In March of this year, the Music Resource Center Cincinnati was chosen as sole beneficiary of the SUA Talent Show at nearby St Ursula Academy. Organized by the Sophomore Student Council, the engaging yet lighthearted night featured entertainment from SUA students, plus two artists from MRC. All proceeds from admission went directly to MRC—with additional donations made by willing audience members. The single night raised just shy of $900! MRC Studio Manager Max Raphael accepted the check on
behalf of the Center at an SUA pep rally. “It was touching to see how generous the girls were for thinking of us,” he remarks. “It’s great to find such support from right within our community. Beyond that, I was impressed by how well directed—and attended—this night was. And this was only their first! I’m pleased they invited us to perform; we would definitely do it again.”
The kickoff was headed by SUA students Kenzie Corbin and Madeleine Pescovitz, along with the school’s Sophomore Student Council. Taking the place of the school’s annual Battle of the Bands, the night still saw a sizable attendance, with talented performances ranging from singing, dancing, to acting. MRC’s Tyler Spears sang and played acoustic guitar, while Jacob Turner closed the night on his own, with his Hip-Hop single, “Glass Door”, recorded at MRC.
MRC would also like to thank St Ursula faculty Chuck Strubbe and Dave Stickel, for overseeing and emceeing the event, along with all who attended this fun and entertaining evening. We are so happy for your support!
