FutureStars 2008

 

The Pioneer Theatre Guild once again surpassed my already high expectations. I don’t know how they do it, but we’re all fortunate that they do. FutureStars 2008 took place on Saturday, January 19th, and was an event not to be missed.

Bonus! I got to hear and meet guest band My Dear Disco. Concert dates are listed on the My Dear Disco MySpace page.

More details about the show:

FutureStars 2008 | Look what happens when nice Ann Arbor kids go off to the big city. (True, Ithaca ain’t so big, but work with me…) I LOVED that Scott Mooney and Heather Thiry came home to celebrity host this year’s show.

FutureStars 2008 | Ann Arbor’s own My Dear Disco entertained the audience while the votes were tallied. The group is comprised of seven University of Michigan School of Music students (l-r): Tyler Duncan, Bob Lester, Michelle Chamuel, Theo Katzman + Mikey Malis (subbing for Joey Dosik). Two of the band members were apparently camera shy (apologies to Christian Carpenter + Mike Shea).

Myra, these are phenomenal. I wish I could come out to Ann Arbor and have you teach me how to do Stage Photography half as good as you do it.

Hi, Myra! Your photos are stunning. You do absolutely beautiful work. I was one of the judges at this event and I’ve never seen such incredible teen talent before. You did an excellent job capturing their passion for performance.
