Talent competition at Hope Secondary School

Acts will perform in front of the judges April 2-5 in the school commons room

The annual Battle of the Acts at Hope Secondary School gets underway next week.

The competition is open to any type of musical performance, however, the talent tends to be mostly solo artists and bands.

The acts that make it through auditions this week will perform in front of the judges April 2-5 in the commons room at lunch. The finals take place during a special assembly in the school gym on April 8.

“It’s a chance for students to showcase their talents,” said event organizer Lenora Poulin.

“All of our students are extremely supportive of the performers and the courage it takes to sing in front of your peers. It is a big event for us.”

Students in the leadership class have been working on numerous committees – such as facilities, judges, contestants, MCs, decorations, and sound – to organize the event.

The MCs this year are Betsie Kapola-Hoshowski and Isaiah Robinson.

The judges are band teacher Bob Tarr, counselor and former vocal jazz performer Erin Wilkins, and a daily guest judge.

Each day the judges will pick one act to move on to the finals and on the last day they have the option of adding wild cards. Gift cards will be awarded to the top 3 acts – $100 for the winner.
