Title: Celebration of Music
Post by: CWazyTom on September 01, 2017, 09:19PM
Tonight was the debut of the PBS series Celebration of Music.

Celebration of Music is a brand new PBS talent series that showcases and celebrates the best young musical talent present in America today, hosted teenage musical superstar Ethan Bortnick.




In this all-new, inspiring series, Ethan Bortnick will search for exciting young talents across America and play host to them at local PBS studios nationwide - for the chance to win a guest spot performing in front of the cameras on television, and the potentially life-changing opportunity to appear LIVE onstage at one of his concerts in the area in front of thousands!

This series is currently limited to just a handful of markets in 2017, but will soon be expanded across the whole of the United States in 2018 and 2019!

So if you have a musical talent, or know someone who does - no matter whether it's playing, singing, or dancing (or anything else in-between, and either as a group or solo!), please fill out the form below to show off and share your gifts today - and be considered for our upcoming PBS television showcases and live concerts! Once you have, you'll be notified by our expert team shortly!

Lisa Kelly Voice Academy

The first two episodes of the series included FIVE singers affiliated with the Lisa Kelly Voice Academy (LKVA)! Wow, Lisa's student's are well-represented in this competition!

Here are their bios and some clips of them performing on the show. Some are full performances. Some are clips. During the show, they aired Ethan interviewing the contestant that had just performed. Those aren't included in the clips, unfortunately, but hopefully they'll pop up somewhere.

... I wish they had included Molly's interview in the YouTube clip. She talked about Celtic Woman and I thought she was adorable!

Potentially a life-changing opportunity for someone.

I thought I read or heard somewhere that the show was September 10th, but given that contest was for the Florida region, that most likely and understandably got rescheduled.

The voting appears to still be open:

The show is on February 4, 2018:

Don't forget to vote!
