The Redfest Vocal Contest hosted by the Redlands Sporting Club is celebrating its fifteenth year and as with every other year, the incredible talent in the Redlands will be showcased during the competition and be a highlight for all spectators.
Doreen Thomas, Marketing Manager at the Redlands Sporting Club, stated that the level of enthusiasm of both new and returning contestants each year is a testament to the Club’s commitment to promote the youth of the Redlands and support the emerging talent within the Redlands community. Past winners such as Mirusia, Jal Joshua, Connor Crawford, the Jackson sisters, Liz Muller are just a few names that Redlanders may remember who have gone on to carve an on-going professional musical career for themselves.
