The show featured a touching performance and tribute to jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis, noted grammy award and gold record winner and Streeterville resident. SOAR awarded Ramsey Lewis with their coveted SOAR Star Award. The award is presented to a person who has contributed a lasting legacy to the performing arts, contributes to the quality of life and enjoyment of Streeterville residents and provides a vibrant cultural experience. We are honored to have Mr. Lewis as part of the Streeterville community
If you missed the show’s premiere, you can tune in to see it anytime here. LeeAnn Trotter, Entertainment Reporter for NBC Chicago was our MC for the evening and did a great job. Our thanks to LeeAnn for adding a special touch to the evening.
The show and all the other details that went into Streeterville’s Got Talent would not have been possible with out the hard work of the event committee which was chaired by the very capable Joan Wolfensberger. Event committee volunteers included; Joel Brosk, Brian Butler, Derek Brewer, Judy Aiello, Meghan Farrell, Debby Gershbein, Clare Hennessy, Sarah Leeper, Laura Small and Pam Woodward.
Special thanks to our sponsors for their support which helped to make the show possible.
