Electric Youth to Perform at Showcase Live at Patriot Place, 6/13; Ensemble Departs on European Tour 6/19
Electric Youth (EY), the international touring ensemble of singer-dancers trained at the Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA), will perform at Showcase Live at Patriot Place in Foxboro on Friday, June 13 at 7:30 p.m. The event is a Bon Voyage Concert for Electric Youth, coming just days before the ensemble departs on June 19th for a three-week concert tour of Austria and Italy. The group's 11th European tour will include a return Fourth of July engagement at Aviano Air Force Base to entertain U.S. Troops and families stationed abroad.
Electric Youth is backed by an eight-piece band of Boston musicians who've performed, recorded and toured with such music legends as Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, Dizzy Gillespie, B.B. King, Diana Ross, The Temptations and Van Morrison. EY's show offers high-energy family entertainment, delivering fully choreographed performances of classic rock, contemporary pop and Broadway hits for audiences of all ages. Audiences at Showcase Live will hear two full sets featuring the best of Aerosmith, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Frank Sinatra, Carrie Underwood and more.
The 12-concert tour will feature shows in Vienna, Melk and Steiermark, Austria, including a performance at Ehrenhausen Castle, benefit concert at Vienna's historic 19th century Odeon Theater and workshop with students at the Amadeus International School. Performances in Italy will include multiple shows in Lignano and Bibione along the Adriatic Coast, concerts in Todi and Montecatini within the Tuscany-Umbria region, and at Lake Como.
Prior to departure, Electric Youth will wrap up the group's 6th professional album. The ensemble and musicians have already laid tracks at Mansfield's MockingBird Recording Studio. As with EY shows, the studio album will include unique renditions of timeless hits.
