International Mega Hits! Go around the world with our Group Programs in 2019

It’s the New Year and what greater way to celebrate than taking a trip around the world vicariously through music?! For 2019, Sunburst Rocks Band will grab their passports and learn songs from international artists and bands that inspire young Americans! Your band will get to hand pick their favorite international songs to play, as well as writing original songs, recording and performing our own live concerts. To go with the international music theme, we’re encouraging our young musicians to research their favorite bands and find those who originate from different countries to share with their group.

We also hope to use this season’s theme to help our kids discover how international music has shaped the history and current trajectory of American music and vice versa. Students will focus on developing their band’s essence through designing their very own merchandise, featuring a Q and A with each band during our monthly newsletters, promoting their shows, and more. We’ll also get to perform at unique indoor and outdoor venues big and small, from being under the stage lights during our showcase in May, to busking outside Sunburst for the scholarship fund, to having a jam session in more intimate spaces. We believe one of the best ways to learn is by doing, and to reflect that mission, our projects this season for Sunburst Rocks focuses on planning, booking and promoting their very own show!

Music is a great force in bringing people together and we look forward to spending this season educating our young musicians about the amazing music made across the globe and inspiring them to learn more about cultural diversity!

Our fall theme ‘Pittsburgh Live!’ Runs through December and we’ll start International Mega Hits the first week of January.
