Once a week, students will meet for a 2 hour rehearsal, preparing for the upcoming concert at the end of the season. Similar to the Sunburst Rocks program, The Suntones will run all year with new themes and set lists for the Fall, Spring and Summer season. Unlike any other program at Sunburst School of Music, The Suntones focuses only on singing, making the voice the instrument for all sounds, whether it be drums, keys, guitar, horns, etc.

Fall 2018 Theme: Pittsburgh Live!

Pittsburgh Live

This school year our group programs will be digging into the music scene in our hometown! Together we’ll be learning songs from local artists and big names touring through Pittsburgh in 2018, as well as writing songs, recording and performing our own live concerts. To go with the live music theme, we’re encouraging our young musicians to get out and see music in their community and to get on stage themselves as much as possible. Because this season is all about emphasizing live performance, our groups will have an extraordinary number of performance opportunities big and small, from being under the lights at our showcase in December, to busking outside Sunburst for the scholarship fund, to jamming out during our annual halloween party and more!

We also hope to use this season’s theme to help our kids peek under the hood and learn more about how live music really works including booking venues, designing merchandise, promoting their shows, and running sound and lights. 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!

Live 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 community in Pittsburgh and helping them become a part of it!
