 Orinda, CA — Lamorinda Arts Council (LAC) will produce the 12th annual Lamorinda Idol singing competition at the Orinda Theatre on Sunday, August 27th from 11 am to 7:30 pm.

Lamorinda Idol finalists in soloist and group categories will compete at this free event throughout the day, culminating in the Lamorinda Idol 2017 winners being crowned in the elementary, middle and high school categories at 7 pm.

“Lamorinda Idol is magical to me,” shared Lamorinda Idol founder, Steven Hardwood. “I love seeing young people who are passionate about singing receive the unwavering support of their parents as well as our Idol judges, volunteers, sponsors, and audience members as they strive to nurture their artistic talents.”

Audience members are an important part of the voting and will have the chance to cast votes for their favorite Lamorinda finalists on August 27th. Audience votes, combined with feedback from a local panel of musically experienced judges, will determine who will be crowned 2017 Lamorinda Idols.
