HIT Idol Season 7 Audition Dates Announced
Published on Thursday, Jul. 13, 2017
Audition dates for Season 7 of the popular HIT Idol youth vocal contest were announced recently. Singers participate in one of three different age categories:
* 5th through 8th Grade
* 9th through 12th grade
* Young adult - 18 thru 29 years of age.
Young vocalists who wish to try out for this year's show should make a note of the following audition dates and times:
Saturday September 30, 2017 10a - 2p
Sunday October 1, 2017 Noon - 4p
Enter through the main concourse entrance on Aurora Street, and bring either:
* sheet music so one of the show's musical directors can accompany your audition, or
* your own accompanist, or
* a CD with backing track, or
* a smartphone with the song downloaded. Please note: The WI-FI signal in the theatre mezzanine can be unpredictable, so do not rely on being able to stream music live. Please capture and save your music before you come to the theatre.
To keep the show fresh for both audience and participants, each year we add a few songs to our "songs not to be inlcuded" list. Typically they are numbers that have been done numerous times previously, or were performed last years. To make sure you don't prepare a song that cannot be included in our Season 7 show, click here to get the list.
HIT Idol Season 7 will be presented on Friday, November 3, 2017 with the six (6) winners announced on Saturday November 4, 2017 just prior to the concert by American Idol Season 9 winner, Lee DeWyze. All the singers who make it through the auditions into the show will get to perform a couple of numbers on stage with DeWyze on Saturday night.
Pictured above are Season 6 winners with American Idol, Jessica Meuse, and at right, Lee DeWyze.
