DELLY FORTGANG RECEIVES 2015 BEST BUSINESSES OF LAS VEGAS/HENDERSON AWARD IN THE VOCAL PERFORMANCE COACH CATEGORY
Delly Performed at events for Senator Harry Reid and Congressman Joe Heck.
Delly Fortgang is the #1 Vocal Performance Technique Coach in the Las Vegas Valley.
She is a singer, music teacher, creator & producer of the Future Stars Showcase, and co-founder of Showbiz Kidz, a non-profit, tax exempt 501 (3c)organization.
It all begins with Delly and her ability to bring out the talent of her students and allow them to achieve a high level of success in vocal and performance. Simply put, she works hard with each student and develops a vocal plan to make success unavoidable and teaches from the heart.
Students of all levels and ages come to Delly for vocal instruction. Some are “pitchy” beginners, with only the interest in wanting to develop their vocal skills and techniques to become a singer/performer. Some are experienced, trained vocalists with performance skills and resumes who are looking to improve their vocal skills. Delly guides these singers to a higher level of performance through her individualized vocal exercises, explains and demonstrates each vocal technique (riffs, ad-libs, song styling, connecting ranges, singing with passion) and provides the instruction and patience for these advanced students to reach a higher level of success and improve their performance skills.
In college, Delly produced, directed, and choreographed musical productions for the music department and while teaching at the high school level, directed a musical for the graduating students. Then she landed the lead female role in a version of “Miss Saigon”.
In the Las Vegas area, Delly performs at weddings, dinner-parties, and conventions at many resorts including Mandalay Bay, the Plaza, the Hilton, Harrahs, Stardust, and many more! She recently performed with Kelly Clinton at Turnberry Towers (Stirling Club) and at Mandalay Bay for the Choice Hotels and National Medical Association corporate events. Delly also performed the National Anthem at the Las Vegas 51’s Baseball Game at Cashman Field. Delly makes time to perform with the “Voices of Hope Singers” as one of their soloists. Delly recently performed at The Smith Center (Cabaret Jazz) in February, 2013.
Delly earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and has been teaching music for the Clark County School District part-time for 22 years. She has been working with vocal students for nearly 20 years.
Delly has co-produced productions raising thousands of dollars for a Benefit for the Philippines, American red Cross,Secret Witness, and victims of the Oklahoma City Bombing Disaster. Delly is happily married (25 years) and has two wonderful, talented sons, Barry (23) and Tanner (18).
Delly’s singers are in demand. Through Fortgang Music Productions, her talented Soloists, 5-21, perform at the Sam’s Town and Suncoast Showrooms and share the stage with well known Las Vegas entertainers! These performance opportunities are extremely valuable!
