“We Live Dance” is a showcase of original choreography from nearly a dozen local choreographers.  Dances feature performers of all ages from three years old to adult.  This performance is a showcase of a wide range of dance styles including ballet, tap, jazz, modern, hip- hop, lyrical, and musical theatre.  This is the 26th year that MMPAC has put on their annual showcase.  It is truly a show for all ages and each year it comes close to selling out.

Kimberly Price is the Director and owner of MMPAC, “Performing at the Weinberg is a special experience for our dancers and for the audience.  The audience grows each year because people come back to simply enjoy seeing dancers who love what they are doing.  Our alumni have gone on to professional careers throughout the world.  It’s a chance for Frederick to see local talent that often ends up traveling the world performing.”

Brianna2Featured in the performances will be MMPAC’s pre-professional reparatory company Dance FX. Brianna Alico, is a member of Dance FX and will attend Columbia University in New York City on full scholarship to pursue her dream of studying biochemistry, while also continuing to pursue her passion for dance in the big apple. “My time at MMPAC and my time dancing and performing has taught me so much about life, responsibility, and myself. I believe you can see that when we perform,” says Ms. Alico.

MMPAC is committed to instilling a life long love of the arts and giving back to the community through dance.  Each year MMPAC performs charity concerts at FCC, performs at local nursing homes and dances at community festivals and openings throughout Maryland.

Ronnie Milsap in Concert http://www.weinbergcenter.org/12010/ronnie-milsap-in-concert/ http://www.weinbergcenter.org/12010/ronnie-milsap-in-concert/#respond Sun, 03 Apr 2016 19:58:14 +0000 http://www.weinbergcenter.org/?p=12010 Continue reading ]]> “Nashville’s own performer.” -The Country Music Encyclopedia

Ronnie Milsap ranks as the pre-eminent country soul singer of his generation. He also represents much more than any two-word definition can convey: a humble, overtly friendly fellow with a talent as vast and multi-dimensional as the American South. Milsap provided country music with one of its most important voices, as the genre was moving beyond its rural roots into the mainstream of modern entertainment. Country music couldn’t have found a man more suited to lead the charge. Steeped in the mountain music of the North Carolina hills and schooled in classical piano, Milsap early in life found inspiration in a wide variety of music. Even as he mastered Beethoven and Mozart, his heart belonged to hardcore country and rhythm-and-blues — music he heard beamed from powerful radio stations located in Nashville. Those earthy sounds about life and love provided a young, impoverished blind boy with a connection to a world beyond the harsh reality of his daily existence.

Awards: Named male vocalist of the year by the Country Music Association, 1974, 1976, and 1977; album of the year awards from Country Music Association, 1975, 1977, and 1978; named entertainer of the year by the Country Music Association, 1977; Grammy Awards 1986, for “Lost in the Fifties Tonight,” and 1987 (with Kenny Rogers) for best country vocal duet.
