Professor Lawrence Watson will present three classes of Berklee musicians in concert. The musical festival starts at 4:00 p.m. with students who have “workshopped" several cover tunes and original compositions and now are ready to share them with the public. There will be some real shining moments where some of tomorrow’s promising artists will showcase their original work.
The 5:00 p.m. show will consist of upperclassman taking a stab at some of the current contemporary music we are hearing on the airways as well as tackling some challenging classics from the book of r&b music.
At 7:00 p.m., the vocal majors enrolled in Foundations of Soul will explore some of the most challenging classics by such artists as Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross, and Smokey Robinson.
The 7:30 p.m. Motown show will be our yearly musical celebration where the Berklee community gets to sing along and party with the band. This year students will showcase several compositions written by Ashford & Simpson and Holland-Dozier-Holland. Great vocal performances will be heard on some Four Tops, Diana Ross, and Temptations classics.
