CMU’s new contemporary vocal ensemble Mesa OutLoud! will perform in the Moss Performing Arts Center Robinson Theatre on Sunday, January 18th at 2:00 pm in a fundraising concert for Mesa Repertory Theatre’s summer season.

Formed last year for a performance at the Taste of CMU event at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, President Foster and the Board of Trustees decided to create a permanent community outreach and touring ensemble in the Department of Theatre Arts.

The result was Mesa OutLoud!  Under the direction of CMU’s director of Musical Theatre Jeremy Franklin and Department of Theatre Arts head Tim Pinnow, Mesa OutLoud is a show ensemble that focuses on contemporary commercial music from the American Songbook and the Broadway stage to current chart-topping favorites. In their short five weeks of existence, the group has performed for Grand Junction’s Farmer’s Market, CMU’s Donors and Scholars Event, a dinner hosted by Bob and Louise Sammons for contestants at this year’s Porks ‘n’ Hops, and most recently for Community Hospital’s Annual Gala.  In just a few weeks, they will be leaving on a week-long tour to New Mexico and will be back at A Taste of CMU at the Denver Center next January.

The members are comprised of scholarship students from the music theatre, acting/directing, and dance programs within the Department of Theatre Arts at CMU.  They are accompanied by staff pianist Doug Morrow.

Tickets for Mesa OutLoud!are available at the Box Office by calling 970-248-1604.
