INSPIRE: Youth is a service/performing group directed by Michael Sackett and Hillary Abplanalp made up of exemplary teenagers from all over the Phoenix, Arizona Valley who perform only the best, inspiring music. They are a fun group of great kids who love music and are directed in vocal technique, stage presence and musicality. They rehearse on Thursdays from 7 to 8:30pm in NE Mesa. Michael Sackett and Hillary Abplanalp are always on the look out for new talent to add so please contact us and send super stars our way. We have big tour plans for the future to make a difference and share music internationally. We are excited to be given the mantle to continue the work of Tim Felicia’s “Light” performing group. Auditions will be held again in January 2014.
The talented youth were selected by a vocal audition process held in August of 2013 and their debut performance was “Keep Holding On” at the Voice of the East Valley competition on September 28,2013. The evening was a fundraiser for the Olive Osmond Hearing Foundation and Stems from Love. The youth, with the adult group, were involved in their first service project on September 28,2013 where they went to Children First Academy in Phoenix, a school for homeless children, and organized the library. Auditions for this group will be ongoing with a goal of inspiring through music and service while training and perfecting performance skills, vocal technique, stage presence, musicality and confidence for the participants.
