There’s still time to ‘Dare to Shine’ for young singers – Comox Valley Record

There’s still time to enter a singing contest with local connections.

Presented by Sincerely Susie and the Evergreen Cultural Centre, the Dare to Shine Singing Competition is produced by Comox Valley resident Susie McGregor and Elizabeth McGregor-Lorimer (a Miss Teen Comox Valley).

“I’m on the final push for contestants to sign up for Dare To Shine,” McGregor said. “I have two competitors from the Comox Valley, but I was hoping to see more.”

McGregor has two hometowns. Born and raised in Port Coquitlam, after many years on the road with no fixed address, she landed in the Comox Valley. After having and raising her two children in Comox, she and her children (now young adults) moved to Coquitlam.

Long & McQuade has come on board and is giving away a $20 rental certificate to everyone who signs up, and five $50 certificates in prizes. In addition to three different scholarships from the Nimbus School of Recording & Media for their artist development program, there are professional recordings for five winners, and three will have their own paid show at the Evergreen Theater on September 24, and one will get an opening slot. for McGregor’s show at the Evergreen on February 11.

Additionally, some will win performance videos, a web hosting package from Pod Creative, and private management and mentoring sessions as prizes. There are free optional workshops for all candidates who make it to the semi-finals and finals.

Amelia Mann of the Comox Valley is part of the Dare To Shine team. Mann was at Valley Idol, also VIMBC (The Vancouver Island Music Business Conference) and The Great Canadian Song Race (all held in the Comox Valley 2007-2014) and continued his musical career by attending Nimbus.

“Amelia has had the opportunity to work with many incredible mentors, producers and artists, and is thrilled to be part of the team nurturing the next talent to be discovered,” McGregor said.

Registration closes March 25 at www.susiemcgregor.com
