Established in 1953, the Mid-South Fair Youth Talent Contest is dedicated to the discovery, development and encouragement of young amateur entertainers from an eight-state region who have performed in the hopes of being recognized and catapulted to fame. Each year, the Youth Talent Committee selects deserving acts from a field of thousands of contestants at more than 150 preliminary contests. Talented individuals and groups compete in preliminaries sponsored by clubs, schools, county fairs and civic groups for the chance to perform in the contest.  This contest has served as a launching pad for the careers of many noteworthy performers. Elvis Presley is probably one of the most famous participants. Other notables include Justin Timberlake and Lance Bass, Contemporary Christian singer Clay Crosse as well as Pop and R&B singer Wendy Moten. Patsy Cline was a sweepstakes winner at the Fair.

Back to Basics

Visions wants to get back to basics and teach our students the importance of the technical aspects of music and how it can empower their vocal capabilities. Whether pursuing commercial, musical theatre, or classical music, this recital is based off the model most colleges utilize for their voice majors   Students will be exposed to varied styles of vocal repertoire, including: Musical Theater, Classical Art, as well as Folk Songs with a primary focus on healthy classical technique. The student will learn the foundation of reading sheet music, which will help further the development of basic music skills.  Each teacher will designate a song that will challenge the specific student musically. The primary focus for song selection is one that forces each student out of their comfort zone to work areas of their voice not normally utilized in performance. Students will be required to learn from the printed sheet music that the teacher will provide & be required to perform with a live pianist.

 

Dates: Feb 21 and 22nd 2020

Performance Fee:   $50 Fee (Due with Feb. Tuition).
