City Seeks to Discover its Own
“Idol” Talent

In a quest to find undiscovered talent in and around our community, the City of Moreno Valley has scheduled auditions for solo vocal performers to be showcased at the City’s 4th of July Family Fun Fest celebration. 

The “Moreno Valley Idol” competition will consist of two rounds of auditions, with the best vocalists invited back to work with a music professional in preparation for the final showcase to be presented at Mountain View Middle School as part of the City’s annual Family Fun Fest celebration on July Fourth. 

The vocalist awarded the title of “Moreno Valley Idol” in each of five age categories will receive $500.  Second and third place winners will also receive prizes.
The first round of auditions will be held on April 11th from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and April 13th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Conference and Recreation Center located at 14075 Frederick Street.  For this initial audition, vocalists will perform a cappella.  Participants who advance to the second round of auditions will have the opportunity to sing along with musical accompaniment. 

Singers that make it through the second audition will have the opportunity to work with a music professional in preparation of the final performances which will be the main attraction of the Family Fun Fest. 

Contestants are not required to be residents of Moreno Valley and will compete in one of the following age categories:
