>>IN THIS EDITION OF WUCF ARTISODES, A UCF STUDENT TAKES CENTER STAGE AT THE DR. PHILLIPS CENTER. >>SUCH AN OPPORTUNITY AS THIS IS REALLY PUTTING A SENSE OF DIRECTION IN MY LIFE THAT I WOULD REALLY LOVE TO PURSUE. >>AND THE STORY BEHIND A CHART-TOPPING SONG FROM 1964. >>LOOK, IF THE BEATLES REALLY AREN'T GOING TO DO THAT, THEN MAYBE WE CAN DO IT. AND HE SAID ABSOLUTELY. >>IT'S ALL COMING UP ON WUCF ARTISODES. ♪THEME MUSIC♪ >>MICHAEL FEINSTEIN IS A FIVE-TIME GRAMMY NOMINATED RECORDING ARTIST. HE ALSO MENTORS NEW SINGERS THROUGH THE SONGBOOK ACADEMY. ONE UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL FLORIDA STUDENT HAD THE HONOR OF PARTICIPATING IN THE ACADEMY, WHICH THEN LED TO THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME. ♪PLEASE BE TRUE...I LOVE YOU.♪ >>A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO I HELPED TO CO-FOUND THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK FOUNDATION, WHICH EXISTS TO PRESERVE AMERICAN POPULAR MUSIC OF THE 20TH CENTURY. AND I THINK ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS WE DO IS HAVE AN ANNUAL HIGH SCHOOL SONGBOOK ACADEMY. WHERE YOUNG PEOPLE COME FROM ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES TO TAKE WEEK LONG INTENSIVES THAT BETTER ACQUAINT THEM WITH CLASSIC AMERICAN POPULAR MUSIC. ♪IT'S A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING. THE MOON IS FLYING HIGH.♪ >>THIS MUSIC IS OUR GREAT NATIONAL HERITAGE AND IT IS WONDERFUL FOR ME TO SEE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO HEAR THIS MUSIC AND LOVE IT. AND SO OUR ORGANIZATION IS ONE THAT HELPS TO BETTER ACQUAINT THEM WITH IT AND TO GO DEEPER WITH IT AND HOPEFULLY MAKE IT A PART OF THEIR LIVES FOREVER. >>I PRETTY MUCH BOAST MY FONDNESS FOR THIS MUSIC. YOU'LL SEE ME WALKING DOWN THE HALLS OF SCHOOL SINGING IT OUT LOUD, BELTING SOME G'S OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. IT'S JUST WHAT I LOVE. I GUESS I'D HAVE TO BLAME MY PARENTS FOR MY LOVE OF THE MUSIC OF THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK. GROWING UP FROM A VERY YOUNG AGE I CAN REMEMBER HEARING MUSIC FROM A FRANK SINATRA CD THEY WOULD PLAY IN THE CAR OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER AGAIN. AND THAT MUSIC STILL RESONATES IN MY MIND ALL THE TIME. ♪IT'S DELIRIOUS. IT'S DILEMMA. IT'S THE LIMIT. IT'S THE LUX. IT'S THE LOVELY.♪ MY INVOLVEMENT IN THE SONGBOOK ACADEMY FIRST STARTED WHEN I AUDITIONED FOR THE PROGRAM AND I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE INVITED TO BE A PART OF IT. IT TOOK PLACE IN CARMEL, INDIANA AT THE PALLADIUM CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS. UNDER THE INSTRUCTION OF MR. MICHAEL FEINSTEIN I LEARNED SO MANY GREAT THINGS. I THINK I REALLY HELD ON TO HIS INSTRUCTION ON INTERPRETATION OF THE SONG REALLY GRASPING AHOLD OF THE LYRICS AND FINDING MEANING WITHIN THE LYRICS. >>OKAY, NOW. WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS LIKE THIS. I FEEL A SUDDEN URGE TO