The 2015 Dan Emmett Music & Arts Festival will hold its 10th annual
Knox Idol Competition. This friendly singing contest showcases some of
the area’s leading vocal talent, and allows the public to determine the
top musical performers in Knox County. Performers will sing their hearts
out at a chance to win Knox Idol in one of two categories: Youth (ages
14 to 18) and Young Adult (ages 19 to 29). This year’s Young Adult first
place receives a $1,000 cash prize, second place $100. The Youth first
place award is $200, and second place $50.
Auditions will be held
on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. in ThePlace@TheWoodward. The
top contestants will be selected by a panel of local judges. Last
year's Knox Idol judges were Marcy Rhinehart from MVNU and Corey Strinka
from Highland High School.
The Semi-Finals of the Knox Idol
competition will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 13 on the
First-Knox South Stage. The Knox Idol Finals will take place at 8:00 pm
on Friday, August 14 on the First-Knox Main Stage. Contestants will
perform before a live audience during both rounds of the competition.
The audience will determine the fate of each contestant during each
round. Ballot sets will be available for purchase for those wishing to
vote for a $1 donation. All proceeds collected during Knox Idol will be
donated to the Woodward Opera House restoration project.
