When we took our final bows of the season on December 29th, we also took our final bows with vocalist Kyle Segarra.
Kyle has been a member of Twelve Twenty-Four since 2010. When he joined, he was a nineteen-year-old with plenty of theater experience, but this was his first foray fronting a live band. Over the past six years, we have had the pleasure of watching him grow not only as a performer and singer, but more importantly as an exceptional young man and close friend.
Kyle’s role in Twelve Twenty-Four increased as his experience with us grew. His talent, stage presence, and energy shaped our band and took us to a new level. He also influenced us creatively and collaborated with musical director Jason Santos in composing our original song, Light in the Dark.
For the past three seasons, Kyle has spent countless hours on buses commuting from Philadelphia to rehearse and perform with Twelve Twenty-Four. We will never forget this unwavering dedication to make us the successful band we are today.
Kyle is now back in Philadelphia pursuing his dreams of being a full-time actor/performer. We are honored that we were able to share the stage with him the past six years and are proud of him as he pursues his professional aspirations.
Congratulations, Kyle! We wish you success and joy in your new adventure. Great things await you and we know that you will become a major force in the Philadelphia arts and entertainment scene. Thank you for everything you have done to add to our successes! We already miss you dearly. Break a leg!
