  Big Bear Idol Music Competition


  2015 Vocal Winner  Spencer Cassling               2015 Violin Winner   Catie Donoho   


The 2016 Big Bear Idol Music Competition, annually sponsored by the Rotary Club of Big Bear Lake, is structured for serious musicians of high school age.   The event is held at the Big Bear Lake Performing Arts Center, Saturday February 20, at 6:00 P.M.  The special competition event is open to the public and there is no cost for admission

The Idol provides students an opportunity to perform on stage before a live audience. The students will be evaluated, as well as they each will receive constructive comments from qualified music educators who share nuggets of wisdom to encourage the performers.

The Big Bear Idol Music Competition categories of competition are: Instrumental, Piano, Classical Vocal, and Non-Classical Vocal.  The top three places in each category earn cash prizes.

First place winners are offered the opportunity to compete at the district level, against winners from other Rotary clubs from the Riverside and San Bernardino County areas.
