new songs in a welcoming environment and network in such a way that it builds co-writing and co-gigging friendships. So how cool would it be to take that to another level?

This summer…in Knoxville, TN, Modern Studio presents The ‘Songwriters Soiree’. A combined workshop and Q&A about the music business and songwriting, a short set concert performed by Writer’s Block Radio Program host/program director, music industry consultant/career coach and Award Winning Singer Songwriter, Karen E. Reynolds, and the evening will end with a traditional guitar pull including any attendee who wishes to perform (doesn’t have to be a guitar…can be a keyboard, banjo, etc. But must bring your own instrument). You will learn more about the business, receive kind and constructive critique, meet and network with other artists, as well as, share your own music with an interested and listening, audience. Cost is $10 per person.

There once was a time when music videos killed the radio star and propelled amazing music into our ears and eyes. It was a time of visual performance art and a time when the M in MTV meant music. Let’s go back in time as we share some of our favorite hits from the decades of synth-pop, new-wave, alternative-nation, hair metal and more.

ABOUT THE PLAY

Five friends secretly convene in the middle of the night to act out the tragic tale of Julius Caesar. They soon become swept away as their own prejudices and personal vendettas begin to parallel the lives of the characters in distant Rome. Alliances and rivalries are turned upside down when the fun of play-acting takes a serious turn as Shakespeare’s poignant drama begins to hit home.

Five actors with no set, no costume changes, and only candlelight bring the essence of this classic play vividly alive with the sheer theatricality of this all too timely story.
