Stars sought in singing competition

Island Star Search finale for Victoria Idol happens Nov. 20

The finale of Island Star Search is fast approaching. The singing competition, which hopes to build on the success of last year’s ReMax Victoria Idol, doubles as a fundraiser for Community Living Victoria. One last preliminary round remains before next month’s semifinals.

The third and final preliminary round goes Nov. 20 at Hermann’s Jazz Club, 753 View St. Two previous prelims were held on Nov. 6 and 8. The top 20 singers from those three rounds will advance to the semi-finals, set for Dec. 11 and 15 at Metro Studio, 1411 Quadra St. The finale will be held on Jan. 23 at the McPherson Playhouse.

Tickets for the final preliminary round and the two semifinals cost $11, and can be purchased at Long & McQuade on Hillside Avenue or online at www.islandstarsearch.com.
