Auditions held for new Project Garage CD

Student musicians and bands will compete next Thursday (Jan. 27) at Heritage Woods secondary in Port Moody for a chance to be heard on this year's Project Garage CD.

Ten spots are open for young artists from Tri-City high schools to record their winning song for the Youth Matters! Society of B.C. annual project.

"Through out the process, there will be workshops held for these young talented musicians with professionals that will help them learn how to promote themselves and about the music industry and songwriting," project coorindator Robin Chae said.

The compilation CD will be available for sale, with proceeds going towards to the 2012 Project Garage program.

A CD release party and show will be held May 27 at Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam.

Chae said the top three musicians/bands from that event will win more recording time in a studio.

Auditions are 15 minutes and run from 5 to 9 p.m. in the music room at Heritage Woods secondary (1300 David Ave.) on Jan. 27.

To book a time, call Chae at 778-990-3290 or email youthmatters@live.com.
