Back by popular demand after sold-out performances! Join internationally acclaimed Singer and Voice Teacher, Badiene Magaziner, Juilliard Alumna and current Juilliard Faculty member, for an evening of Broadway and Pop favorites, with Young Voices for Change, a group founded by Badiene to give singers a platform to use their talents for social awareness. The group, comprised of Magaziner Vocal Studio Broadway performers and future Broadway stars, will raise funds for the AJ Project, founded by Christine Perrelli in memory of her son, AJ Perrelli. AJ, a professional dancer, singer, and actor, had just been signed by The Village People when he passed away from an unexpected head injury at the age of 26. Posthumously, AJ saved many lives by donating his organs to worthy recipients. The foundation brings creative artists of multiple disciplines together to create initiatives that promote organ donor education and awareness. Rick Rea, Music Director.
