The MC Summer Concert is set to take place in July and the lineup has just been announced. Ahead of the main act, the KUNGS, will be three local young artists who will have the amazing opportunity to perform in the famous Salle des Etoiles.
The first MC Summer Concert for young people has been organised by the National Council, the Prince’s Government, and the Monaco City Council, and will take place on 15th July at the Sporting Monte Carlo.
The headline act, the KUNGS, was announced earlier this year. But young musicians in the Principality were asked to audition before their peers for the three warm up act positions. The winners were Olivia Dorato, Rory O’Shea and Pab Emson.
Monegasque Olivia Dorato is a 21-year-old composer, performer and musician. She has been composing since the age of nine and released her first album ‘Heartbroken’ in 2013, followed by ‘Fizzy’ in 2017. She has performed in concert during the 10 year anniversary festivities of Prince Albert II, the Aluna Festival, and the Bandol Festival. She has also performed ahead of Gilbert Montagné, Dany Brillant, and Michael Jones.
Rory O’Shea, a British national, is a singer and dancer who has performed in musicals with the Théâtre Michel Daner in Beausoleil and at the Music Festival in Mouans-Sartoux. Last year he was lucky enough to sing on stage in the Salle des Etoiles, during the CHPG ‘Cabaret Musical’.
Pab Emson is a singer within the pop / dance genre, and alternates between personal compositions and covers of famous artists. On 15th July, he will perform tracks from his latest album which is currently in production.
Tickets are available free of charge at the Grimaldi Forum, from Tuesday to Saturday, from noon to 7pm (two tickets per person). The concert is open to young Monegasques, residents or students of the Principality, aged 13 to 25 years.
A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
