About Hoosier Star
2015 marks the 10th anniversary of Hoosier Star. Breaking with tradition, this year we invited back the adult winners from the previous competitions. We are thrilled to present six outstanding winners this year in a program that will feature solos, duets and group numbers featuring past adult and youth finalists. On Saturday, September 12, 2015, 6 singers will perform 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 12 performance votes to determine the winners. The top winner will receive cash awards of $2,000.
