You Got Talent Spotlights Top UNM Performers

In the spirit of Star Search and American Idol, UNM has tapped its most talented for a variety show that includes a jazz quartet, a classical pianist, dancing, vocalists and so much more.

 

Whittled from 45 auditions to 12 highly entertaining acts performed by UNM faculty, staff and/or students, You Got Talent? is slated May 8, 7:30-9:30 p.m. on UNM’s big stage, Popejoy Hall. Proceeds will benefit the UNM Health Sciences Center’s Center For Life Preventive and Integrative Medicine Specialty Clinic. Tickets are on sale now - $20 for the general public; $12 for students; and $10 for kids 12 years and under. A special package of 50 seats and attendance at the post-performance gala with judges and performers runs $100 per seat.

This cadre of exceptional finalists will be judged by New Mexico Symphony Orchestra Conductor Guillermo Figueroa; Dance Theater Southwest Director Patricia Dickinson; KOB-TV 4 Anchor Tom Joles; UNM Executive Vice President for Health Sciences Dr. Paul Roth; and UNM Associate Professor of Music Dr. Patricia Repar. First place prize is $500; second place wins $300; and third place wins $200.

With generous support from Señor Pino Foods, New Mexico State Employee Credit Union and Sandia Oil Company, You Got Talent? promises to be a delightful evening of entertainment that will expand preventive and integrative medical services for patients coping with chronic diseases, and other preventable conditions.
