Sign-ups for Lamorinda Idol 2014 auditions are going on now through April 30. 

Students living in or attending school Lamorinda, from kindergarten through grade 12,  are invited to audition for a chance to be a Lamorinda Idol finalist.

Entries may be made by individual soloists or by groups. Young people from other communities can participate in the group categories, providing that at least one in the group is from Lamorinda. 

Auditions run May 15 through May 17.

Lamorinda Idol, created and sponsored by the Orinda Arts Council, offers a multi-month collection of auditions, performance workshops, community performances and a final competition.

The finalists will perform at the Sept. 7 Idol Finals at the Orinda Theatre.

Participants learn to choose music that highlights their talent, present themselves creatively, connect with an audience, take constructive criticism, and win or lose graciously, organizers said.

Following the auditions, finalists and runners-up will have the opportunity to attend or participate in performance workshops, a summer pool and karaoke party, and performances in the Orinda Community Park, in Lafayette, at Orinda Theatre Square, and possibly other venues.

Winners will also be invited to perform at the Orinda Car Show, the Lafayette Art and Wine Festival, and the Orinda Arts Council's Holiday Luncheon.

Visit Orinda Arts Council’s website at http://orindaarts.org/lamorinda-idol/audition-information to sign up.

Lamorinda Idol was previously named Orinda Idol, and 2014 will be the ninth year of this successful activity. The name was changed in 2013 to reflect the activity's full involvement of young people from Orinda, Moraga and Lafayette, according to the arts council.
