About Hoosier Star
2016 marks the 11th anniversary of Hoosier Star. We are thrilled to present up to six outstanding contestants in both the youth and adult divisions. This year will feature the opportunity for singers to present duets. The event will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2016, at the La Porte Civic Auditorium, 1001 Ridge Street, La Porte, Indiana.
The shine of Hoosier STAR sparkles as contestants warm up their voices in competition.
The Hoosier STAR Orchestra will accompany the selected finalists. This group is a quality group of musicians that are assembled by Maestro Philip Bauman, the innovative music director and conductor of the La Porte County Symphony Orchestra. It promises to be a program that is entertaining and full of surprises. Dreams are fulfilled as quality prevails in this exciting competition where all types of musical performances are possible.
The titled winners of the September competition win prize money, but it doesn’t come easy, as an interesting twist to this competition is that the audience in attendance at the September 10 performance votes to determine the winners. The top winner will receive cash awards of $1,000 for the adult winner and $500 for the youth winner.
