For Immediate Release

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.

Ben Merens is a storyteller and public speaker with a passion for listening. He is a veteran broadcaster and spent 21 years as a talk show host at Wisconsin Public Radio.

Today Ben provides stories for organizations and trains people in the art & science of effective, emotive storytelling.  He is the author of “People Are Dying To Be Heard” and “Uni-Tasking: 25 Tips For Better Listening.”  Ben is trained as a journalist and media professional. He has taught a variety of communications classes at colleges and universities in New York, Chicago and throughout Wisconsin.  For fun, Ben is an improvisational, acoustic guitar troubadour.  

Ozaukee Talent was founded by Mack in February of 2016 after a bout with very early stage breast cancer and a two year medical leave from her usual teaching and directing duties through the North Shore Academy of the Arts (NSAA).  She is known by many families in Ozaukee County as a musical theater director who has been involved with producing and directing over 100 shows during the past 20 years.  

Mack is also internationally known as a music educator, researcher and historian.  She has worked with many famous writers and playwrights, musicians, actors, producers and film directors from all over the world.  She introduced the music history concept for Grafton’s downtown Paramount Plaza and has served as the Chairperson for the International Walk of Fame Committee since 2006.   

More about Mack in the media can be found at https://angiemackreilly.com/media/

Mack has a strong reputation of developing top notch talent.  Students of hers have become lead roles at various regional theaters and organizations such as The Milwaukee Repertory Theater, First Stage, The Fireside, Schauer Arts and Activities Center, The Cedarburg Performing Arts Center, Kids from Wisconsin and the Cedarburg Cultural Center

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. 

21 year old Prochaska won 3rd place and $1000 which should help her musical career get off to a good footing.

Ozaukee Talent collaborates with local businesses and organizations to bring about successful music and arts events, classes and programs.  Mack gives private music and acting lessons outside of her home which she jokingly nicknamed The Grafton House of Blues.  She is currently looking to add instructors for the fall semester.  Contact angie@ozaukeetalent.com if interested.

HOW OFTEN & WHEN:  

Week of June 7 through the week of August 23rd.  Each slot is 1/2 hour each.

Some students like purchasing an hour slot especially if there are multiple disciplines (i.e. guitar and voice) or if the student is more serious about musical learning.  There is a drop down menu to reserve your slot.  Slots are first come/first served.  No refunds once you reserve.  However, you can switch to a different available slot once registered.

WHO:  Angie Mack Reilly is the instructor for these lesson slots.

DISCIPLINES: 

I have 23 years of producing, directing, performing and teaching music in Ozaukee County.  I am considered an “expert” in my field.  My strength is in how knowledgeable and diverse that  am.  I also have a ton of connections in the entertainment industry.  I primarily work with ages 3 to 103.  I teach piano, guitar, voice, acting, songwriting, music theory, ukulele, public speaking, marketing your music, drums, music and technology and so much more.  Just ask!  angie@ozaukeetalent.com

TESTIMONIALS:

Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value

Ozaukee Talent has instilled in my son the love of piano and music. Angie does an amazing job and is an outstanding teacher. I hope you choose her!

Positive: Professionalism

Angie is so knowledgeable of music and the business. She is a great teacher and person to work with.

My son has been receiving guitar lessons from Angie for several years, individual and group. He really enjoys working with Angie. She does a great job of mixing the child’s interest in different music styles with teaching.

What can I say? Angie of Ozaukee Talent is truly amazing! She once said that she loves to uncover the hidden gems in our community. But I truly believe that she herself is a rare gem! She is one of the most talented, compassionate, creative people that I have ever met. By planting musical seeds, she has opened some amazing doors for our children in the arts. She produces and directs plays in our community, she teaches musical instruments, voice, public speaking, audition practice, and the list goes on. She is truly a blessing in our community!

Angie at Ozaukee Talent is amazing! Not sure what we would do without her patient guidance. Ozaukee Talent is a hidden gem. Thank you, Angie Mack Reilly for all you’ve done for us!

Angie has a great ability to bring out the hidden talents in her students for both young and old alike. With her 20+ years of experience in music and the arts, Angie helps her students explore, experiment and develop their talent. Her studio invites creativity, whether she provides lessons in piano, guitar, vocals, or drama. As an adult student, Angie helped me bring focus and clarity to my love of music and singing and I had the opportunity to entertain in my community. She also made the 88 keys on the piano so easy to understand in just a short period of time. Taking lessons with Angie, whatever your dicipline, should be part of anybody’s curriculum Angie is the person, the coach, you want in your corner to get ready for your big day. She is a great supporter and promoter of local talent AND a talented musician in her own right. Thanks Angie!

Redemption Pear, featuring creative couple Angie Mack Reilly and Matthew Reilly, will be performing LIVE at Smith Bros. on Saturday July 29 from 8PM to 10PM.

The performance will be held at Smith Bros. Coffee House100 N Franklin St, Port Washington, WI 53074, USA map Admission is $5.  All ages are welcome.  

Angie has been performing publicly in various capacities throughout her entire lifetime. Her life as a performer came to an abrupt halt when she started going through some severe medical and family issues.  This particular performance is expected to be a sort of “coming out” for Angie.

The couple will be performing “never heard before” originals as well as songs that stem from the musical tree of spirituals, jazz and blues. This show will be highly interactive, educational and intimate as well as authentic.   They both have experience as arts educators.

Read Time:2 Minute, 25 Second

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

by Angie Mack Reilly 5/18/17

I cannot tell you how THRILLED I am to have a former student of mine, Stephanie Erin Brill, as a piano and songwriting instructor for the 2017 OZAUKEE TALENT SUMMER SESSION!

Stephanie began piano and songwriting lessons with me at the age of 9 and continued until she released her first album as a 13 year old.  The rest is history.  And it’s history in the making!

Stephanie has created an outstanding legacy at such a young age.  You might have seen her as the emcee for the Cedarburg Cultural Center’s Blueburg Cafe or performing at Cedarburg’s Strawberry Fest or Summerfest for that matter!   This gal isn’t stopping anytime soon!  She has a full summer line-up of performing gigs and is excited to be a part of Cedarburg’s Summer Sounds crew this season.

Stephanie will be teaching both youth and adults for the summer session which will be starting up soon.

To book a lesson slot with Stephanie for this summer, please visit OZAUKEE TALENT REGISTRATION for available time slots.

Ozaukee Talent is pleased to be offering internships during the summer of 2017. Internships provide one on one training in a real life setting for those wanting to succeed in music-related fields.  Contact angie@ozaukeetalent.com 

I often say, “In the entertainment industry, it’s not what you know but WHO you know.” Stephanie Erin Brill is someone to know.

If you LIKE the idea of a local, female-led business willing to INVEST IN and PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES for youth, please consider DONATING a TAX DEDUCTIBLE gift to OZAUKEE TALENT.  Your dollars will be put to good use.  angie@ozaukeetalent.com
