It's been 5 years since Trapper Felides and Badiene Magaziner shared a stage on Oxygen's reality show, The Next Big Thing: NY. With clients working on Broadway, TV, film, and the recording industry, "Trappy" has been hailed by the New York Post as "the go to voice coach for pint-sized triple threats," and "Bay" ripped up the international opera world until landing back in NYC on the faculty of her alma mater, Juilliard. The two met 13 years ago at a fundraiser event that Trapper was producing for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. They shared an immediate bond over the cause, as Badiene had lost her son Erik to leukemia in 1993. When Erik was asked by the foundation for his wish, he said, "My wish is that all the rock stars come together and sing a song to make the world aware of the need for donors and to find a cure. No kid should die waiting for a donor."
Years later it's time to bring back Erik Emanuel Boelkow's memory with a concert in his honor. It's been over 20 years since the last Erik's Wish Concert, and we invite you all to come share in an evening with the finest of Trapper and Badiene's fabulous roster of clients.
