Cherry Blossom Festival Seeks Local Talent for Parade

The National Cherry Blossom Festival is accepting submissions for its fifth annual “Sing into Spring” competition, which solicits local singers for the festival’s April parade.

Winning soloists or vocal groups will be showcased to more than 150,000 parade attendees and a nationally syndicated TV audience in the largest spectator event of the festival.

The competition is open to all D.C., Maryland and Virginia residents 15 and older (those under 18 require parental consent). Submissions will be accepted online only, and only vocalists are eligible; instrumental performances will not be accepted.

Interested vocalists can submit a 30-second YouTube video for consideration through Monday, Nov. 20.

A selection committee will choose up to 20 finalists to perform in a live audition on Jan. 31, 2018, at Arena Stage. Afterward, a panel of judges will select winners to perform live in the parade.
