A new chapter is unfolding as young Indonesian talents eagerly prepare to step onto one of the world's most famous stages. Camp Broadway Indonesia (CBI), managed by PT Asa Pentas Mahakarya and PT Indolima Perkasa, proudly holds the exclusive license from Camp Broadway New York, establishing itself as a prominent institution in Indonesia for nurturing talents in singing, dancing, and acting through musical theater.
After successfully sending five representatives to The New York Pops 40th Birthday Gala, hosting Camp Broadway New York - Mainstage, and leaving a lasting impact at the Indonesia Musical Festival, CBI is now gearing up for its next international showcase.
With the support of PT Indolima Perkasa, a leading agency in Indonesia, CBI is set to participate in The New York Pops Birthday Gala's 41st edition at Carnegie Hall. Located in Midtown Manhattan, Carnegie Hall is a world-renowned concert venue and cultural landmark and has hosted countless iconic performances by leading musicians and orchestras.
The New York Pops, led by Music Director and Conductor Steven Reineke, is recognized as the largest independent pop music orchestra in the United States. This year, as they celebrate their 41st anniversary, they pay tribute to the influential Clive Davis, known for collaborations with musical giants like Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, and more.
Open auditions for youths aged 12-17 hoping to grace the prestigious Carnegie Hall stage were held at Rumah Sraddha Semesta, South Jakarta. Model and activist Laura Muljadi, alongside actor and singer Gusty Pratama played crucial roles in selecting the talented participants.
Those who successfully passed the auditions will undergo a comprehensive bootcamp from February to April in Jakarta, focusing on acting, singing, and dancing in preparation for their performance in New York. Adit Marciano, the Co-Founder and Artistic Director of Camp Broadway Indonesia, emphasizes the positive impact of theater education on creativity and character development.
As CBI continues to provide a platform for local talents to shine globally, the journey to Carnegie Hall reflects Indonesia's increasing presence in the international performing arts scene.
