FlashbackFriday: BEST OF THE BOOTH Performers

A few Fridays ago, Conquer premiered our first ever booth contest, “Best of The Booth”, at our partner company, Market America’s International Convention (and also 25th anniversary).

SONGBIRD – RACHEL MENCONI

Cabaret Artist: Rachel Menconi

Songbird is an accurate comparison to the ever talented Rachel Menconi. Rachel is a master vocalist with over 20 years of vocal training and experience; as well as acting, songwriting, directing, and script-writing. A passion, and talent for the arts in every facet.

As a performer, Rachel has 20+ years of experience including originating the role of “Antigone” in “Oedipus: The Musical” (NYC). Other credits include commercials, films, TV shows (One Tree Hill, AMC, Food Network), music videos, and numerous stage credits (Regional, Off-Off Broadway, Off- Broadway, NYC Theatre). Rachel is also a songwriter (15+ years), director, scriptwriter, and an international recording artist (8+ years).

Rachel’s voice is versatile and refined with years of classical training. A strong vocal powerhouse capable of intricate operatic arias, and able to loosen it up just as easily for a more fun and flirty pop sound.

CONQUER ARTIST GETS CALL FROM HOLLYWOOD

Classical Songwriter: Sarah Jane Cion

Sarah Jane Cion gets the call.

When Director Alan Taylor needed a powerful music score to full the scenes of the latest Marvel Comics movie, Thor – The Dark World, he turned to none other than, Conquer Entertainment’s own Sarah Jane Cion.

Regarded as one of the top pianist in the nation, Sarah unique skill set was at the top of the list when it came to reaching out to someone with the talent and experience necessary for such a critical piece of the movie’s production.

Often times, the soundtrack can make or break a movie and in this case, she did not let Hollywood down. With record breaking audiences, it is no wonder she is such a respected and valuable talent within the industry.  And, Conquer Entertainment is especially proud that she has chosen us as one of the platforms to showcase her music.

She has performed with many well-known artists including Clark Terry, Etta Jones, Anita O’ Day, Carmen Leggio and James McBride.  Her music has appeared on All My Children in the Pine Valley Inn scenes.  She performed “Golden Song” in the movie ‘Thor: The Dark World‘.  She has toured all over the world to places like Israel, Portugal, Japan, Germany, Austria and England.  She is also a writer and goes under the pen name “Sally Shields”.  What a talent!

Conquer continues to attract the brightest and most successful stars in the music industry.

In the classical music genre, no one plays the piano like Sarah Jane Cion.  Enjoy her gift at http://www.getconquer.com/sarahjanecion/

Farewell Season To Robert Moody

FAREWELL SEASON

2017 to be Maestro Robert Moody’s final performance

 

 

10 years is a healthy tenure…

From the beginning as Music Director of the Winston-Salem Symphony, Robert wanted the orhestra to work under one artistic leader’s vision, allowing for the possibility of a very short extension of that tenure IF the artistic chemistry and contributions were still vibrant.

Regarding his time with the Symphony, Maestro Moody remarked,

“I’m incredibly proud of all that we’ve accomplished, and all that we still have to accomplish in the coming season and a half.  I will always think of Winston-Salem as ‘home’ and will remain the single greatest fan of the Winston-Salem Symphony.”

During Bob’s tenure, the Symphony has celebrated many significant achievements, including: expansion of the Symphony’s annual concert offerings; addition of special concerts featuring world-renowned superstar guest artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Judi Collins, Renee Fleming, Joshua Bell, and Rhiannon Giddens; and growth of the Youth Orchestras program.

Maestro Moody has been a driving force in establishing Winston-Salem as a nationally-recognized cultural center through his innovative concert programming, engagement of international guest artists, and showcasing of our stellar local Symphony musicians.

If you get the opportunity to witness his stellar orchestra direction in person, you won’t walk away disappointed.  He’ll be moving on to Memphis and Phoenix so for the fans in those areas, you have much to look forward to.  Check your calendars and look for details on the 2017 concert season, which will be a celebration to the local community.

In the classical music genre, Maestro Robert Moody is a very big deal.  Check him out at http://www.wssymphony.org.
