Siobhan Magnus first became part of the country’s collective pop cultural consciousness as a finalist on the ninth (2010) season of “American Idol.” The 21 year old crooner who hails from Barnstable, Massachusetts, has been successful touring many local concert venues, including Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, and is about to open the SS&C SummerWind Performing Arts Center in Windsor, Connecticut this Saturday.
Magnus, who just released her first single, “Beatrice Dreams,” which she also co-wrote, quickly became a stand-out star on her season of “American Idol” for her quirky sense of style and a vocal range reminiscent of Janis Joplin.
For her performance at Summerwind, she’ll be teaming up with the Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra, who are known for their fist-pumping covers of classics from The Beatles, David Bowie, Queen, Led Zeppelin, and others. The concert atmosphere will be open air, as reserved seating is under a tent and general admission is lawn seats where guests must bring their own chairs.
The SS&C SummerWind Performing Arts Center kicks off its new season on August 6 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for Siobhan Magnus and Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra performance are $40 to $75 and are available by going to the SS&C SummerWind Performing Arts Center website.
