INSPIRING YOUNG MINDS BACKSTAGE AT AMERICAN BANK CENTER

12/12/2012 1:18 PM -

 

LOCAL GIRLS MUSIC PROGRAM LEARN FROM EVENT PROFESSIONALS

(Corpus Christi, TX, December 12, 2012) Fourteen local girls from the Chicas Rock Music Camp, a local creative music program designed to build self-esteem and provide girls positive outlets through music and art, toured the American Bank Center and visited backstage with performers of the Corpus Christi Concert Ballet’s The Nutcracker on December 2, 2012. This visit concluded the 2012 speaker’s series for the group.

"We wanted the girls to meet women for this speaker series this month from all different jobs in the professional world,” said Kristen Bily, Public Relations/ Volunteer Coordinator for Chicas Rock Music Camp & Turntable Academy. “We thought of the American Bank Center as an ideal place for our final piece to the series because we wanted the girls to learn the ins and outs of what makes a show great from the artist to set up. But more importantly, we wanted them to meet a woman that helps put it all together and appreciate the work and effort it takes to contribute to one awesome show."

The girls were able to tour the building and go behind the scenes where the public usually is not able to access. SMG American Bank Center’s Marketing and Media Relations Manager Samantha Koepp discussed her role in the events that take place at the building while giving a tour of the arena and convention center. Corpus Christi Concert Ballet performer Amiee VanWinkle took the girls backstage of the Selena Auditorium to give them a chance to speak with some of the performers before their Nutcracker performance.

“Chicas Rock creates incredible opportunities for these motivated girls who are so excited to do what they love, making music, and we were thrilled for them to include us in their speakers series ” said Samantha Koepp, SMG American Bank Center Marketing and Media Relations Manager. “ The girls were truly an inspiration and we look forward to another opportunity to help them achieve their dreams.”
