Youth Voice Auditions entry deadline March 26

If you want to take part in the Cowichan Youth Voice Auditions, April 5, it’s time to register.

Co-sponsored by the Cowichan Aboriginal Festival of Film & Art and Lila Music Centre, this event offers a stage for all kinds of performances by youths who want to further develop their voices.

The event is open to all people in the Cowichan region, ages 15-29, and is not strictly limited to singing.

These awards also cover songwriting, beat boxing, poetry, hip hop, spoken word, animation voice over – anything that expresses itself through the voice.

Getting involved is a three-step process: submit your work, register for the voice workshop and then take part in a live audition.

The deadline for registration is March 26.

The workshop, with Michelle Tremblay and Cari Burdett, is scheduled for Saturday, March 29 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at Lila Music Centre on Gibbins Road.

It all winds up with a special awards night at the Cowichan Theatre, held as part of the Cowichan Aboriginal Film Festival.
