Would you like to perform with Cody Qualls on the TEDx Stage?
Hello all members of Face Academy,
Cody Qualls — accompanied by our Adult members of Face Academy of Music (FAM) and our teen singers ages 13 and up — has been invited to be a guest speaker at the TEDx Youth Talk on Saturday, 4/13/19! Cody will be sharing the story of his own journey, Face Vocal Band’s journey, and eventually the creation of Face Academy of Music (which is why we’d LOVE to have you there). This is a rare opportunity to perform at a TEDx event! Professional speakers, educators and artists from around the globe clamor every year to receive this prestigious honor. And now you can be a part of it!! However, TEDx is holding a slot for us for a very limited time to organize our group, so we need your registration absolutely no later than 10pm on Monday, 3/18/19 to confirm our participation.
This Face Academy EXCLUSIVE performance opportunity package includes:
- Entry to the Vail TEDx Youth Talks and access to the full TEDx experience including giveaways, swag, food tastings, and onsite experiences, as well as entry to watch the other speakers on stage that day. Your registration includes the cost of entry – no additional ticket purchase needed to attend and participate in this event!
- Performance of Face’s original smash “Back and Forth,” backing up Cody Qualls on stage. Back and Forth will be the music selection we learn as a group. This opportunity is primarily for our Adult FAM members, and our teen singers ages 13 and up are welcome to join, too!
- Downloadable sheet music (please print and bring with you to rehearsal or use .pdf for tablet). Your music on your tablet or printed sheet music is REQUIRED for rehearsal.
- Practice tracks to learn your music (must be memorized for the show).
- Two 60-90 minute rehearsals with Cody Qualls of Face Vocal Band within the Boulder County area.
We have an amazing opportunity to make this super-affordable to encourage more participation, however spacing is limited. This offering is available to only 40-50 participants. The popularity of this offering will determine the space we need to accommodate our members. Men are HIGHLY encouraged to join and are absolutely necessary to make this work! If we don’t have enough men to sing the low part, we may not be able to participate at all. Of course, all of our womenfolk are necessary, too!

Battle Mountain High School
