Thursday night performance of Time in a Bottle is sold out! Uptown Alumni Keely Krause got the last one! ❤️
Shout out to the lame people who forgot we are here to super support our kids.
Uptown Music Collective instructor Gabe Stillman shared his story in our most recent Keeping the Beat podcast interview:
When is the Uptown Music Collective Music at Stonehouse in WILLIAMSPORT? I received a gift card for the Stonehouse that says Uptown-Billy Joel, Elton John from the event at Cellars in Lewisburg benefiting the Ronald McDonald House
Was immediately hooked when I saw UMC perform RUSH. Have not missed a show since, we are so blessed to have those that teach, and the raw talent and music. I am a loyal follower (groupee) 🤣🤣 Get your tickets now.
Mini Motown and Wood and Ivory set up for tonight's gig at Trifecta
“But the fact that the Uptown Music Collective was there where I grew up to foster and nurture that interest turned me into a better musician than I think I would have been if I had grown up somewhere else.” Dylan Rockoff
Did any of y'all see the 3rd Street Blues Band in Bloomsburg Town Park yesterday evening? Great crowd, great band, great weather -- summer in our region doesn't get any better than this! If you made photos of the performance, please share them with Destination Blues.
Becky Blue shares her story of developing into the musician she is today ... with the help of the Uptown Music Collective:
Are you still playing on the river in Lock Haven this Sunday?
Seeking a guitar player that reads music for a musical production of Godspell. This is for a non profit organization that benefits kids. This is a paid position. Any leads or for details, please PM me. Thanks in advance!
Thank you for another awesome performance season! The shows and performers were amazing as usual! Thank you to the staff and instructors who teach the students and make the events possible. Thank you to all the tech monkeys and everyone who works behind the scenes to help make all the events happen smoothly. Thank you to the parents of these talented youth for supporting your children and for sharing them with us. Thank you to the students whose hours of learning and practice create amazing and memorable performances. To the graduating seniors, its been fun watching you mature as performers over the years and seeing your talents expand to different areas. When you apply the disciplines of hard work and practice you have been using at UMC you can't help but be successful in your future education and careers. Good luck in your future. See you on the floating stage in Lock Haven soon.
