On Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 2 p.m. the League of Volunteers, the League of Volunteers (LOV) and the Newark Arts Council are excited to present their annual gala showcasing local talent, to be held at Thornton Junior High.
This 29th annual event will feature the Newark Memorial Advanced Choir under the direction of Joanne Hong, performing choral music for the publicÕs entertainment. Also, on the program is TruDance, a dance studio in Union City founded July 2011 by sisters Alicia Miranda and Sarita Trujillo. TruDance offers jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop, lyrical, and contemporary dance; their students will present a wonderful show.
Fremont resident Knuti VanHoven is a singer songwriter with a long list of stage credits, mostly in musical theatre. Knuti will be entertaining you with both old favorites and her own compositions.
The very talented Dream Achievers ensemble rounds out the afternoon. The ensemble consists of exceptional young musicians with autism. Founded six years ago, the members are Lawrence Wang, (saxophone/flute/drums/vocals), Alice Jen (piano), and Gregory Hebert (guitar/vocals). Their repertoire includes more than 300 songs that range from classical music to jazz/hip hop, Latin, kid-songs, and traditional cultural music.
