Do you have what it takes to win a singing competition? Or maybe your child has an amazing voice that he or she wants to show off to the world. Either way, you have to check out the Young Voices 2018 Singing Competition, which will take place on Saturday, Oct. 20 starting at 10 a.m. This competition is staged by the Choral Society of Pensacola, and they are looking for the best voices in the area. It’s a four-state competition that will highlight some of the most talented individuals in the area. Get the details to determine if this might be the right competition for you or your loved one.
This competition isn’t just for anyone who can sing. In fact, it’s only for young people. That gives them a fairer shot at competing with each other. For singers to participate in the competition, they have to be between the ages of 14 and 30, and they have to be enrolled in a high school or college in Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, or Alabama. There are three divisions in which competitors can participate. The first division is specifically for high school-aged kids. The second division is for freshman and sophomores in college, while the third division is for juniors and seniors in college. Make sure you fit these requirements before you apply.
How It Works
Participating singers will choose two choral selections that they will then perform in front of the judges. These songs must be art songs or operatic arias, so don’t show up expecting to sing a pop tune. The songs must be memorized before the competition. One of the songs will be sung in English, so that should make things easier.

If you win the competition, you’ll be able to participate in the Choral Society’s concert, which is taking place on Nov. 1. There is also a cash prize. The high school winner will get $300, while the runner-up will win $150. The prize for college students is a bit higher, with the winners receiving $500 and the runners-up getting $250.
