Acts vie for spots at Bermuda Festival

Six acts will complete for the opportunity to take part in the 2018 Bermuda Festival of the Performing Arts.

The selected acts are the Bermuda School of Music Senior Ensemble, Brothers in Music and Sax duet, and solo vocalists Indigo Adamson, Shardae Lee and Skye Minors.

They will compete for the spots on January 13 after being selected from a dozen acts that auditioned earlier this month.

David Skinner, festival director, said: “It proved so difficult to narrow down the list to six competitors that we have decided to include performance slots for the runners-up elsewhere in the festival.”

Mr Skinner said the slots would likely come as pre-show performances at either City Hall or the Fairmont Southampton.

He added: “We might also be able to include singers in the choir supporting Jonathan Butler.”

David and Theresa Minors, of Playlist Management, have also invited all students who auditioned to appear at next year's AG Show.

The winner and runner-up selected on January 13 will be featured in an onstage performance with international singer and songwriter Shun Ng on January 30.

The performance will take place at the Earl Cameron Theatre. Mr Ng will also coach the two winners.