SING. THE KIND OF DIDDY THAT INVOKES THE SPRING. YOUR FACE WILL TELL AS MUCH AS YOUR VOICE. >>IT IS AN INCREDIBLE THING TO BE WORKING ALONG SIDE AND UNDER THE DIRECTION OF SOMEONE YOU'VE IDOLIZED FOR SO MANY YEARS. IT'S QUITE A SURREAL EXPERIENCE TO BE ABLE TO STAND ON STAGE WITH HIM, TAKE DIRECTION FROM HIM, BOUNCE IDEAS BACK-AND-FORTH WITH HIM ABOUT MY PERFORMANCE. IT'S SUCH AN INCREDIBLE THING THAT I'M JUST SO GRATEFUL FOR. >>LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, PLEASE WELCOME, MICHAEL FEINSTEIN. >>HELLO ORLANDO! HOW ARE YOU? ♪LUCK IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN A LADY TO BEGIN WITH. LUCK BE A LADY TONIGHT.♪ >>OH I'M ABSOLUTELY THRILLED TO HAVE BEEN INVITED BACK TO PERFORM WITH MR. MICHAEL FEINSTEIN. HE'S JUST SUCH A CONSUMMATE PROFESSIONAL. HE IS JUST A MASTER OF HIS CRAFT. ♪YOU'LL HEAR ME SAY THAT I'M SO LUCKY TO BE LOVING YOU.♪ >>JUST GETTING A FEW MOMENTS, LET ALONE A COUPLE HOURS TO WATCH HIM PERFORM AND DO WHAT HE DOES BEST IS, BASICALLY JUST A MASTER CLASS IN ITSELF. IT'S AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE AND ANYTHING I COULD TAKE AWAY FROM THAT, AN OUNCE, A WORD, A SINGLE IDEA, A LESSON IS SOMETHING I CAN BE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL FOR AND WOULD HOPE TO APPLY TO TONIGHT OR ANY PERFORMANCE IN THE FUTURE. >>NOW TELL US WHERE YOU'RE IN COLLEGE. >>OH, I GO TO UCF. I'M STUDYING MUSICAL THEATER. THAT'S RIGHT. DOES EVERYBODY KNOW THE RESPONSE WHEN I SAY, "GO KNIGHTS!" VERY, VERY GOOD. OKAY, GREAT. >>SO EVERYBODY BUT ME. >>OH, NO. DO YOU WANT TO TRY IT? SO WHEN I SAY, "GO KNIGHTS!" YOU SAY "CHARGE ON!" DO YOU WANT TO HELP HIM WHEN I SAY IT? OKAY? READY. 1,2,3 GO KNIGHTS! >>CHARGE ON! >>HAHA BEAUTIFUL. THERE WE GO. TONIGHT I WILL BE PERFORMING "I HAVE DREAMED" WHICH IS COMPOSED BY RODGERS AND HAMMERSTEIN. IT WAS ORIGINALLY COMPOSED FOR THE MUSICAL "THE KING AND I" ♪AND I HAVE DREAMED WHAT A JOY YOU'LL BE.♪ >>NICK DRIVAS IS A BEAUTIFUL TALENT WHO I MET AS PART OF THE SONGBOOK ACADEMY. AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IMPRESSES ME ABOUT HIM IS THAT HE WORKS VERY VERY HARD TO CONTINUALLY GO DEEPER WITH HIS INTERPRETATIONS OF THE SONGS IN A WAY THAT IS THE HALLMARK OF A GREAT TALENT. HEARING HIM TODAY IS REALLY SPECTACULAR; BECAUSE THE GROWTH IS EXCITING AND I FEEL LIKE A GODFATHER. >>♪I HAVE DREAMED.♪ >>IT CONSTANTLY AMAZES ME THE WISDOM OF THESE YOUNG PEOPLE. THEY KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT THIS MUSIC AND THEY'RE SO CONNECTED TO IT IN THEIR SOULS. IT'S AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE TO SEE YOUNG PEOPLE EMBRACE THE MUSIC AND TO KNOW THAT IT WILL GO ON. >>♪THAT BY NOW I THINK I KNOW.♪ SUCH AN OPPORTUNITY AS THIS IS REALLY PUTTING A SENSE OF DIRECTION IN MY LIFE THAT I WOULD REALLY LOVE TO PURSUE. I HAVE A GREAT APPRECIATION FOR THE FACT THAT MR. FEINSTEIN IS ON A MISSION I WOULD SAY TO KEEP THIS MUSIC ALIVE, TO GIVE IT TO EACH GENERATION TO COME. SO, IF THAT PRESENTS ITSELF AS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO DO AS WELL, I WOULD BE EVER SO GRATEFUL TO DO THAT. ♪I WILL LOVE BEING LOVED BY YOU.