2014 Teen Talent Contest
Greg and Barbara Phillips Music Scholarship

2014 Teen Talent Music ContestGreat news! Thanks to Mount Dora Music Festival's Board of Director fundraising efforts this past summer with United Arts of Central Florida host of power2give.org/centralflorida and the collaborative Campaign for the Arts, plus our annual Shut Up & Sing! KaraokeFest event held in conjunction with local participating churches, and the many generous contributions received from our grand donors, the festival raised $2500.

These funds will provide for five $500 Greg and Barbara Phillips Music Festival Scholarships to be given as prizes to the top five finalists during the Teen Music Talent Contest, 7:30 pm, Thursday, February 20th at the Mount Dora Community Center.

Fourteen Lake County high school teens applied for the scholarships and music auditions were held in October at MInda Music Store. Ten semi-finalists were selected from the impressive and talented group which consisted of pianists, guitarists, vocalists and a flutist.

Congratulations to everyone who applied and thank you for your efforts. We appreciate your participation and wish you all the very best with your musical education and endeavors. We look forward to seeing all of you at the contest, and watching the top ten semi-finalists showcase their talents. The students range from 10th to 12th graders and represent various Lake County high schools.
