The students from Southridge will be attending the alternate Semi-Final on March 9th in Connell; it will count as your Quarter Final. For those selected to move on, you will be required to attend the Semi-Final in Okanogan on March 16th.

**NOTE: Contestants are able to change their quarter final location, ONLY if the need arises, due to any personal or school conflicts. You CANNOT change the location on your own - you MUST contact Ed Lisenbey (509-322-0003) or Leslie Todd (509-322-5368) ASAP if you need to switch locations (Wenatchee to Fox Island or Fox Island to Wenatchee).

SUGGESTION: You should choose a song that is well within your vocal range. If you have a softer, gentler voice DO NOT SING a powerful song by a powerhouse singer like Beyonce', Whitney Houston, Celine Dion or Carrie Underwood - be sure you can hit the high & low notes cleary without straining or bottoming out. The judging becomes more strict as you move on through the competition! Bring your "A" game to each round!! As you're singing, you are presenting yourself to the audience - show them that you enjoy being on stage & that you're happy to be performing for them!

TAKE NOTE: Some songs can be sung by male or female - you would just switch some words around to make it appropriate for the gender the song is sung about. Example - her to him, girl to boy, Sue to Drew.  PERFORM YOUR SONG IN THE STYLE OF THE ORIGINAL ARTIST, NOT YOUR REARRANGED VERSION. Don't change it up too much to make it your own. We want your voice, of course.  



1. Be at your Quarter Final venue forty-five (45) minutes before show time 

 to check in & to give us your CD.  Plan to stay for the whole evening - see rule #6. Any information about the show or any questions will be answered.  (At the final we will be doing sound checks.)

2. Please remember to have a Karaoke CD when arriving to the quarter final & semi final. I-Pods or singing acapella is allowed! If you download Karaoke music, it has to be on a CD-R - no other CD will work in our system - make sure it finalizes. Label it with your name & track # (even if there's only ONE song, please; also label the dead time (how many seconds before music starts) CUT  THE DEADTIME to 0-3 SECONDS - NO MORE.  EX: Your Name; Track #1, :03.


3. For the quarter final, choose any song of any genre  EXCEPT Rap, Hip Hop, Raggae or Opera.  (It doesn't have to be from our approved list, but you may  use it if you're having trouble selecting a song.) Remember to text Ed (509)322-0003 with your song choice ASAP, (not before 8 AM). You risk the chance of NOT getting your song if you wait. 

  • Both East & West quarter finalists may start texting your song choice to Ed starting 8AM on Monday, Feb. 18th. For the west qtr., the deadline to text your song is Wednesday, Feb.20th. The deadline for the east qtr. is Wednesday, Feb.27th. (It would be wise to have a back up song if the song you want to sing happens to be chosen by someone else.)
  • If you pick a 50s, 60, or 70s song from our approved lists to sing at the  quarter final, you may sing it again at the semi-final or final, but not at both.

4. Dress nicely for your performance - Nice (tasteful) outfit that fits the style of your song. 

5. Be thinking about possible song choices for the Semi & Final rounds. These songs must come from our approved song list - look under the "More" tab. Semi's is 50s & 60s Rock, Pop & Doo Wop. At the Championship Final you'll have to sing two songs: one from our classic country list &  one from our Rock, Pop & Doo Wop list. (You are not allowed to sing the same song for the final that you sang at the semi-final, so choose your songs wisely.) 

**NOTE**  If you need help with your song selections, don't hesitate to call Ed Lisenbey for suggestions. He is a great source!

6. WE REQUIRE ALL CONTESTANTS TO SIT TOGETHER DURING THE WHOLE EVENING'S PERFORMANCES. This allows you to support each other & to bond throughout the competition. Once your performance is over, you need to return to your designated seating area. The ones that sing at the end of the program watched you - you need to stay and watch them.  If you have any questions, speak with Ed or Leslie when you arrive. **Not being respectful or not listening to directions by ANY competition volunteer - may cause you to risk not  moving on in the competition.

7. Like always...HAVE FUN!! GOOD LUCK!!
