Newton's Classical Idol

The competition will not be held in the 2008-2009 Season.

The Newton's Classical Idol finalists in three categories, elementary, middle school, and high school, will compete for the Henry and Gertrude Lasker prize. A panel of local celebrity judges will give comments after the performances and select a winner in each age category. Local students are particularly encouraged to support their favorite competitor.

Following the competition, the public is invited to meet the contestants and the judges over light refreshments in the Rashi School Cafeteria, where there will also be an instrument petting zoo and the opportunity to meet music teachers to discuss music lessons and music education.

Tickets for general seating are $7.00 for children under 18, $14 for adults, with a family cap of $25, and will be available online or by calling 617-965-2555.
