Are you between the ages of 12 and 17 and a resident of Aurora? Then you could be Aurora’s next Teen Idol. This annual competition is a great opportunity for budding artists.

For the audition round, each participant will prepare one song which they will perform in front of three judges. They can choose any song of their choice. The auditions will be taking placein June of each year. When you register to participate, more details, including the audition location will be sent to you.

The judges will be choosing eight semi-finalists which will perform one more time on Canada Day in Lambert Willson Park. Not only will these eight semi-finalists get to perform on the Canada Day stage, but each semi-finalist will also be invited to perform the national anthem at the beginning of one of the Concerts in the Park during the summer.
