Christopher McGinnis Piano Prodigy Personified!

February 6, 2011 Christopher McGinnis, Featured, Young Male Artists A-L 2 Comments

christophermcginnisBorn September 15, 1997, multi-talented thirteen year old Christopher McGinnis is already an exciting entertainer.  With deeply rooted musical influences, he began formal training with his father at the young age of five years old.  Since then, Christopher has studied privately at the Julliard School, and had formal training by many different and diverse teachers. He performed his first concert on Celebrity Cruise Line, which led to his performance at the historic Paramount Theatre in Westchester at the age of ten. Continuing to capture a live audience, he performs at the International Mamapalooza Momedy Comedy Festival at the Broadway Comedy Club  in NYC.

Christopher  is a prolific songwriter.  He has three original Pop tunes, “Dreams Are Made Of”, Time Waits For No One”, and “The War Song an American Hero” which are available on I-Tunes and Amazon.

Listen to them here then go purchase them at one of the links above;


Three years ago he appeared on the Oprah Winfrey’s Website “Most Talented Kids”, having composed a song about Oprah, writing both lyrics and music. After that appearance, he landed on the home page of the Nickelodeon show I-Carly.com, performing a wacky upside down piano trick.

No venue is two large for Christopher, having played Madison Square Garden for the NY Knicks halftime show twice in 2009 and returning again in 2010.

Christopher is the youngest featured pianist with the Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra at the Jazz Standard in NYC.  He performed on piano and vocals in an outdoor concert in Central Park for the Make Music NY festival 2010,  Macys Herald Square, and Times Square.

Christopher appeared in national network television commercials for JVC Camcorders, Super Fresh, and Grandparents.com.  He portrayed Young Indiana Jones with Harrison Ford for the Crystal Skull/Papa John advertisements. One of his favorite radio campaigns was with Jane Curits for the Council Against Substance Abuse. Subsequently, he was cast in two films.

Jeff Goldblum & Christopher McGinnis

Jeff Goldblum & Christopher McGinnis

Christopher landed a lead in the independent NYU film, Hide & Seek .  He’s been cast as a supporting actor in the short Independent film Strawberry-Banana which won the Warner Brothers Film Award in ‘09.   He also became the featured pianist for a documentary called Kids Talk Politics.  Christopher made his television drama debut in Law & Order Criminal Intent’s 2009 season playing opposite Jeff Goldblum and Julianne Nicholson. You can see him in an episode of Will Farrels’ new sitcom Big Lake in August 2010 on Comedy Central. He will also appear in the 2011 season opener for the Electric Company.

Continuing to strive for greatness, Christopher constantly exudes all facets of his personality and gives his all to everything he does.  He is a great athlete.  He is soulful, charismatic, and has an insatiable appetite for knowledge.  Christopher is genuinely entertaining.

On a personal side note, Christopher is a very interesting young man with little time to spare. He is an excellent scholar and an A student. He is also extremely athletic, and excels in just about every sport he plays.  I was amazed when I found out that Christopher played on the Traveling Soccer Team, Track Team, Town Football, Cross Country (always placing in the top 3), Little League Baseball (pitcher), Golf, Swimming, Parasailing, Snowboarding………. And the list goes on!!!!!!   He is currently enjoying basketball being his favorite.

Chris on Beach

He owns a jet ski and is constantly riding it in the summer, taking full advantage of his families River Front property.  Christopher and his friends are always in the water jumping off their dock, making a float out of wood or just having a game of tag in the water.  He has even tried surfing and loves it.   Since Christopher was a little boy he has loved to read about boats and yachts and like most 13 year old boys enjoys playing Xbox live with his on line friends.

His favorite animal is a whale.  In fact, his family adopted one and contributes money to help care for it.  He loves his 105 lb dog Opie which is a Labrador/Shepherd hound mix but looks just like a lab.  Opie was even in a movie with Christopher called Hide & Seek.  You can see Opie on the trailer on Christophers website .  There is another short clip of Opie on his YouTube Channel.

