Lake Country Open Mic Has Talent

For the third year, Lake Country Open Mic Has Talent is organizing events to spotlight original singers and songwriters from the Okanagan.

Jennifer Boal, founder of Lake Country Open Mic Has Talent, wants to as you, “Have you ever wanted to showcase your singing and songwriting talents?”

“The annual contest was designed to spotlight original singers/songwriters and give them the opportunity to win some studio recording time and performance opportunities," explains Boal. 

"The multi-evening contest allows performers, over the age of 12, to showcase their music for a panel of judges, and experience the positive feedback from a small live audience,” she adds.

Dates for the 2014 contest are set for 6-8pm on February 5, March 5, and April 9 at the Lake Country Coffee House.

“I’ve been amazed by some of the talented young people from Lake Country that have participated in the annual contest!,” exclaims Boal.

Brief video clips of 2012 and 2013 performers are available at www.lakecountryopenmic.ca to give you a flavor of the talent we have locally.

Performer prizes include professional audio recording/production time with Dan Marcelino of DMA Studios as well as opportunities to perform through the Lake Country Open Air Performance Society, Parks Alive, ArtWalk, and the IPE.

The 2013 Talent co-winners went on to perform at the 2013 Canada Day evening event hosted by Lake Country Open Air Performances at Beasley Park.

Registration forms for the 2014 contest are available at the Lake Country Coffee House at 10345 Bottom Wood Lake Road in Lake Country, or can be downloaded from the website at www.lakecountryopenmic.ca.
