There are SO many new faces at Performance High lately!  But how can we all meet, when everyone is in private lessons? Hmm…..

A lot of people are getting to know each other through our showcases, but the last couple of them have been totally booked.  Hmm…

Well, what better way to get everyone together AND have another performance opportunity, than to have a party where you guys are the entertainment?  YES!

Sounds fun to me!  So… We’ll have a Performance High holiday party! 

We’ll start with some mingling, eating, drinking.  Then we’ll get the band up on stage and  YOU can be the live entertainment! 

This will be a combination Legend Makers / Performance High show, open to anyone who wants to sing.  Friends, family, past students, and Performance High teachers are all welcome to get up and sing!

Wait – who are the Legend Makers, you ask?  Good question!  The Legend Makers is a new band we launched just last week.  It’s the very same musicians as the Performance High showcase band… but with a large song “menu”, and designed for company parties.


Here’s how it works:

  • We have almost 100 songs for you to choose from. The song list is a combination of the growing Legend Makers repertoire and some of the Performance High showcase songs we’ve done this year.  
  • Legend Makers songs have synchronized karaoke lyrics on a floor monitor.  Showcase songs do not, unless we’re also adding the songs to the Legend Makers set list.
  • 1 song per person, unless we end up short on signups. 
  • Just twenty bucks to sing.  All proceeds go directly to the professional and very hard-working musicians you already know and love.  The venue also charges a small cover, and our portion of that also goes to the musicians.
  • Rehearsal is the evening of Thu Dec 13.  We’ll go just once through each song.  No particular time slot – show up when you like, 6:30-10:30pm.
  • As songs get claimed, I’ll mark them below.
  • To sign up, email admin@performancehigh.net with your song and how you’d like to pay the $20. Your song is claimed only when your payment is in. Paypal: adrienne.osborn@gmail.com, or credit card for PH students.
