The orchestra ran an online contest in the winter to find talented local singers, who submitted a video of themselves singing a rock or pop song for online voting. Following submission, fans voted to select the top 10 finalists, who were narrowed down to five soloists selected by the Mansfield Symphony artistic staff to perform at the concert.
The five selected soloists for the performance are Thomas Clark, Karen Clifton, Madi and Ana Heichel, Ellie Nickoli, and Isabelle Thoman.
The program, scheduled for 8 p.m. March 24 at the Renaissance Theatre, will include current pop and rock hits from film and well-known artists such as Radio Head, Queen, and more, in addition to popular classical selections.