♪ >>THE PRECEDING STORY IS PART OF WUCF'S AMERICAN GRADUATE INITIATIVE. AS WE BRING AWARENESS TO THE DROPOUT CRISIS AND ENCOURAGE CENTRAL FLORIDA'S CHILDREN TO SUCCEED. AS THE SON OF AN AMERICAN JAZZ MUSICIAN AND AN ENGLISH OPERA SINGER, CLINT HOLMES IS A PERFORMER WHO LEARNED THE FINER POINTS OF SINGING EARLY IN LIFE. >>♪NIGHT AND DAY YOU ARE THE ONE. ONLY YOU BENEATH THE MOON OR UNDER THE SUN.♪ MY NAME IS CLINT HOLMES I AM SINGER, SONGWRITER AND AN ENTERTAINER. I THINK THE FIRST TIME I EVER SANG A SONG I WAS IN KINDERGARTEN AND FOR SOME REASON AT THE END OF THE DAY I TOLD THE TEACHER I WANTED TO SING BEFORE THE BELL RANG AND I SANG HERE COMES PETER COTTONTAIL AND I DON'T KNOW WHY I REMEMBER THIS, BUT I DO AND I SANG IT AND ALL THE KIDS APPLAUDED AND THAT WAS THAT. ♪I'M A CONSUMMATED MAN JUST TRYING TO SNATCH A LITTLE PURITY.♪ I COME FROM A MUSICAL FAMILY MY MOM AND DAD WE'RE BOTH SINGERS. MY MOM WAS A WHITE BRITISH OPERA SINGER; MY DAD WAS A BLACK AMERICAN JAZZ SINGER. MY MOTHER WAS MY FIRST TEACHER IN TERMS OF THE TECHNIQUE OF SINGING AND I DIDN'T WANT TO HEAR IT OF COURSE, BUT SHE WAS MY MOTHER SO I HAD TO. YOU KNOW SHE WOULD GO THROUGH THE VOCAL EXERCISES, MA, MA, MA, MA, MA, MA. ♪SHE LOVE-A-ME, LOVE-A-ME, LOVE-A-ME, LOVE-ME.♪ AND THEN MY DAD TAUGHT ME ABOUT THE IMPROVISATIONAL ASPECT OF MUSIC THAT MUSIC IS FELT, MUSIC IS SOMETHING THAT AT ITS BEST IS FELT. ♪WHO DO, WHO DO YOU YOU THINK YOU'RE FOOLING?♪ GROWING UP AS I DID IN THE 50'S AND 60'S AS THE CHILD OF A BI-RACIAL MARRIAGE WHICH WAS NOT COMMON THEN THERE IS ALWAYS THAT BATTLE TO FIGURE OUT WHERE YOU FIT, WHERE YOU BELONG. AND AS SOON AS I FIGURED OUT THAT MUSIC WAS WHERE I BELONGED AND WHERE I FIT AND WHERE PEOPLE WOULD STOP ASKING ME QUOTE ON QUOTE WHAT ARE YOU? AND JUST GO WOW, THAT WAS GOOD I THINK THAT WAS A LARGE PART OF WHY I HAVE DONE THIS MY WHOLE LIFE BECAUSE IT IS A REAL PART OF WHO I AM. ♪I'VE BEEN LOVING AND LOVING AND LOVING. I'M EXHAUSTED FROM LOVING SO WELL.♪ I STARTED IN WASHINGTON DC I WAS IN THE UNITED STATES ARMY CHORUS. I WAS THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN IN THE UNITED STATES ARMY CHORUS BACK IN THE SEVENTIES AND WHEN I GOT OUT OF THE ARMY I STAYED IN DC BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE I WAS STATIONED AND STARTED PERFORMING THERE AND THEN IN 74' I HAD MY HIT RECORD MEDLEY. MY NAME IS MICHAEL. I GOT A NICKEL. THAT WAS MY RECORD AT 74', AND THEN I LEFT FOR LOS ANGELES AND THAT'S WHEN I REALLY STARTED TOURING. ♪GOOD TIME BABY, HAVE A GOOD TIME.