City College’s World Music Club has hosted an annual singing contest on campus for fifteen years. This year, the contest was open to the City College community as well as members of the public.
Club president Brian Le and advisor Benedict Lim were on hand to welcome contestants and prepare them for competition. More than twenty-five students and members of the community took to the stage in an attempt to qualify for just 10 spots in the final show.
Some singers performed a cappella, others played guitar and sang and a few performed duets. All performances were judged on 3 criteria: presentation, technique and skill.
Ten finalists will take the stage at 6 p.m. on Dec. 4 at the Diego Rivera Theatre at Ocean campus. The event is complimentary to attend for both students and community members.
