HOUSTON LIVE is a radio talent show that promotes new upcoming original artists of all ages in our community and beyond. "YOU KNOW YOU ARE ALIVE WHEN YOU're TUNED INTO HOUSTON LIVE!"

Performers need to introduce themselves with name, performance genre, composer and one other interesting fact about their performance.  During open mike auditions producers Loreta Kovacic and Bryan McVicker will offer feedback directly to the performers immediately after their performance. Audience will show their approval with their applause. Selected artists will then repeat the same act for the Houston live show. They can improve upon their audition performance but they cannot change their selection. Dr. Loreta Kovacic will ask a few related questions and act as an MC. Bryan McVicker, our recording engineer will record the performance for the radio show. Artists need to accept the fact that this is a live recording, and it will not be edited.  Imperfections are ok. It’s all good at APT.

APT director, Loreta Kovacic is a known Houston artist and theatre director with a doctorate degree in Music Performance from Rice. She is a performer connected to the art community, community in general and to Houston as her hometown.
