“Voice of the Mother Lode Fair” is a singing competition that will take place at the Mother Lode Fair this year.
Sandi Romena, host and organizer of the competition, was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
There are no age limits. Participants could potentially range anywhere from five to one hundred five. This is not like the previous Mother Lode Idol competition, that used to be held annually during the Fair.
Romena stressed that this is a vocal competition and it is not a talent show. Singers will need to provide a Compact Disc that contains the music of the songs (without vocals) that they will be singing too.
As of now, “Voice of the Mother Lode” will run both Friday night and Saturday night on the Muir Stage beginning at 8 PM. The final competition will take place Sunday night at 8 PM. If there are not enough singers, the competition will be limited to Saturday and Sunday nights.
The audience will be able to participate in judging by texting their favorite singers. There will also be official judges for the Sunday night show.
The deadline to apply by is noon on Thursday July 7th.
For more information call Romena at (209) 694-3178. Applications can be found today and tomorrow morning at the Mother Lode Fair office or they can be downloaded from the Mother Lode Fair website.
The KVML “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard every weekday morning on AM 1450 and FM 102.7 KVML at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45 am.
