On Wednesday, November 15, 2017, the Music Resource Center Cincinnati will be hosting its quarterly live music series. The Sampler features performances by MRC’s aspiring recording artists, vocalists, and musicians. The event is FREE, open to all ages and held in MRC’s sleek space, The Venue. The Sampler grants exclusive access to the latest music from the center’s diverse community of teens in grades 7-12, who may one day be the music industry’s next innovators.
“Music Resource Center’s youth take great care in developing their songs and learning about music,” says MRC Program Manager, Nick Rose. “It’s amazing to see them bounce their creative lyrics and beats amongst our teaching staff. Providing members with an opportunity to bring their ideas to the stage feels like the perfect way to celebrate how far they’ve come as young artists.”
Doors open to the public at 5:30 p.m. and free parking is available in the lot behind MRC. Prior to show-time, a casual dinner graciously provided by Snack in a Sak will be served in The Venue between 5:30-6:00 p.m., where guests can mingle, meet MRC’s dedicated staff and volunteers, and learn how MRC’s programs empower the musical ambitions in teens from Cincinnati’s neighborhoods. The Sampler is just one example of the progress made at MRC through private lessons in areas of voice, guitar, piano, and drums, as well as mentoring from experienced industry professionals. The Sampler is a grand opportunity to witness raw talent nurtured daily at MRC. Performances begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. and end at 7 p.m.
"I love how our Sampler brings together people from all walks of life students, volunteers, donors, and staff share a meal and celebrate the music being created at MRC.” Says MRC Founder and Executive Director, Karen D’Agostino.
