On Sunday, January 20, finalists were chosen from about 45 contestants to be a part of a live public competition, sponsored by the Hanover Arts and Activities Center. These finalists were chosen by a panel of judges who spent an entertaining afternoon listening to the singers and then deciding which singers will go on to the finals.
The finalists will compete in an entertaining program that will take place at the Hanover Arts & Activities Center on Sunday, March 4. The Hanover Junior Idols’ Program will be held at 3:30pm and the Hanover Idols (Adult) competition will be held at 7:00pm. 2016 Hanover Idol, RaeLyn McMillion and 2016 Hanover Junior Idol, Anisah Abdullah will perform at the 2018 Competition.
$10 tickets will be available at the Hanover Arts & Activities Center by February 4. You may purchase tickets online at www.hanoverarts.org, in person at the Center, or by calling 804.798.2728. Cash, check or credit cards. A group rate incentive will also be offered (purchase 10 tickets, and get the 11th for free). Doors open 1/2 hour before show time and any available tickets will be sold then.
