He discovered Hayley Westenra, Yulia, Annabel Fay, Elizabeth Marvelly and Will Martin, and with more than 35 successful years in the music industry here and around the world, Gray Bartlett is keeping his eyes peeled for musical talent at the first LynnMall Shopping Centre Best Buskers Competition.
This month, LynnMall is inviting people of all ages and musical abilities to audition at the centre for a chance to win special busking licences to perform during the Christmas shopping period (16 to 24 December). On Saturday 27 November at 12pm, the centre will host an open audition in search of musical talent.
One lucky finalist will not only receive a busking licence, but will also be considered for inclusion on Gray Bartlett’s new CD, to be released next year.
Make-A-Wish New Zealand is the official charity of the Best Buskers Competition, and will be collecting gold coin donations at the open auditions to grant a special Christmas wish for a seriously ill Kiwi kid. “We are very excited to be part of the competition which will create magic for buskers and wish kids alike,” says Scott Simpson, CEO Make-A-Wish New Zealand.
To enter, buskers can register their interest at the Customer Services Kiosk before Saturday 27 November, or turn up on the day to register. All buskers need to be registered by 11am (one hour before the audition begins).
