Ozaukee Talent Showcase to be Held in Random Lake, WI

Saturday August 7th 11am to 2pm at Christ Pond Retreat Center

[Grafton] [WI] [July 24, 2021] Ozaukee Talent welcomes you to an informal open house showcase of local talent on Saturday August 7 between 11 am and 2 pm.  Admission is free and open to the public.   Approximately 15 students (mostly youth) have volunteered to share their musical and acting talents at Christ Pond Retreat Center in Random Lake, WI with mostly family and friends.  Christ Pond Retreat Center is an events facility located on 100 acres of preserved Wisconsin land.  The address is N1599 State Hwy. 57 in Random Lake, WI.  Visit christpond.org for more information.

“The reason why I don’t use the word ‘recital’ is because a lot of people have preconceived ideas on what a recital is and the images that come to mind can tend to be negative.   I don’t believe in forcing anyone to perform who doesn’t want to.  I have seen that this can do more harm than good especially in a young child.  Families and guests are also free to come and go as they please.  The performance environment is comfortable and casual —Angie Mack, Ozaukee Talent founder and Musical Producer

Outdoor special guest performer will be longtime radio host Ben Merens.

Most recently, Ozaukee Talent sponsored singer/songwriter Demetra Prochaska at the Youth Battle of the Bands competition at this year’s Gathering on the Green in Mequon, WI.
