Kenmore East Seeking Nominees for Performing Arts Hall of Fame

Music, drama, artistic talents would join “Who’s Who” of inductees

The Kenmore East Performing Arts Hall of Fame Committee is looking for nominees for its 2017 class.  This will be the fourth group honored by the school and previous inductees span the full range of artistic endeavors — all graduates or educators from the 57-year-old school.

Nomination forms can be found at here and are due by mid-September. Any former students, teachers or school staff that have committed their life to the performing arts — as a career or even just a lifetime passion — may be eligible for induction.

Next year’s class — former students and/or school staff — will be honored at an induction event on Friday, April 21, 2017 at 7 pm.  The special ceremony will take place in the school’s auditorium and is free to the public.

30 local and national stars from the fields of music, theater and film were previously chosen for this award over the past five years.  The biographies of these individuals read like a script for the Lincoln Center awards and the winners cover the gamut across all the different entertainment arenas.

These include a costume mistress who managed the Metropolitan Opera and Saturday Night Live; a film producer of such hits as “A Single Man” & “The Golden Compass”); the special effects genius behind “Avatar”; and the conductor of the U.S. Army Field Band.

On the dramatic side, inductees represent the Broadway stage; television; movies and radio.  Comedic twins Paul & Peter Vogt; musical theater stars Corinne Melancon and Brian Charles Johnson; and radio personality, Tom Bauerle, are represented on the special Kenmore East wall.

Musically, the range of talent is phenomenal, including Billy Sheehan and Dave Constantino — members of the rock band “Talas”; a jazz musician and a professional drummer; song-writers & composers; and the makings of an incredible brass section.