I asked Christopher what some of his most memorable moments in film making and performing were and he replied saying;

Christopher McGinnis as Indiana Jones

Christopher McGinnis as Indiana Jones

“My favorite shoot was portraying Young Indiana Jones.  I really enjoyed swinging high in the air on the tree rope and sliding across the floor, jumping over the dog house and eating 16 slices of Pizza!!!  I was issued a really cool outfit that looked just like Indians Jones.” His mom told me; “The Director Jim Collins was also a fisherman which won Christopher over from the minute he found out.  Christopher actually had a feeling he liked the water and asked him “Are you a fisherman?”

His most exciting performance was the first time he played LIVE at Madison Square Garden for the NY Knicks halftime show.   There were about 25 thousand people there.  Christopher does NOT get stage fright and had a blast playing for the huge crowd.  When walking out of the Garden he told his Mother “I can’t wait to go back there and play again”. Sure enough he got called in one month later to play as guest organist and then 5 months later to play for the NY Liberty girls basketball halftime show.

One of Christopher’s favorite movies is the Titanic.  In fact, he would love to meet or work with Leonardo DiCaprio in the future since he one of his favorite actors.
He also likes Forrest Gump and Tom Hanks and lists his animation favorites as Stuart Little, Shrek, Brother Bear,  and Up to name a few!

Christopher’s daily morning ritual is to stop at his favorite place and eat his favorite breakfast which consists of scrambled eggs and cheese on a Portuguese roll.  Not to worry, Mom said’ “his cholesterol level is just fine!”

They shared something very special with me!

piano

Christopher’s Dad Chris Sr. is also a musician with his main instrument being drums.  Although Christopher has many different piano teachers, Dad is his number 1 mentor. Chris Sr. started him on piano when he was just 5 years old and immediately recognized the special gift young Christopher had.  Christopher and his Dad will jam together daily, which is really amazing to have those moments with your Dad.  Chris Sr. on drums and Christopher on piano.  They also reverse rolls and Christopher hops on the drums while Chris senior holds his own on the piano.  Mom exclaimed “I usually just dance around and have fun shaking the tambourine.” The family hosts some fun parties in the summertime with all their friends in attendance.  In most cases it turns into some kind of musical jam with a bunch of people.

Christopher sites Bill Evan, Chic Chorea, Michel Camilo, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, and Sting as his musical influences.

What to watch for from Christopher:

Christopher will be on The Electric Company’s season opener which airs Monday Feb 7th at 5pm (7pm EST) on PBS.  He will be in a scene where he is in a playground with a few other kids and they call them the Basketball dancers because they do a little street dancing.  In addition Christopher will be playing at the Sugar Bar in NYC in February; the date will be posted on his website.

    URGENT APPEAL FROM THE SPOSATO BROTHERS

    Sposato Brothers Nepal

    A few weeks ago, we posted an update from the Sposato Brothers and their fundraising campaign for Nepalese girls from the Unatti Home. This was before the horrific earthquake that shook Nepal and shocked the world.

    The boys' father, Frankie, sent me some photos and told me:  

    Unati foundation Nepal

    Donate through Indiegogo

    This is all in the area that we were staying and working with the girls. It’s a city called Bhaktapur and one of the oldest in Nepal. The orphan girls are now feeding and helping care for 2000 plus people a day.

    We were just there two weeks ago (we left a week before the earthquake!!!!!!) The country of Nepal is in very rough shape and if you help raise so much as 25$ you are doing a great service to the people there."

     
    He also assured me that the money goes directly to Nepal and they know this as they work directly with two orphanages there.
     
    Click the image above or the following link to access the boys' sister's club Indiegogo page. Please don't delay. Donate and save lives.
     

    DONATE NOW!

    Sposato Brothers show their support for Nepalese girls

    "Children who are trapped in the cycle of extreme poverty and limited opportunity nevertheless are encouraged to express themselves honestly, fearlessly, and happily"

    Unatti Foundation

     

    Milo and Julian (aka The Sposato Brothers) are once again showing their support for the Unatti Foundation in Nepal. The Unatti Home is running a crowd funding campaign to transform the lives of the girls that it cares for. Click the image above to find out how you can be part of this life-changing work.

