SaskTel Search for the Stars

SaskTel Search for the Stars is a vocal/instrumental talent contest which gives local youth the opportunity to showcase their talents as well as grow their skills as an artist. Auditions are held September 16th with our judges, announcement to come later this summer! If selected to continue past auditions, contestants get the opportunity to work with our judges and Singer/Songwriter Sponsor, Tri Sonic Sound at the Search for the Stars Workshop. But that’s not all, practice makes perfect so contestants have two chances to work with our amazing house band lead by Mike Langlois before hitting the stage for the big night!

This year we are very excited to be partnering with Tri Sonic Sound in our Singer/Songwriter Category. How does this work, well if our final contestant meets a predetermined score by our judges, they will get the chance to record a 3 song demo in studio with Tri Sonic post show!

 PLEASE READ RULES FOUND BELOW TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO AUDITION!
