Indian Fusion Music Festival Semi-Finals Info

Students of Notes n' Beats are now in the Semi-Final round of our very 1st annual Indian Fusion Music Festival!  Each competition is grouped by age (ages 7 and under, 8-12 and 13 and above).  For each performance, a panel of judges will evaluate each student and select a few students to advance to the final round on June 26th. 

 

Week of May 22nd - Semi-Finals of the Indian Fusion Music Festival

Students who make it to this round will perform in In-Person at our Ashburn studio or in Real-time on Zoom. A panel of judges will select students to advance to the final round of the competition. There will also be a PUBLIC POLL and we will announce the audience favorite for each discipline.  Students can refer their families to this page for the poll.

Refer to the F.A.Q.  Students who choose to perform online will login to a Zoom session (see FAQ for the correct link to login to).  Student families from across the world can watch the show on LIVESTREAM on YouTube.  The links will be available on this page at the top on the 21st.

June 26th 9A-1P: Finalists 

In the final round, students will compete with other students from their age category but from different disciplines (voice and instruments) as well.  We will perform at an outdoor amphitheater in Vienna. A winner and runner-up will be selected from each age group and will win cash prizes.  

Our goal is to make this experience similar to America's Got Talent, and encourage all students to give their best. We will have high-profile artists (like winners of reality shows) and industry experts on our judges panel for the final round! You will have an opportunity to receive feedback from industry experts!

Details for the festival are included below. We are excited to provide another opportunity for our students to express themselves in creative, exciting ways!
