2017 NOVA Idol welcomes all talents in its 14th year

2016 NOVA Idol Winner
Carolina Fuenzalida

NOVA Idol 2017 returns with strong vocalists from all six campuses of Northern Virginia Community College.  NOVA Idol 2017 will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, March 31 at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center at the Alexandria Campus, 4915 East Campus Dr., Alexandria, VA 22311.

This year’s event has a little twist with the organizers allowing different acts to audition for the event. Throughout the fall 2016 semester, judges arranged auditions for NOVA students in an effort to find contestants with multiple talents including singing, dancing, storytelling, drama, gymnastics, juggling and other skills. This year’s show will include 10 finalists for the singing portion of the show and two finalists for the variety show.

NOVA Idol started as a small talent show in a classroom on NOVA’s Alexandria Campus and has grown into a popular event over the past 14 years. Although a lot has changed over the years, the program is still student-focused and is aimed to give students the opportunity to develop their talents and recognize their excellence at the campus and community levels. NOVA Idol participants will have the opportunity to practice their performance skills, get objective and supportive feedback from professional educators and musicians and share their talents with classmates and neighbors.

The winners of the 2017 NOVA Idol will receive cash prizes between $1,000 and $4,000. The community is invited to join NOVA as they decide which talented individuals will be worthy of the grand prizes. NOVA Idol is free and open to the public and parking is available in the Beauregard Street Parking Garage. For more information about NOVA Idol, email Dr. Brenda Lewis-Holmes at novaidol@nvcc.edu
