Show Details

The Rose City Sing-Off is the premier A cappella competition for high school-age singers in the Northwest. The Rose City Sing-Off not only provides an exciting opportunity for youth to compete, but also a chance to perform for three professional judges. As part of the experience, each group will get to work one-on-one with the judges before the competition begins, each of whom have professional backgrounds in music, singing and education.

Partnering with the Portland Rose Festival, this competition is hosted in Portland, Oregon, but draws from the entire Northwest region. It is a one-day competition format, which took place on Saturday, April 8, at Imago Dei Community (1302 SE Ankeny St). Nine qualifying groups were admitted, and all groups performed in a single round of competition. Cash prizes were awarded to the top three singing groups: Champion ($750), first runner-up ($500) and second runner-up ($250). Songs, choreography and dress are family appropriate, with songs that have a positive message.
