SILER CITY, N.C. — Registration is now open for Sing and Play ’19, the second-annual musical competition scheduled for February at Jordan-Matthews High School.
Sing and Play highlights musical talent in separate competitions for elementary, middle and high school musicians. Vocalists and instrumentalists who are students in a North Carolina public, private or home school may register through January 29 to receive an audition appointment and perform either as an individual or in an ensemble of up to four musicians.
Acts selected during auditions on February 5 will participate in the Sing and Play ’19 Showcase Competition on February 21, where audience members will select the winner in each age-based competition. General admission to the showcase is $5 per person. Each of the three winning acts receives a $50 cash prize.
Rules and registration information are available online at JMArts.org/events/.
“This will be a great show. Our community really enjoyed it last year,” said Greg Burriss, director of this season's competition. “But we really want to provide this opportunity for young musicians to sing and play before a live audience, to have that challenge and experience in this supportive environment. For students interested in performing, even the audition can be an educational opportunity."
Sing and Play ’18 winners were Kaitlyn Evans of Chatham Charter School, Edith Soto of Chatham Middle School and Corrine Collison of Jordan-Matthews High School.
Sing and Play is produced by JMArts, the Jordan-Matthews Arts Foundation. All proceeds from the event are used by JMArts to help high school artists thrive. More about the foundation and competition is available online at JMArts.org.
