CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Coastal Bend residents will have the opportunity to earn the title of “Corpus Christi Idol 2013” and “Junior Idol of Corpus Christi” again this year and win more than $300 in cash and prizes during the third annual “Corpus Christi Idol” and inaugural “Junior Idol of Corpus Christi” contests.

Both of the solo singing competitions sponsored by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s Department of Theatre and Dance will include performances by the top 20 Junior Idol of Corpus Christi finalists on Friday, Feb. 22, at 7 p.m., and by the top 20 finalists of the Corpus Christi Idol competition on Saturday, Feb. 23, at 7 p.m.

Auditions will be held on Friday, Feb. 15, from 5 to 7 p.m., and Saturday, Feb. 16, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, Feb 17, from 2 to 7 p.m. in the Warren Theatre, located in the Center for the Arts on campus.  Auditions are open to Coastal Bend residents of all ages. Corpus Christi Idol is open to contestants 13 and up and Junior Idol of Corpus Christi is open to contestants ages 12 and under.  Entry fee is $10 per person. Those who audition must be prepared to sing via CD, a cappella, or one’s own accompaniment (i.e. guitar, etc.) 

 “We have had such a positive response from our talented residents 12 and under that we wanted to expand the singing contest to this age group,” said J. Don Luna, Professor of Theatre and faculty sponsor of the event.  “We will have two exciting nights of finals this year.”

The winner for each contest will be selected by the audience each night and announced at the end of the evening.  The first prize winner for each competition will receive $300 and the title of “Junior Idol of Corpus Christi” or the title of “Corpus Christi Idol 2013.”   

General admission for the final performances on Friday, Feb. 22, and Saturday, Feb. 23, is $10 each night. Tickets can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center box office.
