Electric Youth and the Boston Show Band to Perform Free Summer Concerts Following European Tour

Electric Youth and the Boston Show Band will perform concerts on the common in Franklin, Norfolk and Hopkinton following their 2022 European Concert Tour. The free to the public shows will be July 31 at 5:00 p.m. in Hopkinton, August 4 at 6:30 p.m. in Norfolk, and August 5 at 6:00 p.m. in Franklin. This July, EY will embark on a concert tour of Belgium, France, Switzerland, and Italy. 
Electric Youth delivers high-energy, fully choreographed performances of classic rock, contemporary pop, Broadway, and country hits for audiences of all ages. The American touring ensemble of talented singer-dancers, ages 14-18, is backed by the eight-piece Boston Show Band — world class musicians who’ve worked with music legends Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, Dizzy Gillespie, B.B. King, Diana Ross, The Temptations, Van Morrison and more. Electric Youth is trained at the Franklin School for the Performing Arts. The group has toured Europe performing in such renowned venues as Vienna’s Konzerthaus, Musikverein and Schonbrunn Palace; Sanremo’s Ariston Theatre; England’s Arundel Festival; Disneyland Paris; and professional theaters in Bristol, London and Windsor. EY has also headlined Fourth of July shows for U.S. troops stationed in Italy at Camp Ederle, Camp Darby, and Aviano Air Force Base. The ensemble has performed on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas, on Fox-TV and WBZ Radio, and at Fenway Park, Gillette Stadium, the Smithsonian Museum Theater, the United Nations and the U.S. Embassy in Vienna. Electric Youth has released six albums, including 2014’s Power Chord, available on iTunes. Last year, EY recorded and released their a cappella single “Always Remember Us This Way” arranged and edited by Jim Hogan of a cappella sensation T.3 (available on all streaming platforms). 
Collectively, the members of Electric Youth 2022 have performed with Broadway stars, sung the National Anthem for Boston sports teams, been selected to perform at “Broadway Sessions” in NYC, worked with choreographers from So You Think You Can Dance, and more.  Alumni of Electric Youth have gone on to appear on Broadway, in national and international tours, television, regional theater, feature film, professional dance companies, cruise ships, and more.  
The 2022 group of talented young singers and dancers includes Hayley Driscoll, Tatiana McAlpine, Sami Goldman, Abby Settle, Audrey Miningham, Devin DeAngelis, Finley Doherty, John Fitzhenry, Madigan Wirkus, Abby Trombert, Anya Fox, Ashley Peppin, Erin Belger, and Tzintli Cerda. 
Electric Youth is trained at the Franklin School for the Performing Arts. FSPA students have the chance to audition for the international touring ensemble every fall.
