SPC’s emerging artists will host showcase concert on Monday, Nov. 28

St. Petersburg College Music Industry Recording Arts (MIRA) will host MIRA Emerging
Artist Series Fall Showcase Concert at 7:00 p.m. Monday, Nov. 28 at the Palladium Theater
Side Door, 253 5th Ave. N. St. Petersburg.

Artists from the MIRA program at SPC will perform original music and eclectic covers, including songs by Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Paramore, and Hiatus Kaiyote.

The performers have become sought-after acts, representing the diversity, excellence and innovative spirit of the MIRA program at SPC. The music program at SPC focuses on empowering students through creative studies and professional experience.

“As a professional musician and music school graduate, I can honestly say that I believe this program would be hugely beneficial to any student pursuing a career in the arts,” said Thievery Corporation Drummer Jeff Franca. “Whether on stage, or behind the scenes, the skills acquired by enrollment in this program are completely necessary and applicable to the modern music industry.”

Last year’s showcase was sold out. General admission is $5 and free for SPC students, faculty and staff.

Special free admission is also offered to community members who donate instruments in the Recycled Tunes instrument drive, Nov. 14-18 at St. Petersburg College campuses.
