NAPERVILLE, IL — Singers of all ages are invited to participate in the Singing at the Fling competition at the 2016 Naperville Jaycees Last Fling.
Open call auditions will be held on Saturday, Aug. 20 at Madden Theatre located downstairs in Wentz Concert Hall and Fine Arts Center in Naperville.
Auditions are open to singers age 7 and up; adults are welcome to audition.
No pre-registration is required; singers may come to auditions from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
“We are excited to see local talent of all ages come out to shine,” said Danielle Tufano, Singing at the Fling Co-Chair and Morning Co-Host of Mackay in the Morning on 95.9 The River. “This is one of the few singing competitions that encourages both adults and children to participate.”
Singing at the Fling Finals will be held at the Entertainment Stage at the Last Fling at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 3, and the first place winners in each age group will sing on the Main Stage on Monday, Sept. 5 at 1:30 p.m.
Singers may prepare one song of up to three minutes in length (no exceptions), and they must provide their own instrumental accompaniment or audio backing track. Both solo singers and duos/groups are welcome to audition. A panel of judges will decide on one solo singer winner per age category; age categories are to be determined after auditions. There will be one separate category for duos/groups. Please note that for timing purposes, only portable, hand held instruments will be allowed (ie, no drum sets or pianos/keyboards).
