SongStudio Student Showcase
July 27, 2017 @ 8:00 pm
Now in its 13th year, SongStudio is an annual one week song writing workshop held each July at the Royal Conservatory of Music, and run by well-known songwriters Rik Emmett, Blair Packham, Bill McKetrick, and Allister Bradley. Each year, the workshop attracts songwriters of all ages and musical genres from right across Canada, the U.S., and sometimes, as far away as the U.K., Taiwan, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Jamaica, and Australia to Toronto to study the art of song writing, and have their songs critiqued and tweaked by some of Canada’s top songwriters. At the end of the week long session, the best of those students are selected to perform their material in a special showcase, hosted by workshop organizers Blair Packham and Bill McKetrick, and backed by an All-Star band led by SongStudio faculty members Rik Emmett (Triumph), Allister Bradley (keys), as well as Niagara Rhythm Section’s Steve Goldberger (bass) and Topher Stott (drums) from the League of Rock.
Come out and see tomorrow’s song writing stars today… as well as performances by some of the faculty.
