A little bit of Hollywood has come to Plainview. The Loft Sound Studio, a Plainview-based vocal and performance training facility, is the creation of lifelong music artists Donnie Klang and Matthew LaPorte. The duo says that they draw upon their personal experience of the ups and downs of the recording industry to give kids today the chance to be superstars.

“Essentially, we’re looking for the next Justin Bieber, someone we can train and teach them how to really become an artist, put them on YouTube and hope they really blow up,” said LaPorte. “If they do, through our connections that we made while we were in the music industry the past 15 years, we would try and get them a record deal.”

On Sunday, Nov. 2 the 23-piece Concert Festival Orchestra presented a concert at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library of Grand Prix Winners from its 2014 Concerto Competition.

Conducted by Maestro Vladimir Polezhayev, the concert featured four pianists in the first half and two violinists and a vocalist in the second.
