Turn'er Up! Performance Groups

Turn'er Up! is a program that creates opportunities for students from the Turner Guitar Studio to perform as a member of a band or choir. Turn'er Up! began with Candice Gayle, who started, organized, and directed the group in 2019. Following Candice's death, Turner Guitar staff have continued her vision by expanding the project into two bands (Junior and Senior) and one choir. 

This year, there will be three Turn'er Up! performance groups:
  1. Turn'er Up! Junior
  2. Turn'er Up! Senior
  3. Turn'er Up! Vocal Ensemble

Turn'er Up! Junior

Turn'er Up! Junior consists of a lead singer, guitarists, a keyboardist, and percussionists who work together to prepare and perform a variety of popular music appropriate for their age and skill levels. Examples of music performed by Turn'er Up! in 2019 can be found at the bottom of this page. Turn'er Up! Junior will be a group of younger musicians with a less busy performance schedule. Registration is now closed until 2021.

Turn'er Up! Senior

Turn'er Up! Senior, like the Junior group, consists of a lead singer, guitarists, a keyboardist, and percussionists who work together to prepare and perform a variety of popular music appropriate for their age and skill levels. Examples of music performed by Turn'er Up! in 2019 can be found at the bottom of this page. Turn'er Up! Senior will be a group of musicians in an older age range and with more advanced skills. Registration is now closed until 2021.

 

Turn'er Up! Vocal Ensemble

The vocal ensemble is a completely new addition to Turn'er Up! Lead by Arlyn Manzo, the vocal group aims to help young singers advance their vocal skills, improve music literacy, gain performance experience, and meet new friends all while performing at two different events throughout 2020.
