Lizottes Showcase Wrap Up
National Music Academy Student Showcase 2016!
NMA is so proud of all of our amazing students that performed at our showcase at Lizottes Newcastle on 6/10! It was an amazing night and you can all be super proud of your hard work and preparations that went into the night it truly paid off!
We started with our auditions in June, lots of familiar performers that we have seen at our Live Lounge events and students that do Gig Opportunities with us as well as new faces that have been working really hard to be able to perform rocked up at NMA B and blew us away with their talent.
The Showcase was an amazing success and we are so proud of all of our students that performed last night. A massive thank you for everyone who attended last night and donated to the raffle to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis NSW!
This Showcase was one of the BEST Showcases NMA has put on in the past 8 years. It has taken us years of building our NMA Family to be able to consistently grow young artists in the Hunter.
We are so humbled that we had the opportunity put on an amazing show for you last night.
A huge thank you to all of our Sponsors for donating some amazing prizes on the night for you to take home as well as Thierry Boudan for taking some amazing photos on the night for all of you to take home a special memory from the Showcase.
Also a big thank you to all of the house band on the night without you guys last night’s show could not have been the success it was. You are all great assets to the NMA Family and we really appreciate all of the hard work you put into all of your students and the huge value you bring to their lives. You should be super proud of the way you handle yourselves as Mentors and as Industry Professionals.
