It’s that time of year again. You close your eyes, take a deep breath and open them to a vast sea of black. The spotlight hits you, and now you see hundreds of people staring back. Its the moment you’ve been waiting for. You step forward… CSA is coming back again this year with our flagship event Western Voice – the largest singing competition at Western! Being a part of this amazing experience means dedication, hard work, and ultimately irreplaceable memories. You’ll get to perform with some of the most talented students across campus and gain firsthand experience in performing in Western’s own Mustang Lounge. All it takes is one audition, and you’ll be on your road to stardom!
Here are the top 5 reasons why you should audition for Western Voice:
1. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
Are you a first year student? Second year? Third year? It’s never too late to step out of that comfy bubble of yours and try something new! Western Voice will allow you to open up your options and explore that hidden talent only the four walls of your room has had the honour of hearing. Who knows, maybe after this performance you’d be comfortable enough to let your living room walls listen as well!
2. Stage Experience
If you’ve ever sang in front of your parents or friends, it does not compare to singing on a stage. The rushing feeling of excitement and anxiety mixed up in the bottom of your stomach disappears all at once – the second you open your mouth with the audience bursting with applause. This opportunity is a once-in-a-university-lifetime experience that you absolutely can NOT miss!
3. Show Off Your Talent
Okay so you’ve performed before – once, twice, maybe even several times! What’s holding you back from performing at Western Voice? Hundreds of people will be waiting to hear you perform, so why wait? Contact us to sign up to audition today!
4. Meet New People
Never met anyone who shared your love for music before? By auditioning for Western Voice, we guaranteed you a 110% friendship refund! Not only will you meet our dedicated hard working executives and directors when you sign up, you’ll be exposed to many students just like yourself. Students who are trying to balance school and their musical talents. Students who’ve just recently starting getting into music, or students who’ve sang or played the piano/guitar/drums for their whole life. Every year we receive amazing applicants and this year, one might just turn out to be your new best friend!
5. It’s Fun!
Weeks filled with practice, for the one thing you love the most.
A night filled with laughter, and a nervousness you can’t control.
Then a moment catches your breath.
Western Voice. Auditions have been extended to Wednesday October 19 to accommodate for extraordinary demand. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to shine!
