Pillars of Light and Love


Two Shows will be held at the beautiful Shannondell Theater

10000 Shannondell Rd. Audubon, PA

Sundays: February 10th & 24th

Pillars of Light and Love is excited to present our second Julia's Joy Voice Idol Competition Fundraiser. Twenty Contestants will compete in our live shows being held at the beautiful Shannondell Performing Arts Theater. Our first show will be Sunday, February 10th at 2pm where the top 20 will perform. We will announce the top 10 who will compete at the final show on February 24th. At intermission we will announce the top 5 who will then perform 2 additional songs. And the winner will be announced at the end of the Show on February 24th.  

Our goal for all of our Julia's Joy Programs is to empower youth. In this project, our mission is to strengthen confidence, and improve performance skill, in talented youth interested in performing publicly. To improve and strengthen skills, the top 20 Contestants will receive free group vocal and performance coaching from our returning coaches, Carter Ross, a Vocal Teacher, Performer and Julia's Joy Teen Talk Coach, and Vocalist Francesca Venezia, and well as other coaches to be announced. 

Dates for the group coaching for the top 20 Contestants will be held in December and January. Attendance at a minimum of 3 coaching sessions is required which will be held on weekends and a few evenings.
