Maine Academy of Modern Music Showcase (rain date)
May 30, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Maine Academy of Modern Music will host a MAMMOTH Brass Band, Rock Chorus, and Strings Pop-Up performance at Congress Square Park on Friday, May 10th from 6-8pm. FREE and open to the public!
ABOUT MAMMMOTH: Where MAMM is already well known for its fun, electric guitar-driven rock programming such as its popular summer camp series, its annual Girls Rock! concert, and the MAMM SLAM battle of the bands competition, the Academy’s new MAMMOTH programs allow the school to broaden its reach across genres and instrument families.
With a name as immense as its musical scope, MAMMOTH consists of THREE major components:
The MAMMOTH Brass Band is a New Orleans style brass ensemble for students ages 10 to 18. This funky, energetic group gives students a chance to perform in a professional setting alongside some of the best musicians in the Southern Maine area.
The MAMMOTH Rock Chorus program brings local children and teens together to rehearse and perform popular songs in an inspiring and supportive setting. In both small and large groups the Rock Chorus will celebrate contemporary and classic rock, R&B, and pop music.
The MAMMOTH Strings offers students a unique chamber music experience. In duos, trios, or quartets young string players will have an opportunity to play in the equivalent of a classical music “rock band”. Under the guidance of local professional musicians and educators, students will have a chance to collaborate with other like-minded young musicians, allowing for opportunities to build on individual skills while fostering a sense of responsibility to their peers. From traditional to folk, pop to rock, students will be actively involved in setting the musical direction of their individual groups.
