Young Musicians Concert

For over 30 years,  Music On The Divide has presented a concert of local young musicians who apply, audition and then perform before a live audience. We have been treated to delightful and amazing performances by young people who have the disipline to practice, polish and perform pieces on a variety of instruments. Two seasons ago we were treated to a performance by Ariadne Antipa, a world-renowned concert pianist who performed a decade and a half ago in multiple Young Musicians Concerts. Other participants in the YMC have become teachers and professional musicians.

Nick Palance, Tenor

Hailed by critics as the new "American Bocelli", Nick Palance is truly an extraordinary artist. Singer/songwriter, Nick Palance was, born into music, his father a musician and his mother’s family known for building exceptional hand-crafted pipe organs. At six years old, Nick taught himself to play a Hammond organ and at nine discovered the guitar laboring for hours to become proficient in a variety of musical styles. At fourteen he began writing songs and performing with rock bands at clubs throughout Los Angeles. Trained at the Southern California Conservatory of Music where he won a scholarship, he received a degree in voice and a minor in classical guitar.

Nick’s unique repertoire spans five languages and encompasses nearly every musical genre from opera, “popera” and show tunes to rock, pop, oldies, and even a little country as well as his own original compositions. His current project,“Saving Grace” is a collaboration with Oscar and Grammy award-winning producer, arranger and composer, Jorge Calandrelli. The powerful and romantic original songs you will find here are the latest additions to this project.

September 8, 2024

Fronted by a tight, powerful horn section and soaring soulful vocals, this acclaimed band is driven by an edgy rhythm section that lays down an irresistible groove. HipNosis delivers a polished performance that ranges from Funky Jazz and Soul through Blues and Rock with a bit of Gospel thrown in for good measure. The original arrangements, soloists, and top tier musicianship keep the sound fresh and compelling.

This will be an outdoor concert at the Georgetown School Amphitheater in the woods.

Richard Smith

Born in Beckenham, England, Richard picked up the guitar at five years old after watching his father playing a version of "Down South Blues." His father taught him the fingerpicking style and Smith was soon recognized as a child prodigy. As a kid he could play the entire discographies of Chet Atkins and others sharing the stage with his idol when Atkins invited Smith to play with him at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London.

He formed the Richard Smith Guitar Trio with his brothers Rob and Sam before marrying American cellist Julie Adams and moving to Nashville, Tennessee in 1999. Smith performs both as a solo act and a duo with his wife. His repertoire includes country, bluegrass, blues, ragtime, folk, jazz, pop, and classical music.
