We are excited to announce that we will be holding a Youth Solo Competition at our upcoming Divisional Family Camp on Saturday, August 24 at Camp Hoblitzelle. This will be a wonderful opportunity for your young people to share their gifts, and prepare them to take part in your local worship!
There are a good number who have preliminarily signed up for the solo competition, so they will need to select the appropriate test items found in the link below.
Young people from ages 6-18 will be allowed to compete in 4 mediums:
Participants may choose to compete in more than one section. I know there are many multi-talented young people, and we don't want to restrict them!
Follow this link to see all test items.
Each contestant will choose 1 test item to perform (There will be 2 options for each section with varying style or difficulty level.)
Each brass and vocal solo has recorded accompaniments as well as demonstration recordings. (Brass solos can be played on Bb or Eb instruments. Just use the Eb or Bb accompaniment depending on the instrument)
For Drama Monologue, there are options for male or female scripts
Where: Coffield Conference Center
When: Saturday, August 24 - 9:00 AM - 12:00 Noon
Each contestant will be assigned a time slot for their performance. The schedule will be published so that everyone knows when and where to be. Parents, corps officers, etc. are welcomed and encouraged to come and listen and support their young people as the perform.
We will present trophies to winners during the Saturday Evening General Session. We will be asking the 1st place winner from each section to perform either in that Saturday evening (Brass and Drama Monologue) or Sunday Morning Worship (Solo Dance and Vocal), so winners will be notified earlier so they can be prepared.
Write Jeffrey Barrington to sign up for this exciting event!