♪ I'VE DONE A LOT OF COURSE HERE IN LAS VEGAS; I'VE DONE A LOT IN ATLANTIC CITY. THERE WAS A PERIOD OF TIME WHEN I WAS PERFORMING IN MONTE CARLO, WHICH WAS THRILLING. I REMEMBER SPECIFICALLY A GALA THAT I DID AND IN THE AUDIENCE WAS PRINCE RAINIER, HIS SON PRINCE ALBERT AT THE TIME, FRANK SINATRA, RODGER MOORE, SEAN CONNERY, JANE SEYMOUR ON AND ON. I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN I WALKED ON STAGE AND RIGHT IN THE FRONT WAS FRANK SINATRA AND I LOOKED AROUND AND IT WAS JUST LIKE THESE FACES OF MY LIFE, YOU KNOW OUT THERE BEFORE ME AND AT THE END OF THE SHOW THE FIRST PERSON TO STAND WAS SINATRA AND THEN EVERYONE ELSE FOLLOWED AND I MEAN WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT INCREDIBLE MOMENTS THAT WAS ONE THAT I'LL NEVER FORGET. ♪OH WOMEN, OH WOMEN DON'T YOU TREAT ME SO MEAN. YOU'RE THE MEANEST WOMEN THAT I'VE EVER SEEN BUT I GUESS IF YOU SAY SO I'LL HAVE TO PACK MY THINGS AND GO.♪ WHEN YOU'RE PERFORMING IN LAS VEGAS YOU HAVE PEOPLE FROM EVERYWHERE. I REMEMBER WALKING ON STAGE AND SEEING A BEAUTIFULLY DRESSED COUPLE SITTING NEXT TO A GUY IN FLIP FLOPS AND A WIFE BEATER AND THINKING TO MYSELF YOUR ENTERTAINING ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE YOU KNOW YOU'RE ENTREATING PEOPLE WHO MAYBE NEVER SAT IN A SHOWROOM AND SEEN A LIVE SHOW BEFORE YOU KNOW AND YOUR ENTERTAINING PEOPLE WHO HAVE SEEN EVERYTHING. SO YOU REALLY HAVE TO WALK ON STAGE IN LAS VEGAS SURE OF WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND OFFER IT TO THEM YOU KNOW SO LAS VEGAS IS A VERY INTERESTING PLACE TO WORK. I GOT A WOMEN WAY ON THE TOWN. SHE'S GOOD TO ME. MY MUSICAL STYLE HAS EVOLVED. RIGHT NOW MY INTERESTS GO IN TWO DIRECTIONS ONE IS THEATER AND THE OTHER IS JAZZ. SHE SAID IT'S REALLY NOT MY HABIT TO INTRUDE. IF YOU WOULD OF ASKED ME A DECADE AGO I WOULD OF SAID I'M A POP SINGER. I HAVE FOUND MY JAZZ ROOTS, WHICH MY FATHER GAVE ME WHEN I WAS TWELVE BUT AS LIFE GOES AND AS CAREERS GO YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THE WORLD YOU'RE IN AND THE WORLD I WAS IN WAS CASINOS AND NIGHT CLUBS WHERE JAZZ WAS NOT WHAT WAS WANTED, BUT NOW THAT I'M IN A PLACE WHERE I CAN QUOTE ON QUOTE MUSICALLY DO WHAT I WANT AND I FIND THAT THAT'S WHERE MY ROOTS ARE STILL. ♪JUST SLIP OUT THE BACK JACK, MAKE A NEW PLAN STAN, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE COY ROY JUST LISTEN TO ME.♪ WHEN I SING I THINK I'M THE MOST ALIVE WHEN I'M SINGING. SEE THE GIRL WITH THE DIAMOND RING SHE KNOWS HOW TO SHAKE THAT THING. EVEN IF I'M JUST REHEARSING IN THE STUDIO OR WRITING I'M THE MOST ALIVE WHEN I'M CREATING. I THINK THAT'S WHAT KEEPS ME GOING. I THINK MUSIC IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF ART. I THINK THAT IT'S UNIVERSAL, THE SOUND OF MUSIC. SO THAT'S WHY WE DO IT AND THAT'S WHY WE LOVE TO HEAR IT. THAT'S WHY IT MEANS SOMETHING TO US IN OUR LIVES. I WILL LAY ME DOWN. GOOD NIGHT. >>THE 1960'S BRITISH POP DUO, PETER AND GORDON ARE BEST KNOWN FOR THEIR INTERNATIONAL HIT, "WORLD WITHOUT LOVE." THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG IS AS SWEET AS THE TUNE'S MELODY. >>♪PLEASE LOCK ME AWAY AND DON'T ALLOW THE DAY HERE INSIDE WHERE I HIDE WITH MY LONELINESS. I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY SAY. I WON'T STAY IN A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE.