About NOVA Idol


NOVA Idol has come a long way in 14 years! It began as a talent show in a tiny classroom on the Alexandria Campus, progressed to a crowded cafeteria, and is currently held on multiple NOVA campuses, over several months and is a multi-faceted powerhouse event. This year we are adding a variety show competition on the side!

Although a lot has changed through the years, one thing remains the same, NOVA Idol is 100 percent student-focused. Our top priority is to enrich students by giving them opportunities to develop their talents, and recognize their excellence at the campus and community levels.

All NOVA students are welcome to participate. Competitors will have an opportunity to practice their performance skills, get objective and supportive feedback from professional educators and musicians, and share their talents with classmates and neighbors.

A few outstanding individuals will move on in the competition and have a chance to work with a professional vocal coach to develop confidence, advance their skills and stage presence, compete for generous cash prizes and recording studio time, and represent the College and community as the next NOVA Idol.

NOVA Idol seeks to give all of our students a chance to push themselves and to achieve success. We also strive to bring the community together for a night of fun and music!

Whether you're a singer or you have an appreciation for great musical performances, you won't want to miss NOVA Idol's 14th Anniversary event. The best is yet to come!
