Hey, do that!

Discover your inner artist this summer

The worst thing a kid can say in summer is “I’m bored!” It’s even less forgivable when an adult says the same. There’s so much interesting stuff to do in summer!

This Sunday, you can audition to be an extra in a metro-shot movie over the next five weeks! “Yellow” stars Heather Wahlquist, Gena Rowlands, Melanie Griffith and Hank Azaria. That’s pretty much all I can find on the content of the film. Churchgoers, theatregoers, doctors, inmates, prison guards, schoolchildren, parents, teachers, restaurant patrons, pedestrians and passersby are all needed extras, so there will be a lot of different scenes (or one church/theater/jail/hospital). Those interested in the open call should show up between 1 and 5 p.m. at The Actor Factory, 3750 W. Main in Norman. Questions can be directed to YellowMovieExtras@gmail.com.

Austin artist Chris Lawhorn did a cover medley of two Guided by Voices songs (“Little Whirl” and “My Valuable Hunting Knife”), but he doesn’t like the way he sang it. So he’s letting other people take a crack at singing over his instrumental version for possible future release. It’ll only cost you a dollar. Who knows, this could be the start of your career! Check the deets here.

Once you’ve started your vocal career over there, you can jump in on a choir for your first live performance. The 125th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty is this year, so a concert series called “Let Freedom Ring, Sing and Swing” will be staging events in Tulsa, Moore and Claremore. If you’re interested in joining a 100-voice choir to sing at the July 9 Moore date, all you have do is head on over to this site. No joke.  

Maybe singing and acting aren’t up your alley. If you’re at least 14 years old and have two or more years of experience on an instrument, you can register for the University of Central Oklahoma’s Summer Jazz Performance Workshop. From June 20-24, you can get schooled in the coolest way possible under the tutelage of the jazz faculty and grad students. Workshops, master classes, jam sessions and more will go down. Hit up the Jazz Lab’s website for more details. It’s $250.

The lab is also holding a Modern Recording Technology Summer Workshop July 11-15. That one’s $300.

So get out there and do something awesome, Oklahoma. There’s more than enough stuff to do. —Stephen Carradini
