2024 Vocal Identification Program

Auditions are now open for the 2024 program.

Calling Aboriginal High School students who like to sing and want to perform.

VIP Auditions are on!

The Vocal Identification Program consists of high school aged students who are looking for an opportunity to perform with other aspiring artists.  Workshops are run throughout the year, led by VIP Directors Blake Ralph and Wendy Tierney, who will teach students a variety of skills surrounding music and performance. Through VIP’s empowering platform, Aboriginal youth in the Greater Sydney region can develop into talented and accomplished vocalists, growing in unique opportunities that uplift and inspire.

In 2024 the program consists of interactive workshops where students will:

  • Learn the basic skills of vocal technique
  • Build their confidence and self-esteem
  • Have the opportunity to participate in public performance
  • Learn the skills to plan for future goals in the performance industry
  • Perform in a professional space and learn microphone technique
  • Engage in cultural activities.

The workshops culminate in a showcase concert where students have the opportunity to show how far they have come during the program. Each student will have the opportunity to perform a solo song in front of family, friends and school representatives.

Date and Location

Auditions held on Thursday 13th May 2024 at Casula Powerhouse.

In past years the VIP Showcase has proven to be a great way to celebrate the success of the group and a great way to reward them for all their hard work throughout the year.
