2012 Idyllwild Arts Gala

28 06 2012

228 enthusiastic guests attended the 8th annual Idyllwild Arts Gala, honoring Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil with the Idyllwild Arts Life in Art Award on March 11 where we raised over $121,000 towards scholarships for low-income students at Idyllwild Arts Academy and Summer Program.

The evening’s performances by current Academy students of Another Op’nin, Another Show and On Broadway started the evening off with a bang. James Ingram brought the house down with his emotional rendition of Just Once, and Steve Tyrell’s performances of Don’t Know Much and You Turn Me Around were phenomenal. When our current students joined Barry Mann in singing Somewhere Out There, the audience experienced something truly special. There is something very inspirational about watching a songwriter perform their own song. Casey Abrams ’09 gave an impromptu performance (and even auctioned off an original song!). The evening ended with a sing-along of You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling.

What an incredible evening – and what an amazing gathering of creative, talented, and generous people all in support of Idyllwild Arts!
