Oltre Oceano Festival USASinging CompetitionSixth Edition

April 7, 2018      7:00 pm

The Cultural Association “Oltreoceano” Live is proud to announce a second edition, “Oltreoceano” Festival, USA Inc. “Oltreoceano”Live is an organization that began in 2012 in Via SM27 #11-90,040 Palermo, Italy. This is a competition that is held live in Europe to give young Italians an opportunity and a voice to make their dreams come true by expressing themselves through performing Arts and we are now reaching out to the United States to give our young American Italians the same opportunity.  The competition has artistic and cultural character, and pursues to identify the interest, skills, and artistic heritage of that of young Italian American people.

This chapter organization is launching its first live national competition for young American Italian people between the ages of 13-28 years. The competition will take place on April 7th, 2018 at 1000 Hempstead Ave., Rockville Center 11571- Madison Theatre (Molloy College). We are looking for sponsorship and aide from organizations for some of the more underprivileged children that may not be afforded the financial opportunity to compete. Financial support will also aide in the cost of costumes, transportation, airfares, and travel cost. Auditions will be held after applications are reviewed for eligibility through the Organization. The Judges chosen and assigned are composed of teachers and artists that are culturally competent in performing arts.

The 1st place winner will be granted an all-inclusive trip to Palermo, Italy to perform as a guest in the “Oltreoceano” Festival! The 2nd place winner will receive a trophy, and the 3rd place winner will receive a trophy and the honor of being in the top three! This competition will inspire the hearts of many young American Italian people to follow their dreams with your organization’s support.
