The Edison Theatre is bringing the Long Beach City College Singers back to Mammoth for one night only, on Saturday, April 21 at 7 p.m. Tickets for the special event are $10 for adults and seniors. Thanks to a grant from the Jane Deming Fund, students get in for $5 each. The Jane Deming Fund made the donation in an effort to educate and inspire our area’s youth and introduce them to music to which they are not typically exposed.
The Studio Singers were created by Tom Dustman, Professor of Music at Long Beach City College (CA), to perform and record Jazz and Pop-Style vocal arrangements. This select company of highly- talented singers are auditioned each semester to form one of the country’s premiere college singing groups. The Studio Singers are made up of musicians from all over the United States as well as many International students (Japan, Dominican Republic, South America, Mexico, and Sweden). In addition to their annual Spring Tour, they also perform at the “Holiday Concerts” in December and the “Spring Thing” in May.
“We are excited to have the Long Beach City College Studio Singers returning to Mammoth to join us as part of their Spring Tour,” commented Shira Dubrovner, Artistic Director of the Mammoth Lakes Foundation. “The last time they were in Mammoth they tore down the house. I was awestruck by the sound they created just using their voices!”
Dubrovner intentionally kept the price of admission at a reduced rate so as to ensure the widest possible audience could attend and enjoy the one-night only performance by the Studio Singers.
“We are thrilled that the Jane Deming Fund stepped up to essentially provide scholarships in the form of special student pricing,” added Dubrovner. “Supporting higher education and culture enrichment in the Eastern Sierra is the mission of the Mammoth Lakes Foundation, and this event does both by not only providing exposure to music, but demonstrating for our youth that higher education has its advantages.” –Mammoth Lakes Foundation
