    Last Friday, Gabrielino High School’s Encore club hosted its first talent show from 3-9:30 p.m. at the Gary E. Goodson Theatre. The talent show featured a variety of performances from various students attending Gabrielino, boasting a total of __ acts.

    Senior Winfred Wang performed a piece titled Liszt’s Transcendental Étude No. 10.

    “I was excited for the talent show because I knew that there would be a lot of potential,” stated senior Hanna Siregar. “Winfred and Martha’s acts are definitely ones to look out for.”

    Senior Martha Lopez won over the crowd with Jealous by Labrinth.

    Prior to this year, Gabrielino had always hosted its talent shows on behalf of Tri-M Music Honor Society. However, the club’s change in name this year from Tri-M to Encore meant that this would be the first year in which the talent show would be hosted under Encore.

    Despite the change in name, the purpose of the club thrives as it remains to be a music oriented service club that promotes Gabrielino’s music programs.

    Encore’s talent show was open to students of all grade levels. Those interested in being a part of the talent show were required to undergo an audition process in order to perform. Decisions on the final acts for the talent show were made by the Encore adviser Melissa Romero as well as Encore officers.

    “Since it was my second and last talent show, I was really looking forward to giving it my all onstage with my fellow musicians,” said Siregar.

    In late March, a meeting was held for prospective participants in order to announce audition dates and generate interest for the talent show. Potential performers were then directed to the Gabrielino Encore Club website to sign up through a Google form and choose a time slot via a spreadsheet.

    Auditions occurred on April 10, before and after school, and April 11, after school. Reauditions which were established for acts that would be given a second shot or acts that needed further improvement after the initial audition were given on April 17. Roughly 12 acts auditioned and ___ participated in the talent show.

    Tickets for the talent show began to be distributed by members of Encore during the week of April 19 and were available for purchase for $3.