    Sawyer Fredericks
    Wins The Voice

    Sawyer WinsWatch Sawyer's Original "Please"

    Sawyer Fredericks can finally relax a little now that he has captured the Season 8 title of NBC's "The Voice" under the tutelage of Pharrel Williams.

    Here at Rivenmaster's Place we have never doubted Sawyer's ability to take this all the way to the end and are even more elated that he has now captured the WIN! Since our first article about Sawyer back on March 29th, 2013, we have followed Sawyer's career with great excitement. When we discovered that Sawyer was going to be on Season 8 of The Voice we were very excited for him. While he was surely up against some amazing vocal artists, Sawyer held his own throughout the entire series.

    The voiceSawyer is special to say the least. but he is also just an everyday 16 year old who we were privileged to write about when he was just 13. A hard working farm boy with a passion for music. While he began with an extremely shy and timid personality, he has blossomed into a confidant and mature performing artist in just a few short years. While his experience on "The Voice" helped him expand his fan base, gain valuable experience performing on Television, allowed him to glean from some of the very best in the entertainment business, and even provided him with a new single.... Sawyer never changed who he was and will continue to be as a recording artist.

    While I have to admit that Sawyer's vocals have only gotten better over the years I think I will cherish his first CD "Out My Window" even more now, if for no other reason that it has forever captured the beginning of a Super Star's career.

    If you missed purchasing any of his performance tracks on iTunes VISIT THERE NOW!

    HELP NEEDED!

    SPECIAL APPEAL FOR HELP!

    Sheridan Archbold GO FUND ME

    Rivenmaster's Place has long been a site for supporting all the efforts of young artists. You will often see ads in the sidebars about their new EP's or CD's as well as Special Recognition Awards given for their achievements and contributions to society by their own actions of selflessness. Occasionally there is a need that kind grabs our attention as one to really get behind and support, however it takes more than a website like this to make it happen. It takes all of you who come here to enjoy the music these young prodigies produce and record. That's why we are asking you to personally support Sheridan on his GO FUND ME PAGE. Sheridan really needs to raise enough money to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity.

    Often there is a misunderstanding about these young artists. Many people assume they all come from wealth or Hollywood prosperity... This is not always the case!!! Many of these kids struggle just like you and I with daily life needs while all the time sacrificing even more to obtain their goals which often seem to be just beyond their reach.

    Such is this opportunity for Sheridan. Neither he nor his family have asked me to create this write up or make this SPECIAL APPEAL but I know that it would mean the world to him if you would just CLICK ON THIS LINK and DONATE WHAT YOU CAN! It can be as small as $5.00 or as much as $500 or $1,000. Please understand that there is no donation too small or too large to help Sheridan go to Italy to take part in this wonderful adventure of music and learning.

    PLEASE CONSIDER A DONATION TODAY!

    MattyB-John-Robert Rimel

    Matty B has always impressed since his first appearance on the web! He had a very early article published to theskykid.com which I read with great interest.

Today Matty B released his brand new original single "I Just Wanna Love You" where he teamed up with my good friend John-Robert Rimel who has been featured here and whom I was privileged to meet in person this past summer.

    Cameron Molloy Debut EP

    Cameron Molloy EP

    Rising Young Recording Artist Cameron Molloy just released his debut EP with 5 amazing hit singles. Rivenmaster's Place was delighted to feature Cameron here this past January and now only a few months later his first ever EP hits the online store shelves just for you.

    Without hesitation, I immediately downloaded his new EP knowing that I was going to be in for a real treat. Of course I had already heard some of his songs, but this new 5 song collection was one I just had to have. Get your own copy by visiting iTunes or CD Baby

    You can also purchase physical CD's on the CD Baby Site so be sure to check that out before you make your final decision.
