Because our live bi-monthly youth open mic – Youth On-the-Mic – was cancelled due to social distancing, we are presenting a virtual, live from home edition. We have 13 young performers who shared videos of them performing at home. There are 14 songs performed in total.
Youth On-the-Mic is a presented in by The United Theatre and The Knickerbocker Music Center as part of their collaborative RI Philharmonic music education program. A special thanks to local music educator Tom Foley at The Band Room. Youth On-the-Mic is an alternative to the many adult open mics out there. These events provide kids and teens with a place to play and a community of music lovers eager to hear them. So, why not keep it going even if we’re all stuck at home.
