Spring came early this year as Hedreich started the 2013 concert year off on the beautiful island of Kauai. St Michaels was the host of not only two evenings of the finest Jazz but also two Jazz Masses featuring the choral and instrumental arrangements of Grammy Governor Matt Lemmler. All four performances featured incredible international talent in both instrumental and vocal music. Hedreich delighted the crowds with her usual aplomb and charm, even pulling out some mad scat skills together with the phenomenal Greta Matassa.
Music, drama and dance, that’s what it’s all about coming up to the new school year. Hedreich has launched M&A, a performing arts school without walls to take music and the arts directly to the people! In addition to doing seminars and workshops for adults and teens, M&A gives Hedreich the opportunity to share the gift of music with the younger set. Focusing on children ages 2 to 12, Hedreich has created a set of classes to introduce children to basic theory and technique in singing, dramatic interpretation and creative movement and dance. In a fun and nurturing environment, even the most bashful children build self-esteem and gain confidence not only for performance but for life. Because the classes can be individually tailored to meet the needs of a specific age group or student sub-set, M&A can offer the benefits of ongoing fine arts education to smaller schools and home-schooling centers as well as in classes or special projects for after-school programs or larger campuses. This coming semester’s master syllabus has some great song and dance highlights so if you miss your favorite episode of Glee, keep an eye out for an M&A class or performance near you!
“Song About…” closed yesterday in the SF tv’s Roboclip top twenty–an amazing performance for a new video from a “new” artist in it’s first week! If you haven’t seen it yet, have a look and share it with your friends. And if you want to see it live, come on out to Murg, SG’s historic Sagibeiz tomorrow night. Hedreich and the Boyz –Greg Galli on keys, Randy Müller on guitar and Jost Müller on cajon–will be heating up the cool autumn night!
January is customarily the time when our artist can relax, review and rejuvenate. That was almost the case. She relaxed at the piano while composing, reviewed and re-reviewed graphics and artwork for the upcoming CD and rejuvenation–well, making music rejuvenates! Now, gearing up for some more studio work with Gölä as well as upcoming performances with party bands Just Jazz and the Gary Scott Band, 2010 is off to a running start. Additionally you can start to look for performances in your area to promote the upcoming CD. Check back soon so you don’t miss anything!
If women are good at multi-tasking then Hedreich is definitely one of the pros. In addition to finishing up the CD project, preparing for the Inspritational Singers’ November 22nd annual concert and working on repertoirs for 3 other upcoming performances, Hedreich is looking into the future, planning the CD launch and a couple of other gigs hopefully in a neighborhood near you. As a matter of fact, if your neighborhood happens to be in Basel, come on out to Tibiz this Saturday where Hedreich will be special guest along with Nubya, Guitarist Randy Müller and “da man” on the keys, Greg Galli. It starts at 9PM and if we’re lucky, there’ll be no police action. In the meantime, for all the up to the minute updates join Hedreich’s Facebook fansite. All music, all the time!
