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.
