The Fair Media Council is looking for the best singer or singers on Long
Island. Auditions will be held on Saturday, March 3, at 1 p.m. at Briarcliffe College in Bethpage, N.Y. Those wishing to audition must first register before Feb. 24, by emailing Sean Caffrey-Agoglia at [email protected] with name (s), telephone number, and whether it
will be a solo or ensemble auditioning. Contestants must sing the national
anthem a capella and may perform solo or as a group. No musical
accompaniment is allowed. All ages from Long Island are welcome to try out.
The Fair Media Council is offering this exclusive opportunity for the winner
to perform at the 2012 Folio Awards on Friday, April 20, at 11 a.m. at the
Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, N.Y.
The largest media event on Long Island, FMC’s Folio Awards attracts about
600 community and business leaders, as well as the media from the tri-state
area. Robbie Rosen from ‘American Idol’ sang the national anthem at last
year’s awards ceremony. His performance was so inspiring that FMC wants to provide an opportunity to showcase the best of Long Island. The event is
taped for broadcast by WVVH-TV, Hamptons Television and aired throughout the New York metropolitan area.
The Fair Media Council is a nonprofit organization that educates businesses
and nonprofits to become media savvy. FMC also advocates for quality local
news coverage and has about 200 New York metro-area businesses and nonprofits as members.
