KNY Audition Applications Due TOMORROW! Plus, KAFSC Gala Info

If you’ve been wondering what exactly it’ll take to win Kollaboration New York, check out this awesome clip of last year’s winner, singer-songwriter John Quiwa, doing his thing on our very own Kollaboration New York 2012 stage. Not only did John walk away with the $1,000 grand prize (not too shabby at all — think of all the bubble teas he can buy with that!), but the aspiring singer also got the chance to open up for Clara C and David Choi for their fall show right here in NYC.

Kollaboration New York is also all about giving back. As a member of the Kollaboration family, you’ll get the chance to perform at amazing community events and open mics, including the Korean American Family Service Center Gala (KAFSC), which is set to take place this coming Friday, May 3. (KAFSC is a community organization that promotes healthy and respectful relationships within families and among peers of all ages by offering a 24-hour hotline, crisis intervention, counseling, and support services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.)


KAFSC is a huge advocate of the performing arts and — lo and behold — so are we! The organization’s annual gala will be bringing awareness to the importance of performers like yourselves with a cocktail reception, silent auction, and performances by several Kollaboration New York alumni.

Part of being a member of the Kollaboration family is helping to mutually build up the community by (you guessed it!) empowerment through entertainment. And, just as importantly, becoming a part of a Kollaboration family means finding a community that truly takes care of its own and will serve as both a sounding board and a support system as you figure out how to maneuver into the mainstream. And all that, really, starts by clicking here. So simple, right?

Sounds like something you want to get involved in? Then click over to our application page here and get crackin’. Time’s a-ticking!

All applications are due no later than TOMORROW NIGHT, Tuesday, April 30 at 11:59 p.m. — so get a move on! Til next time, keep a close eye on our site, on Facebook and on Twitter in the coming weeks as we keep you posted on the latest audition news. Cheers to a fantastic season, and good luck, one and all!
