If you're a teen between the ages of 13 and 19, play an instrument and/or sing, and are looking for an opportunity to share your gift of music with an audience... then, you will LOVE Teen Open Mic Nites at Ballantyne School of Music!
We will kick off these fun musical social events on Friday, October 26th, at 7pm at our South (Indian Land) location (please note the revised date). We will backline for our musicians (meaning that the stage will be set... PA... drums... amps... lights... the works!). Just come prepared to plug in and play! (All music must be performed live - no recorded tracks please.) If you are a local teen band, you are welcome to sign up as a full band.
Each musician will be assigned a 10- to 15-minute time slot (registration required ----> ) and will need to come prepared with their songs rehearsed and ready...just like they do at regular adult open mics. This is not a karaoke event, so all musicians will be playing live music. We are super excited to kick off our first night with Goldfingers food truck from 6-8pm. If you've never tried their food, you will LOVE it...especially their Red Velvet Funnelcake!
** Please perform songs with audience-friendly, clean lyrics. We will attempt to assign students to their preferred time range, as long as space is available. There is no fee to perform at our open mics. But, please, if you are assigned a time and need to cancel, send us an email to let us know so we can give that time to another performer.**
We can't wait to see all of our talented teens in the south Charlotte and Lancaster County area on stage at our next Teen Open Mic!
