Virtual Star Search 2020

VIRTUAL STAR SEARCH 2020

In the absence of so many events right now, including the Salvationist Star Search Display, the USA Eastern Territory Music Department is proud to announce our very own Virtual Star Search.  This Virtual Star Search gives an opportunity for musicians and artists to compete in Star Search 2020 by submitting videos of the test items in their various categories.  We will be accepting participants in the solo brass, vocal, piano, snare drum, acoustic guitar, monologue and dance categories from May 1 until June 15. Winners in all categories will receive prizes and awards will be announced at our virtual awards ceremony!
