January 2018 - Turn it Up: SIN QUIRIN

Where did your love of music spark from? Well I think I was born with it. My Dad was a singer in a band in Mexico in the 60's. My parents always had music playing at home whether it was traditional Spanish music or The Beatles, The Kinks, The Animals, Creedence Clearwater Revival, etc. But the thing that really solidified it for me was the first time I heard KISS's live album called KISS Alive! I was 6 years old in 1975 when I heard that and that was the exact moment I knew that this was what I was gonna do. Do you remember your first gig? What was it like? My very first "gig", if you could call it that, was my 8th grade talent show. It was horrible and amazing haha. Technically I'm sure we

A magical evening at Popejoy Hall: Rodgers + Hammerstein's CINDERELLA

The story of Cinderella is a childhood memory for both my daughter and myself. The idea that a simple girl can find happiness with someone special while still being herself is a powerful message. We got to live the magical story last night at Popejoy Hall seeing the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical live on stage. I just couldn't stop smiling the moment I walked into the theater.
