John Tosco is the founder of the nonprofit organization Tosco Music Parties Inc. TMP produces a quarterly music showcase of professional and amateur musicians of all styles of music. It also has outreach efforts to support music education scholarships and share the gift of live music with those who might not otherwise experience it. Tosco also owns Tosco Music Studio, which he opened in 2002, and has instructors teaching guitar, piano, drums and voice. In 2004, Charlotte Magazine highlighted Tosco in its Best of the Best series as “Impresario of the Year.”
If you ask Tosco, there’s something to be said for great variety shows, especially on New Year’s Eve. For the first three years, the show was held at the 700-seat McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square. After selling out that theater, it was decided to move the show to the nearly 1,200-seat Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts. Because of the Knight Theater’s size, Tosco says they can do more things like aerial acts, and use projection screens for the ultimate show experience.
John Tosco’s 4th Annual New Year’s Eve Variety Show runs from 8 to 10 p.m. with a 20-minute intermission, which makes it easy to bring kids and provide a family-friendly entertainment option after dinner and before the midnight count-down festivities.
