This provides free programs and competitions for Yonkers residents interested in the performing arts, and has challenging competitions in all areas of talent.
The program is supplemented by sponsors to keep it free. The Untermyer Performing Arts Council awards the winners with cash prizes from the Theresa Fund. Sound Associates Inc. & Altman Rentals provide professional sound and lighting for the finale competition and show. Finalists are transported to the finale show by Top Class Limo Inc.
The Yonkers Idol Search Program gives youth experience in auditioning. Pre-teens and Teens can have the greatest vocal talent in the world; however, if they can’t showcase themselves in a professional manner or get over stage fright they may never have that opportunity to take it to the next level.
Holding the title for a year, Yonkers Idol & Junior Idol opens the door for many performance opportunities for various City of Yonkers ceremonies and events. It’s important for them to know that dreams become reality once choice at a time.
