Spotlight on Advertiser: Green Valley’s Got Talent Moves to Sundays!

Students Taya Jaeger, Hannah Nielsen, and Taylor Jackman talk about what music means to them.

The Green Valley’s Got Talent (GVGT) Board of Directors is making it even easier for all ages to participate in Green Valley’s most popular talent show. GVGT performances are moving this year to a Sunday matinee to attract more young performers and working adults who won’t have to take time off or skip school to be a part of the GVGT lineup.

Featured Performers Announced

Nov. 12: Talented singer, songwriter, and dedicated community activist from Tubac, Jerry Leggett, performed two years ago on our stage to great audience acclaim. His mix of popular songs and originals is sure to inspire and delight.

Dec. 3: Vocalist extraordinaire Lyn Fritts is a veteran of 20 years, singing jazz and blues in England, and the premier African Reggae band in Tucson, K-Bass, and Farafina Musiki. Lyn’s show will highlight her love of folk, country, jazz, and popular music.

Jan. 7: Larry Worster, Chris Buzan, and Patrick Smith have teamed up to form Silver and Chrome, a trio dedicated to creating energetic music and scintillating vocal harmonies, turning their music into money for the Sahuarita Food Bank. These three extraordinary talents will perform audience favorites from the Beatles to Crosby, Stills & Nash, with a few traditional tunes thrown in.
