CANTON, Mass., (CelebrityAccess) — The School of Rock announced it will launch a worldwide talent search called Center Stage through a partnership with Atlantic Records and Artist Partner Group (APG).
Beginning this month, singers can submit a five-minute audition video in hopes of being one of approximately 25 selected individuals flown out to Los Angeles to perform in front of a panel of industry execs in a private artist showcase and record at APG’s studio with help from professional recording engineers.
While not every applicant will receive this showcase opportunity, 100 applicants that show promise as artists will receive a scholarship to a School of Rock camp of their choice.
The program is open to all vocalists aged 13-19 years old living in a country where School of Rock operates, including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Peru, South Africa, Australia, and the Philippines.
Vocalists do not need to be School of Rock students in order to participate, but the school’s staff will provide personalized feedback on submissions for enrolled students, the School of Rock said.
“School of Rock is one of the largest communities of creators in the world,” says Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “We pride ourselves on taking students out of a practice room and putting them on to the stage. With Center Stage, we’re giving these talented artists the potential to reach their biggest audience yet. It’s an honor to be a central part of that journey.”
