“Pine City Sings” will return for a second year as part of the Freedom Fest event line-up. The event will feature up to 20 talented singers in the Pine City area. The event will be hosted by WCMP Radio with registration through the Pine City Chamber as part of the Freedom Fest schedule on Saturday, June 30th at the Pine County Fairgrounds.
Registration is currently open for amateur vocalists age 15 – 25 that are Pine City residents or students currently enrolled at Pine City Public Schools. Vocalists may only register to participate in one community.
The local competition is part of the larger Minnesota Sings program that began in 2015. This marks the fourth year of the statewide competition. Cities around the state register as a participating city and host their own local competition. The winner and runner-up of the local event will advance to the Minnesota Sings competition being held in St. Paul on September 29 & 30.
“Pine City has a great music program in the schools, and three arts organizations focused on promoting our community as an arts destination,” says Becky Schueller, Executive Director for the Pine City Chamber. “It just made sense to add this opportunity to the event line-up for Freedom Fest. With the staff at WCMP Radio partnering with us, we hope to have a great turnout for contestants as well as spectators.”
