On April 16, 2014, Imagyro Magazine gave an April update on news in the areas of art, music, sci-fi, authors, conventions and more. One of their latest news updates is about a music festival called Five Star City Fest.

The music festival will be held May 9-10 from 5:30 to midnight. Events offered at the fest will be arts and crafts vendors, children's activities, refreshments, all day live entertainment on two stages, demonstrations plus games and rides in the children's area.

The festival will be on the day before Mother's Day, so that might be good timing for those people looking for Mother's Day gifts. To learn more about this festival, its activities and more of what it has to offer visit "Imagryo" online and on Facebook.

"Imagyro" includes news on horror, fantasy, science fiction and steampunk. It is the official magazine of Imagicopter out of Memphis, Tenn. representing the Mid-South. Within each genre are categories of authors, artists, musicians, author fairs, interviews, conventions, and more. Enjoy more on "all things 'Imagyro'" at Photos & Videos.

Imagicopter is a group of writers dedicated to encouraging, improving, and promoting their own and other's work while helping the community at large. They began from a modest number of writers, and now they encompass writers and artists from these states - Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, Arkansas, Illinois and Alabama. "Imagyro" is their magazine, and it helps share and update members and readers as to what they are up to when it comes to new books, art, music, events and more!

According to Herika R. Raymer, lead editor of Imagyro, the magazine features articles on where they have been as well as interviews with Imagicopter and non-Imagicopter talent in an effort to raise awareness of lesser known storytellers and artists.

This sci-fi magazine can be enjoyed only online, although if one wishes to have it in print feel free to download or contact the writer directly at This magazine has this to say, "May your Imagination always soar!"

Although the idea of a multi-day, multi-venue music festival has been bruited since the mid-'80s.

Treefort itself had its roots in tragedy when producer Lori Shandro's husband died in a private plane crash in 2009.

The head of an independent health insurance agency, Shandro in taking up interests divergent from her married life eventually formed The Duck Club, which brings musical acts to Boise throughout the year and which now produces the Treefort Music Fest. - Wiki

Months before any bands had even been announced for the Second Annual Treefort Music Fest, scheduled for March 21–24, 2013, the initial batch of early-bird priced wristbands had sold out in October 2012 in 17 minutes.

Treefort 2013 eventually signed up more than 250 bands (some of whom are included in Treefort's sound cloud) and features a lost yarn-bombed 560 lbs. monster (which is sorely missed) with a stone head as its mascot. The Coachella Festival has been compared (unfavourably) to the Treefort Music Fest by Buzzfeed. - Wiki

In August 2010 "Imagyro" was launched at the first year anniversary of the voluntary writer/artist coop Imagicopter. It was an idea proposed by Memphis artist Mitch Foust, the magazine features Imagicopter and non-Imagicopter talent each month.

The second annual Treefort Music Fest aimed at the fence "carefully," featuring a more diverse set of acts, but also more than 100 Idaho bands, one of which, Boise-based Youth Lagoon, was one of Rolling Stone's "Twenty Must-See Acts" at SXSW.

It and Foxygen and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, also included in the twenty, performed at both festivals in 2013. The headline act was Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, and fifteen bands came from the San Francisco Bay Area.

Three times as many passes were sold as in 2012; the festival's own app overloaded on Thursday night, and the opening venue, the Shriner's El Korah shrine, sold a record amount of alcohol. Festival organizers later estimated that they had come within 100 passes of selling out completely; more than 3,000 4-day passes were sold, and thousands variously journeyed to 13 venues throughout downtown Boise to watch more than 260 bands, with roughly 6,000 at the main stag

Sheet Music

A vocal score (or, more properly, piano-vocal score) is a reduction of the full score of a vocal work (e.g., opera, musical, oratorio, cantata, etc.) to show the vocal parts (solo and choral) on their staves and the orchestral parts in a piano reduction (usually for two hands) underneath the vocal parts.

The purely orchestral sections of the score are also reduced for piano. If a portion of the work is a cappella, a piano reduction of the vocal parts is often added to aid in rehearsal (this often is the case with a cappella religious sheet music). While not meant for performance, vocal scores serve as a convenient way for vocal soloists and choristers to learn the music and rehearse separately from the instrumental ensemble. The vocal score of a musical typically does not include the spoken dialogue, except for cues. - Wiki
