Talented Kelowna returns

Do you know someone who has a talent worth sharing? Would you be interested in winning cash, audio recording time, and have a professional video company make a music video for you? What about an opportunity to share you talent at the Kelowna Community Theatre for the finale or a performance with Festivals Kelowna in 2014?
Well folks Talented Kelowna is back up and running and this year the prizes have doubled over last years.
We have over $8000 in cash and prizes up for grabs to this falls top three acts. 
Here is a video I shot at our first night of Talented Kelowna this past Saturday. Jeff Piattelli and Torrey Woody are our two qualifiers from the evening and you'll soon see why.
Each week for the next 4 weeks at Freddy's Brewpub on Saturday nights the judges will be selecting the top two acts from the contestants to go on to the finals on Oct 26th. As noted the top 3 acts on October 26th will go onto win a spot at the show at Nov 7th KCT concert. Tickets available here.
Here is an interactive poster created for the event.

About the Author

Ryan Donn is a singer/songwriter, event producer, digital creative, and Councillor at the City of Kelowna

I love creating songs, which have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations. 

In the past few years, I've focused on creating community events including Music in the Park, New York New Years, Castanet’s Free Family Skate, Talented Kids, Talented Kelowna, and others.

Originally from Scotland, I’ve lived in Kelowna for over 20 years. My wife, Kimberly, and our two daughters, Lyla and Bella, share our home with Tom (adult with diverse abilities).

In 2014, I was elected to Kelowna City Council. 

Opinions are my own, and don't represent the City of Kelowna, Festivals Kelowna or Creative Okanagan.
