Teen Songwriting Competition
ABOUT THE COMPETITION
Overture with the Arts is pleased to launch our 2nd Annual Teen Songwriting Competition. The competition is open to youth aged 13 to 18 who write their own original music. The Top 10 finalists of our 2nd Annual Teen Songwriting Competition will feature the best young talented singer-songwriters, aged 13 to 18, from Montreal, singing and performing their original acoustic music.
The live showcase will be held on Saturday November 28, 2020, from 2:00pm – 4:30pm, at Basebin Studios (4275 Rue Frontenac, Montréal, QC H2H 2M4). Finalists will sing in front of a live audience and the performances will also be live streamed. A panel of judges comprised of music industry professionals will give constructive feedback on performances and songwriting.
OWTA’s Teen Songwriting Competition will be lead by singer/ songwriter, pianist and jazz musician, Melina Soochan and is a revival of Soochan’s Acoustic Nights Montreal Songwriting Competition.
Three prizes will awarded on November 28 and the winner and runners up will be selected by jury of musicians and music industry professionals.
