April 30 – Special Needs Talent winners perform here @ 7 p.m.

Special Needs Got Talent! Showcasing the Prize Winners of the 2016 Northern California Special Needs Got Talent Competition for those with developmental disabilities. Free admission for all.

Three performers walked away as top winners  of the March event. Eleven finalists competed at the event before a FULL HOUSE of over 600 in the audience, 5 prominent judges and our beloved returning emcee Matt Keller, whose poise and humor made the event even more joyful. Entertainment throughout the night also included 10 honorable mention performers.

Michael Valcour of Sacramento, who as a child was unable to speak, won with his baritone-version of “Climb Every Mountain” from The Sound of Music. Michael has used his musical talent volunteering in special education classes, performing at Special Olympics and Easter Seals events, and appearing for Actors for Autism in Hollywood.

Alice Jen from our FCSN Dream Achievers Band, and student at Mission San Jose High School, won for her piano concerto solo, “Yellow River, First Movement”. Alice taught herself piano at age four after seeing someone playing piano on television. She began lessons at age six, has won a number of state-wide competitions, including this year’s US Open Music Competition senior division, and considers music to be her life-long companion and best friend.

Lawrence Wang, growing up at FCSN, won for his solo performance of the Village People’s disco hit, “Y.M.C.A.” Lawrence wore a colorful, yard-wide red and white feathered Indian headdress as he sang and played two instruments–the saxophone and drums–for his rendition. He discovered his musical talent only six years ago when he attended FCSN’s summer music camp. Since then, he excelled in singing, playing the flute recorder; the saxophone, including soprano, alto, and tenor; and drums.

This event is probably most appropriate for grown-ups; however, mature children ages 10 and up are … Continue reading The Motherlode: Songs and Stories from the Vein – A Concert for the Mother
