Elon Electric Ensemble’s Songwriter Showcase to take place Saturday, April 30

The Elon Electric Ensemble’s Songwriter Showcase will take place this Saturday at Medallion Plaza.

The Elon Electric Ensemble is taking a new approach to their concert on Saturday, April 30. The Electric Ensemble’s Songwriter Showcase features original music composed and performed by singer-songwriters and other talented musicians in Elon’s Music Production & Recording Arts program in a variety of musical genres and styles.

The showcase will take place at Medallion Plaza and the Electric Ensemble is also partnering with Limelight Records, the student-run record label. Student artists will be performing their own released original music beginning at 7 p.m. Then, the Electric Ensemble will take the stage at 7:30 p.m.

The program consists of songs written together this semester by the members of the ensemble, which is a first for the group. In previous years, they performed songs written by individual songwriters within the group.

The Electric Ensemble was inspired by the new Beatles Documentary “Get Back” to create all of the music for the show over the last couple of months. This documentary shows The Beatles’ journey in writing and rehearsing 14 new songs, planning their first live concert in more than two years. The documentary includes iconic performances including a rooftop concert at London’s Savile Row.
