20 amazing alumni from Sorcerers Safari


No matter how you slice it, camp just wouldn’t be camp without campers!  It shouldn’t surprise you that Neil Croswell (gold medal ‘Magic of China, International Magic Championships” 2015), Bill Cook (three-time award winner at the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas), and Kelvin Kwong (first place Magi-Fest junior close-up, second place IBM junior close-up) have all attended.  Without a doubt, Sorcerers Safari attracts multi-talented and amazing youth.  To mark their upcoming 20th anniversary, flip to page 108 of the 26th edition of VANISH magazine and have a look at "20 amazing alumni from Sorcerers Safari Magic Camp."

Where the magic happens

Keep an eye out for a new web series, Where the Magic Happens, by Jordan Murciano and Garnett Schmidt.

I first met Garnett at Sorcerers Safari in the summer of 2011 and was impressed by his energy and enthusiasm.  It's going to be fun watching these two!

Watch the first episode on YouTube:

Aurora: MindBender in "LETHAL"

From the "LETHAL" - MindBender's First Full Scale Theatre Show's Facebook page:
Rapidly rising Magician/Mentalist - MindBender - will be performing his first full scale theatre show, displaying extraordinary acts of super natural powers and death-defying feats!

At the ripe young age of 13, MindBender appeared on Canada's Got Talent and finished in the top 200 out of thousands of hopeful applicants.

Martin Short (one of the judges) was incredibly impressed with him and said that MindBender has, and I quote, "an absolute natural charm and performer within."

So come check out the future of Magic on July 6th and witness history being made... MindBender in "LETHAL"!

Got Talent: Montréal and semifinalists

The Montréal Canada's Got Talent auditions featured a fun act by Benoit Fournier and David Gaudet.

The second episode of the night had the judges reviewing the 244 promoted acts and attempting to select only 36 acts go to the semifinals. 

Here's a big shout out to all of the magicians featured on the show: Vladimir the Great, Neil Croswell, Ryan Joyce, Mike D'Urzo, Warren Toaze, Jordan Murciano, Edward Stone, Lucas WilsonOslen and Benoit Fournier.  You all did a fabulous job of representing the magic community and raising the profile of magic in the mainstream media with your appearances on CGT!

Unfortunately, of the 36 acts, there was a glimpse of only one magician.  It went by fast and looked like it could have been Oslen from the Vancouver auditions.

Congratulations Oslen!  We're rooting for you!



Edited at 7:00am to add:
  • From Canada Newswire:

    With Canada's overwhelming number of talented performers to choose from, the judges could not contain the number of semifinalists to just 37. Subsequently, two additional acts from the You Tube 'Last Chance Auditions,' sponsored by Nissan, will also be included, bringing the total number of semifinalists to 39. These two acts - the highest vote-getter and one selected by the judges - will be revealed during the first live results show on April 3.

Got Talent: Audition videos for Edward Stone and Jordan Murciano

I've updated Monday's "Got Talent: Toronto and Vancouver do!" post to include information about Edward Stone's appearance and to identify "the young man with fire in his hands" as Jordan Murciano.

With thanks to Edward for sending along information about Roger's Anyplace TV streaming video of both Edward's and Jordan's Toronto auditions! (You'll need to sign-up for an account to view these videos.)

Canada sure does have a lot of talented magicians!

On Canada's Got Talent last night we saw a number of talented magicians!
 
From Toronto Auditions Part 2 (at about the 14 minute mark) we saw clips from, the Neil Croswell segment posted last week, Ryan Joyce, Mike D'Urzo, a gentleman with a cigarette in his ear Warren Toaze and Jordan Murciano a young man with fire in his hand.  It's too bad that they were all spliced together in what felt like under 30 seconds.  Somewhere in there there was also a glimpse of Edward Stone.  They were followed by Lucas Wilson doing a timed, suspended, world record breaking straitjacket escape!  Watch the video of Graeme O'Neil interviewing Lucas on CGT Backstage.
[Thanks to Ian Crawford and Graeme O'Neil for providing Warren Toaze's name!  Thanks also to Edward Stone for pointing me to the Roger's Video Anytime clips!]
Roger's Anyplace TV streamed video of auditions for Edward and Jordan. (These videos are no longer availabe.)

The following YouTube videos are no longer available:
Neil Croswell's audition:


Clips from Ryan Joyce's audition:

Lucas Wilson's audition:

From the Halifax and Vancouver Part 2 show (at about the 35 minute mark) we were treated to The Dance and Illusions of Oslen. From CGT Backstage, watch as Oslen celebrates his standing ovation backstage! 



They showed Neil, Ryan, Mike, Warren, Lucas, Edward and Oslen progressing to the next round!  Congratulations gentleman!  And thank you for doing such a wonderful job of representing magic!


Trivia:  Neil, Mike and Ryan are all Sorcerers Safari Alumni either as campers or counsellors!
