Lindsey Stirling, a young Female Violinist, Touring after the release of her second studio release called Shatter Me In Lewiston NY at Artpark June 10, 2015

As the sun was getting ready to settle in for the night, and the twilight hour mesmerized the sky its its rich golden hues, the stage filled with a white cloud of smoke and the song Ascendance filled the air, the cloud cleared to reveal Lindsey in a silver space style dance outfit with shimmery tights. During Moon Trance, Zombie dancers with tombstone props catch and capture the quickly moving Lindsey.

As the sun settled, and the moonlight lit the sky, people danced as Lindsey played a song that both girls and guys could relate to, The gamer/Nerd Medley. When the song Song of the Caged Bird was played a big Birdcage video on the screen gave the impression that Ms. Stirling was playing from inside a birdcage.

With a love for classical violin, Lindsey mixes dubstep and upbeat dance moves, talented dancers, entertaining lights and video, sterling gives a fresh new take on the classical music. Stirling plays and electric violin and while dancing in a fast upbeat hip-hop style. Her fan base reaches across many platforms from, hip-hop, classical, violin lovers and dubstep.

In her spare time, Stirling is a motivational speaker using her own story to show teenagers that you’ve got to have confidence in the very thing that makes you unique – then wait for the world to catch up. She is a true inspiration to many.

Karmin was spot on as always with such songs as her Acapella and Brokenhearted. Amy Heidemann was wearing her signature hairstyle in a side swoop buffant. Amy slowed things down a little with a cover of Pure Imagination. Before closing the set Heidemann, sang Nirvana’s Smells like teen Spirit while the audience sang a-long. Karmin is a high energy must see Hip-hop show.

Olivia Somerlyn and her cute self came out on stage with all smiles singing her song Parachute. Olivia, has definitely what it takes to make it big.
