Attention all entertainers, singers, musicians, dancers, choral groups!

Do you have what it takes to share the stage with two of Indy’s own singing superstars? 

If so, auditions begin this weekend for the 52nd annual Circle of Lights celebration. 

The annual holiday event, presented by the Contractors of Quality Connection and Electrical Workers of IBEW #481, takes place on Monument Circle in Downtown Indianapolis on Friday, Nov. 28. 

Acts selected for the Circle of Lights®will perform on the same stage as the 2014 winner of The Voice.  Indy’s own Josh Kaufman is one of the confirmed headliners for this extraordinary holiday celebration. Kaufman will share the stage with another talented Indy headliner – renowned opera star Angela Brown who will also serve as one of the hosts for the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s IPL Yuletide Celebration.


Auditions will be recorded and made into an RTV-6 Circle of Lights® audition special, The Circle of Lights® Talent Search, a show that will take viewers behind the scenes as hundreds of Hoosier singers, dancers and entertainers vie for a spot in the beloved Circle of Lights show.  


 First round auditions will take place as follows:

· Saturday, Oct. 4 from 9 a.m. – noon | Electrical Training Institute, 1751 S. Lawndale Ave.

· Tuesday, Oct. 7 from 4 – 8 p.m. | IBEW 481, 1828 N. Meridian St.

A final, invitation-only audition will take place for selected finalists Oct. 20. Acts are encouraged to have a second number prepared should they be invited to call-backs. Singers are strongly advised NOT to perform a cappella!

There is no need to pre-register for auditions.  Performers will audition in the order in which they arrive. Performers should choose either Oct. 4 or 7 and allow several hours for the audition process.
