The Performer/Songwriter Showcase 2011, an annual concert featuring top finalists from the Fall 2011 Performing Songwriter contest, is one of the premier Songwriting Department events of the year. It showcases the Berklee community's top student writers performing their own material, in the more intimate David Friend Recital Hall setting. As always, winning songs represent the diversity of contemporary song styles: pop, hard rock, folk and roots, alternative, dance, urban, and country. The show is codirected by Mark Simos and John Stevens.
The Berklee Vintage Vocals Ensemble recreates the great jazz vocal group music of the 20th century. Music from the 1930s (Boswell Sisters, Mills Brothers) to the 1960s (Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross) is sung in its authentic style. Associate professor David Scott has been awarded a Berklee faculty fellowship and a Berklee recording grant to transcribe, arrange, record, and perform this music, some of which has been published by Hal Leonard Publishing.
