Calling all Coachella Valley Singers: Battle it out for the $2,500.00 Grand Prize in Rancho Mirage on January 13th.
The 6th Annual Voice of the Valley Vocal Competition is moving from the San Jacinto Valley to the Coachella Valley in search of new talent.
AY Productions and UK Dance Academy are teaming up to bring together the best that the valley has to offer and showcase them at the Voice of the Valley Grand Finale at the Helene Galen Theatre in Rancho Mirage on January 13th 2017.
In 2011, Alexander Yepremian, Artistic Director of AY Productions, created a local singing competition called Voice of the Valley, the search for San Jacinto Valleys Top Vocalists. The competition featured the top 10 singers in a Semi-Formal, Red Carpet Event that astonished a sold out audience of over 500 residents of The San Jacinto Valley. The audience was overwhelmed with the abundance of talent and the quality of production. All in attendance wanted more and so for the next 5 years, they gave the valley what they wanted.
Voice of the Valley is entering its 6th year, however, this year it is moving the location in order to showcase the incredible talents that the Coachella Valley has to offer. In order to increase the level of talent and exposure for the event, they are staging auditions in Palm Springs, Palm Desert and Indio. This year there is no age limit or style restrictions, they want you to be you and put your best voice forward.
Not only are they expanding their audience and talent base, but each year they add more production value to the Grand Finale. The Top 10 Finalists will not only compete based on their solo numbers but will be taught two group numbers, Choreographed by Ben Smith of UK Dance Academy. Voice of the Valley is different to any Vocal Competition the Valley has seen, it will be a show that our community can be proud of.
There will be three audition locations, in Palm Springs on November 12th from 2:00pm-4:00pm at Alibi Azul Palm Springs, 369. N Palm Canyon Dr.; in Indio on November 17th from 5:00pm-7:00pm at Indio Performing Arts Center Playhouse, 45-175 Fargo Street; and in Palm Desert on November 23rd from 4:00pm-6:00pm at YMCA of the Desert, 43-930 San Pablo Ave.
