Calling all singers, choirs, bands, and musicians in the parishes of the Diocese of Evansville!
My Parish Has Talent is an opportunity to showcase the talent within the parishes of our diocese. Three acts will be chosen to perform during our annual gala on April 6th, 2019. The audience will then vote on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place with a cash prize awarded! This event was formerly known as MEO Tri-State Idol and we welcome soloists, choirs, and instrumental groups from any parish or parish school in the Diocese of Evansville.
I’m interested (or I know someone’s who’s interested)!
Here’s what you need to know before you audition...
The chosen acts MUST be in attendance at the gala on April 6th. Logistics will be worked out according to the group’s needs.
A sound system will be provided.
Musical acts must provide their own instruments and/or accompanying music.
All groups chosen to perform during the gala must attend an in-person rehearsal before the event. Date TBD.
Contest is open to 8th grade-12th grade students, college students, and adults. Students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For students under 16, audition videos must be sent via a parent or guardian’s email address.
