So I don’t know if anyone has heard about this, but there is a BIG concert coming up here in McKinney. Remember Season 11 of American Idol? Remember how McKinney Boyd graduate Hollie Cavanagh was a finalist? Remember how she should have won the whole thing?
Well, she’s coming back home from Hollywood for a BIG concert on October 25.
But that’s not all. Local favorite hootenanny band, The Bodarks will also be playing (you may have seen them at Cafe Malaga or The Cadillac Pizza Pub or one of our other cool local venues).
But wait, that’s still not all! Michael Williams is another McKinney Boyd grad who has done okay in the performing arts. You may remember him from The Phantom of the Opera at Boyd, or from Dallas Summer Musicals where he was chosen as best actor. Well, he’s been off doing his thing in New York and he’s coming back for the big concert, too. And he’s got plans – choreography, back up singers and dancers, the whole nine yards.
The thing that I find so cool about this is that it’s to benefit the McKinney Boyd Orchestra program. They’ve been chosen to go to Chicago to perform at the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago.
