Auditions End Wednesday for Vienna Idol Contest

Vienna’s version of “American Idol” is winding down auditions ahead of the semi-finals during ViVa! Vienna!

Vienna Idol showcases local talent, while also raising money for the Khristin Kyllo Memorial Fund, which honors the memory of a local Vienna resident who died suddenly due to a sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP).

The last audition slots for the eighth annual music competition will be held on Wednesday.

Here’s where hopeful contestants can audition:

  • Today (May 14): 7-9 p.m. at Whole Foods (143 Maple Avenue E.)
  • Tomorrow (May 15): 7-9 p.m. at Caffe Amouri Coffee Roaster (107 Church Street NE)

Up next, the semi-finals will take place in the parking lot of Caffe Amouri during ViVa! Vienna! next Sunday, May 26.

The winner gets chosen by attendees, who vote for their favorite “Idol” during a concert on the Vienna Town Green (144 Maple Avenue E.) on Friday, June 7.

The first place winner will receive $700 and eight hours of professional recording studio time. The contestant in second place will walk away with $500, while the contestant in third place will get $250.