♪ >>WE GOT SPOTTED AND SIGNED BY EMI RECORDS AND HAD A RECORD DEAL IN PLACE. BUT AT THAT POINT, PAUL HAD ALSO MOVED INTO OUR FAMILY HOME BECAUSE HE WAS HANGING OUT THERE A LOT BECAUSE HE WAS GOING WITH MY SISTER. SO, HE AND I WERE SHARING THE TOP FLOOR OF THE HOUSE. SO I GOT TO KNOW HIM PRETTY WELL AND HEARD SOME SONGS THAT HE WAS WORKING ON. AND AFTER WE HAD OUR DEAL I REMEMBERED THIS SONG, "WORLD WITHOUT LOVE" THAT WAS UNFINISHED AND THAT HE HAD PLAYED ME. AND I WENT TO LOOK IF THE BEATLES REALLY AREN'T GONNA DO THAT. YOU KNOW, MAYBE WE CAN DO IT. AND HE SAID, ABSOLUTELY. IT'S UP FOR GRABS AS AN ORPHANED SONG. NOBODY WANTS IT. SO HE WROTE DOWN THE LYRICS ON A TINY PIECE OF PAPER FOR ME, AND THE CHORDS. AND THAT WAS THOSE. SO OF COURSE, I SAVE THESE FOR A RAINY DAY AS IT WERE. BUT IT DIDN'T HAVE A BRIDGE. AND SO FINALLY RIGHT BEFORE OUR RECORDING SESSION I PERSUADED HIM TO WRITE THE BRIDGE, WHICH HE DID. WHICH IS THE SO I WAIT AND THEN A WHILE I WILL SEE MY TRUE LOVE SMILE. THAT BIT. AND HE ALSO MADE, WHICH WAS LOST FOR A WHILE. I VAGUELY REMEMBER THAT HE ON MY REELED TAPE MACHINE IN MY BEDROOM HE RECORDED A VERY BRIEF DEMO OF THE MELODY OF THE VERSE JUST SO I DIDN'T FORGET IT. >>♪PLEASE LOCK ME AWAY AND DON'T ALLOW THE DAY, HERE INSIDE WHERE I HIDE WITH MY LONELINESS. I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY, I WON'T STAY IN A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE.♪ >>SO THAT WAS THE DEMO THAT HE GAVE US SO WE DIDN'T FORGET THE SONG. IT WAS AMAZING. YOU TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER, OF COURSE. YOU MAKE A RECORD AND IT GOES TO NUMBER ONE. YOU KIND OF GO, OH, GOOD. YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T REALIZE THAT'S ONE IN A BILLION. THAT'S LIKE YOU'VE WON THE LOTTERY YOU KNOW? NOW, WE KNOW ALL THOSE THINGS. BUT THEN, YOU JUST KIND OF WENT, OH GREAT WE MADE A RECORD. IT SOUNDED GOOD. CAME OUT, GOT ON THE RADIO, BECAME A HIT. EXCELLENT. AND LET'S GO AN ENJOY IT. AND WE DID. AND THEN WHEN IT WENT TO NUMBER ONE IN AMERICA OF COURSE WE WERE THRILLED TO DEATH. BECAUSE AMERICA TO US BACK IN ENGLAND THEN IN THE 60S WAS THE LAND OF OUR DREAMS. WHERE EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. WELL I STARTED PRODUCING RECORDS JUST BECAUSE I LOVED THE PROCESS. I MEAN I, FIRST TIME GORDON AND I STARTED MAKING RECORDS, THE FIRST SESSION WE EVER HAD IN A REAL STUDIO WITH REAL STUDIO MUSICIANS, I LOVED IT. I LOVED THE TECHNOLOGY OF IT. I LOVED THE FACT THAT WHEN I WATCHED THE PRODUCER HE GETS TO TELL MUSICIANS BETTER THAN US WHAT TO PLAY. IT'S BRILLIANT. I STILL DO THAT TO THIS DAY. THAT'S WHAT I LOVE. I CAN PHONE UP AND HAVE BRILLIANT MUSICIANS COME DOWN AND PLAY WHAT I'M HEARING IN MY HEAD AND PLAY IT BETTER THAN I THOUGHT OF IT. FIRST TIME I HEARD JAMES, I JUST THOUGHT, IT SEEMED OBVIOUS TO ME. