Vanderbilt Star competition rescheduled for March 22

Vanderbilt Star is back! The second annual amateur songwriter competition, a benefit for Next Steps at Vanderbilt, has been rescheduled for March 22 at 7 p.m. in Ingram Hall.

This year, Belmont University students are competing in addition to Vanderbilt students. Ten contestants will perform original music in front of a panel of judges and a live audience for a chance to win a one-song recording deal with Lamon Records. The judges will select the top three finalists, and the audience will decide the winner.

Tickets on event day will be $15 for students with IDs, and $20 for the general public. Get $5 off per ticket by purchasing in advance online. Students wishing to use their Commodore Card may purchase tickets at Sarratt Student Center.

2014 Vanderbilt Star winner Sarah Jennings.

All proceeds go to Next Steps at Vanderbilt, a two-year postsecondary certification program for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Ingram Hall is located at the Blair School of Music, 2400 Blakemore Ave.
