OH MY BECK! Vocalist and Recording Artist Daniel Beck at SCERA March 5-6

(Orem, Utah) — Singer Daniel Beck might be living in California, but the performer described by distinguished Utah choral director Craig Jessop as “Utah’s answer to Josh Groban” is returning to his home county to perform two concerts at the SCERA Center for the Arts in March.

The March 5 show sold out so quickly that SCERA added a second concert for Tuesday, March 6. Both shows will begin at 7 p.m. in Showhouse II (745 S. State St., Orem). Reserved-seat tickets at $14 for adults, and $12 for children 3-11 and seniors 65 and older are available at www.scera.org, by calling 801-225-ARTS, or in person at the main office between 10am-6pm weekdays.

 Beck, who is known not only for his polished and powerful voice, but also his appearance in the “Liken the Scriptures” DVD series and Especially for Youth albums, says he wants to bring a warmth to the evening reminiscent of walking into his living room and having him give you a personal performance.

“I’m putting together a concert with a lot of variety in it, with favorites and few guilty pleasures,” he says. “I will highlight songs from my inspirational albums, a generous sampling of musical theater, and will even put in a dance segment highlighting the effects of dancing on my life.  I’m calling it the Daniel Beck Family Evolution of Dance. There will be dancing from the ‘80s at the Gold and Green Balls, dancing at Provo’s Palace in the ‘90s, plus some ballroom and contemporary dance.”

Musical numbers will include “The Impossible Dream” from “Man of La Mancha”; “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables”; and “Maria” from “West Side Story.” He and his guest artist, Melinda Lockwood deBirk, will perform the duet, “The Prayer.”

 “Melinda is a wonderful vocal performer and actress who has done extensive performing with the LDS Church in such productions as ‘Savior of the World’ and the Nauvoo Pageant,” Beck explains.

“We brought in Daniel Beck a few years ago for a Christmas concert, and the audience reception was spectacular,” says Adam Robertson, SCERA president and CEO. “His charming personality and considerable talent permeated the auditorium.”

“I’m happy to be performing for a hometown crowd,” Beck says.  And when that Utah Valley crowd gets their first taste of his charming personality and vocal prowess, the hometown audience will be happy, too.