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT WASN'T OBVIOUS TO EVERYBODY ELSE THAT HE WAS JUST EXTRAORDINARILY GOOD. I MEAN EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM. HIS SINGING. HE HAS A FOLKY VOICE, BUT PRAYS LIKE SAM COOK OR RAY CHARLES. AND WE'D PLAY GUITAR WITH THE SKILL OF A CLASSICAL MUSICIAN AND THE CHORDS OF A JAZZ MUSICIAN, AND JUST ALL-TOGETHER AMAZING. AND THEN WROTE THESE INCREDIBLE SONGS. SO TO ME IT WAS LIKE DUH, LOOK AT THAT, AND LISTEN TO THAT. SAME WITH LINDA. I MEAN SOMEBODY SAID TO ME, YOU HAVE TO GO DOWN AND HEAR THIS GIRL SINGING AT THE BITTER END. SHE'S GOT THE MOST AMAZING VOICE YOUV'E EVER HEARD. PLUS SHE'S INSANELY HOT AS WELL. I WENT, OKAY. I'M ON THE WAY. AND IT WAS ALL TRUE. AND SHE REMAINS MY FAVORITE GIRL SINGER OF ALL TIME. EVERY TIME I DO ANYTHING ON TELEVISION PEOPLE ASK ME TO SING THIS SONG. SO WE WILL. AND THIS IS THE SHORT ACOUSTIC VERSION, THE HOME VERSION OF "WORLD WITHOUT LOVE" ♪PLEASE LOCK ME AWAY AND DON'T ALLOW THE DAY HERE INSIDE WHERE I HIDE WITH MY LONELINESS. I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY SAY, I WON'T STAY IN A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE. BIRDS SING OUT OF TUNE AND RAIN CLOUDS HIDE THE MOON. I'M OKAY HERE I'LL STAY WITH MY LONELINESS. I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY SAY, I WON'T STAY IN A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE. >>AND THE FAMOUS BRIDGE. SO I WAIT AND IN A WHILE I WILL SEE MY TRUE LOVE SMILE. SHE MAY COME I KNOW NOT WHEN. WHEN SHE DOES I'LL KNOW. SO BABY UNTIL THEN, LOCK ME AWAY AND DON'T ALLOW THE DAY HERE INSIDE WHERE I HIDE WITH MY LONELINESS. I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY SAY, I WON'T STAY IN A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE. I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY SAY, I WON'T STAY IN A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE.♪ >>PIANIST LAURA DOWNES LOVES TO PERFORM. SHE ALSO LOVES TO SHARE HER EXPERIENCES THROUGH A NATIONAL TALENT PROGRAM FOR YOUNG ARTISTS. >>BEING A MUSICIAN IS A COUPLE OF THINGS. OBVIOUSLY YOU START WITH TALENT. YOU KNOW? YOU START WITH THIS DEEPLY INGRAINED TALENT AND LOVE OF THE MUSIC, AND THOSE ARE THE TWO THINGS THAT, SORT OF, DRIVE YOU THROUGHOUT A LONG LIFE IN MUSIC, HOPEFULLY. I MEAN I'M A CLASSICALLY TRAINED PIANIST. AND MY TRAINING WAS FAIRLY, WAS VERY IMMERSIVE. I THINK THAT AT THE CORE OF EVERYTHING THAT I DO AND OF ALL OF MY EXPERIENCE THROUGHOUT MY TRAINING AND THROUGHOUT MY CAREER, IS THE CENTRAL FACT THAT WE HAVE A LIMITED AUDIENCE FOR THIS MUSIC. AND SO YOU CAN ADDRESS THAT IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS. AND I CHOOSE TO ADDRESS THAT BOTH IN HOW I PRESENT MY MUSIC AND HOW I SPEAK ABOUT MY MUSIC AND HOW I TEACH ABOUT MY MUSIC, IT'S JUST SORT OF REACHING OUT ABOUT THE MUSIC TO AUDIENCES, TO LISTENERS TO, YOUNG PEOPLE AND BUILDING AUDIENCES TO NURTURING THE NEXT GENERATION. BOTH OF MUSICIANS AND OF LISTENERS. I WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE YOUNG MUSICIANS WHO ENTERED THE