Algonkian’s Got Talent, a friendly competition to showcase local youth singers, musicians, and dancers put on by Supervisor Juli E. Briskman (D-Algonkian) will return for a second year.
“Arts are essential to a well-rounded education and is important to create artistic outlets for all of Loudoun’s youth,” said Briskman. “Through AGT, students can showcase their wonderful talents and gain the recognition they deserve for being so dedicated to their craft. Last year’s winner was asked to sing the national anthem at the state-of-the-county. And she was fantastic!”
The competition is accepting submissions until October 18th in the categories of solo instrumental and vocal; group musical act (band, choir); dance (solo, paired, group); or miscellaneous (comedy, spoken word, ventriloquist). A panel of judges composed of local music teachers and musicians will review and asses based on technical and entertainment value. The winners will be announced during the award ceremony, at a local venue to be determined, and live-streamed on Facebook, on Thursday, Nov. 18 at 7 p.m.
Algonkian’s Got Talent is open to entrants aged 9-18, who live in or have at least one member of their group that lives in the Algonkian District or attends a school that includes residents assigned from the district. More information is online at BIT.LY/AGTTWO.
