Join Walter Chism, vocal and drum instructor and “The Showcase All Stars” on Saturday, June 2 at their first Party on the Patio at Music Showcase from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. All funds raised will be used to allow children who cannot otherwise afford it, to take music or voice lessons at Music Showcase.

When children take music or voice lessons, a whole new world is opened up for them. Unfortunately, some children who want to take lessons, cannot afford to. That is why the teachers and instructors at Music Showcase have formed “The Showcase All Stars.”

The group, led by vocal and drum teacher Walter Chism, want to raise money for music scholarships. The group will play their first “Party on the Patio” on Saturday, June 2, 2012 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Music Showcase located at 402 Oakfield Dr. in Brandon.

Chism, along with Daniel Swartwood (keyboards and Musical Director), Miguel Oquendo (keyboards and vocals),Shauntelle Holbrook (vocals), Michael Barrow (bass guitar), Antonios Molfetas (trumpet), Kim McCullers (trumpet), Paula Gaskin (vocal) and Josh Harrison (drums) will perform hits such as Don’t Stop Believing by Journey.
The event is free to the public. Donations will be accepted and you can win some fabulous raffle prizes. Hamburgers, hot dogs and soda will also be available for a small fee.

Chism said, “Music and art are the future for kids. It fosters their creativity which helps them have an outlet for expressing themselves.” Chism added, “Music saved my life. I grew up in an urban neighborhood. It kept me out of gangs and trouble because my focus stayed on playing music.”

“The Showcase All Stars” want this first “Party on the Patio” to show off their talents and inspire young musicians to keep practicing so that they can enjoy music their whole life. So, bring a lawn chair to Music Showcase on Saturday, June 2 and enjoy a fantastic outdoor concert. Who knows, maybe your contribution will save or change a life.
