Keeping the music alive, one note at a time...
My name is Valerie and I am a concert vocalist. I bridge the gap between an artists desire to create and a presenters need to be successful.
While you might think your venue is "too small" or doesn't have a space to put on a concert, I can only assure you that some of my favorite performances to date are not necessarily in a 500 or 1,000 seat theater or performance hall but rather "up close and personal". This may mean performing in a library series, concerts on the common or in a church. Maybe it is standing right next to one of my awesome patrons as they finish up their coffee and desert in the dining room of their golf course or neighborhood community room. Maybe it is in a cabaret or black box space where IF you are lucky if you can squeeze in 100 people. I actually like that environment and for the patrons that have experienced this with me, they do as well. There is something really neat about being THAT close to one another. So please, please, please, do not feel like your concert or show idea is crazy. Call me and let us plan your craziness together. I am about as kookie as you can get!
Also I have been frequently asked to perform benefits and more often than not, due to my experience as a producer/present, I have been asked to market/promote the concert aspects. The reality is this WHEN you add MUSIC TO A BENEFIT, it more often than not can yield you 4, 5, or as much as 10 times more than if there was no music. I work hand in hand with the person or organization to make sure at the benefit concert, the organizations mission and message is being sent in a loving, respectful, clear and concise manner throughout the concert. I have the capability to educate an audience about ways they can help. I am not afraid to ask people to "dig deep". Not only within their pockets but their hearts. The goal with this sort of event and concert is to make a difference in the world and make people feel good about getting involved whether it is on a community or national level.
ALSO something really NEAT I offer is A "get acquainted" call. This is for my V.I.P.'ers. V.I.P. stands for VALERIE IMPORTANT PERSON! And yes YOU are MAJORLY VERY IMPORTANT TO ME.
I am so incredibly grateful to those of you who have attended my live events but also to the activity directors, executive directors, theater managers, music directors, conductors, and numerous agents who have booked me for so many years on private dates all over the country. I have been able to share the stage with Broadway, National and International stars and have had an amazing career. In fact, I may even pinch myself this very second to see if this is "real". Has this all been a dream?
I thank you and appreciate and love, love, love each and every single one of you for being a part of my musical mission to keep the music alive all these years! Thank you for your continued support and patronage. Without YOU none of this would have been possible.
From my heart to your ears,
VALERIE SNEADE'S PROJECT SING!
I was a "late bloomer". A victim of music being cut from the the Grafton, Massachusetts public school curriculum very early on. So I had no idea I could sing. It was not until I was in high school that my boyfriend heard me humming and told me "Valerie.....SING!"
That boyfriend's gentle nudging has given me 20 plus years as a professional in this business and NOW I feel it is my turn to help children and young adults find their voice! So watch out world, Valerie's Project-Sing has been born and is available for bookings!
This awesomely fun and interactive educational programming is something truly unique and special! Through our mutual Strengths, Interests, Needs & Goals, together we can teach the world to S.I.N.G., one note at a time.
VALERIE SNEADE'S SIMPLY SYMPHONIC
For symphonies with a passion for POPS programming, I am the perfect compliment to your upcoming season. As weird as it is for me to say this, I have been called " a diva in the making". Perhaps this makes me POPS worthy? Critics have also raved about my "powerhouse pipes and beaming stage personality". Ok, I can admit that YES, I have a REALLY BIG mouth.
Seriously! One of the greatest compliments I ever received was when someone said "Valerie, you are a Broadway caliber singer without the Broadway sticker price". He did not mean I was "cheap" but the contrary. I was affordable to those who did not want to pay a $15,000 - $100,000 fee to book "a star".
I surely know if I had stayed working in musical theater out of New York City, I am confident I would have been cast in a Broadway show. I left the Big Apple because the concert world was calling my name. Now I hope YOU are! Oh Vaaalllleeerrriiieeee, where are you?
I have two concerts that are fully orchestrated: A Tribute to Barbra Streisand & A Tribute to Hollywood. They will highlight and showcase your musicians and Maestro.
I offer a fresh, youthful approach that adds a pop and contemporary edge to the my legit, concert hall training. This combination has proven popular with audiences of all ages which is evidenced by my sold out shows when working in this format. So lets get acquainted! I can not wait to meet you!