COMPETITION THIS YEAR. THOSE WHO ARE HERE TODAY THOSE WHO ARE NOT, THOSE FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY. THE MONDAVI CENTER YOUNG ARTIST COMPETITION IS A NATIONAL PROGRAM FOR YOUNG MUSICIANS AGES, 12-22. AND IT'S A 3 STEP PROCESS. WE HAVE FIRST PRELIMINARY AUDITIONS, WHICH ARE RECORDED. SUBMISSIONS IN THE FALL. AND THEN, WE TRAVEL AROUND THE COUNTRY AND HEAR SEMI-FINALISTS WHO PASS THAT FIRST ROUND IN MAJOR CITIES ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY. THIS YEAR WE WENT TO LOS ANGELES, NEW YORK, CLEVELAND AND HERE IN DAVIS. THIS IS THE 8TH YEAR FOR THE COMPETITION; IT'S REALLY FABULOUS TO SEE THE KIDS GROW. I SIT THERE IN THE AUDITION ROOM AND IT JUST, OH MY GOSH, I'M JUST THROWN BACK TO MY OWN DAYS, YOU KNOW, DOING AUDITIONS AND COMPETITIONS, AND AWARE THAT IT'S, IT'S SUCH A HARD THING, YOU KNOW, TO GO INTO A ROOM AND YOU'VE GOT 5 MINUTES MAYBE 10 MINUTES TO SHOW EVERYTHING YOU CAN DO, IT'S A LOT OF PRESSURE. TO BE DEVELOPING A SENSE OF WHO THEY ARE AS MUSICIANS CAUSE WE'RE NOT ALL THE SAME, WE EACH NEED TO FIND OUR OWN VOICE AND OUR OWN STRENGTHS AND DEVELOP THOSE. SO FROM THEN ON IT'S JUST BEEN GROWING STEADILY YEAR BY YEAR AND, YOU KNOW, WENT FROM A VERY SMALL LOCAL THING TO SOMETHING THAT'S NOW A NATIONAL PROGRAM, AND IS REALLY HAVING A WIDE REACH AND I THINK A DEEP IMPACT WHICH IS SO GRATIFYING BUT I THINK WE'VE UM, IDENTIFIED WHAT'S UNIQUE ABOUT THE PROGRAM AND WHERE OUR STRENGTHS ARE AND WE'RE SEEING THE IMPACTS THAT WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE WE'RE HEARING, EVERY YEARS I SAY THE LEVEL THIS YEAR IS, IS EVEN BETTER AND THEN I HEAR MYSELF SAY WELL I SAID THAT LAST YEAR TOO, BUT IN, IN FACT YOU KNOW WE, THE UM, THE VISIBILITY OF THE PROGRAM IS INCREASING AND SO WE'RE JUST HEARING SUCH TALENTED KIDS, IT'S JUST EXCITING. I THINK WHERE MUSIC COMPETITIONS CAN FAIL IS IN NOT HAVING FOLLOW-THROUGH. SO ONE OF THE MAIN GOALS, ONE OF THE CENTRAL POINTS TO THE VISION OF THE MONDAVI CENTER COMPETITION IS FOLLOW-THROUGH, AND UM, REALLY CONTINUING TO SERVE AS A SUPPORT AND A TOUCHSTONE FOR THE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO COME THROUGH HERE. I THINK, THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND FORMATIVE EXPERIENCES THAT YOUNG MUSICIANS HAVE TO PERFORM IN A WORLD CLASS VENUE BECAUSE YOU KNOW AGAIN, YOU PRACTICE AND YOU PRACTICE AND THEN WHEN YOU HAVE THE BEST CASE SCENARIO, WHEN YOU HAVE A ROOM WITH FABULOUS ACOUSTICS AND NOT EVEN ONLY THAT, YOU GET TO, YOU KNOW, LOOK OUT AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL AND YOU'RE IN, UNDER THE LIGHTS AND YOU REALIZE, YOU GET TO REALIZE THE FULL EXTENT OF YOUR POTENTIAL. I THINK IT'S A VERY HOPEFUL FUTURE, I REALLY DO, WHEN I SEE WHAT THEY'RE DOING, WHEN I SEE HOW TALENTED THEY ARE, BUT ALSO MAYBE THE, THE PERSPECTIVE THAT THEY HAVE INTO THIS LIFE AND WHAT THEY WANT TO DO WITH IT, I THINK IT'S REALLY A HOPEFUL FUTURE. >>THAT'S ALL FOR THIS WEEK ON WUCF ARTISODES.
