Audition for 2nd annual NEPA Sings competition at Wyoming Seminary in Kingston on Feb. 9
From a press release:
Start warming up those vocals – the Wilkes-Barre nonprofit organization Court Appointed Special Advocates of Luzerne County has announced that its NEPA Sings competition will return to the Kirby Center for the Creative Arts on Wyoming Seminary’s Upper School campus in Kingston this April.
Auditions for the second annual event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Kirby Center for the Creative Arts (260 N. Sprague Ave., Kingston). Check-in starts that morning at 9:30 a.m., and auditions will start at 10 a.m.
12 of the area’s most talented vocalists will be selected to compete in the finals on Thursday, April 11 at 5:30 p.m. at the KCCA for the title of NEPA Sings champion and some “amazing prizes.” Last year, the prizes included tickets to a Broadway show with round trip transportation and the opportunity to perform the winning song on “PA Live!” on WBRE-TV.
All proceeds will benefit CASA of Luzerne County, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides community volunteers – Court Appointed Special Advocates or CASAs – for every one of the 400+ Luzerne County children removed from their homes because of abuse or serious physical neglect. They serve as the voice of abused and neglected children so that these kids will be safe, secure, and given the opportunity to thrive.
Established in 2013, CASA of Luzerne County is part of the National CASA Association. There are currently over 1,000 CASA/GAL programs in 49 states recruiting, training, and supporting a network of volunteers to represent the best interests of children in their respective communities.
