And that's not all... TPC's Josh Keller is the music director! Two nights only: June 4 and August 13

"We have an incredible cast (featuring four TPC students: Hailey Clack, Robyn Hubbard, Elizabeth Foster, and Coletta Manske!), a five piece band and it's a great retrospective of theatre. It's a very fun gig as I get to create the show as well as direct and choreograph. I am sooo very fortunate to have Josh on board as my music director! Tickets are on sale now at http://goo.gl/2JMi9t and it is reserved seating" -Kathy Gibson

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT / CONGRATULATIONS: For the past few months, 17 of our students have been competing in the nationwide PBS talent series: the Celebration of Music, hosted by Ethan Bortnick. They have performed in two televised editions, and last week came together at Civic Theater for the West Michigan area finale. Your votes were counted to discover the winner...

Congratulations to The Piano Cottage's very own GIANNA STANSELL!

We are so proud to have this talented young lady as a voice and piano student, and we wish her luck as she moves on to the next round in LA! You rock, Gianna!

Both of the televised editions of Celebration of Music from WGVU are now available online in case you missed them: Episode 1 and Episode 2!

And great job to everyone who competed, your talent and hard work is evident, and we hope to see you all achieving your dreams in the near future!
