Morgan Traud, a sixth-grader at J.E. Harrison Middle School, has advanced to a semifinal round of this year's Kean Quest Talent Search.
The search, a competition that continues through April 5, benefits the St. Barnabas Free Care Fund, which, in 2012 alone, provided nearly $4.5 million to poor and low-income residents at St. Barnabas Nursing Home, Valencia Woods at St. Barnabas and The Arbors at St. Barnabas who otherwise would not be able to afford their care.
The amateur talent contest is open to singers of all ages in two categories—ages 18 and younger and ages 19 and older. The top finalists from each of the competition's preliminary rounds advance to the semifinals.
The semifinals will be held on March 17, followed by the finals on April 5. Each round's show is held at the Kean Theatre at 5847 Meridian Rd., Gibsonia, PA 15044. Click here for tickets information or contact 724-443.0800, ext. 5310, or email@example.com. Tickets to the semifinals cost $10 each. They cost $14 each for the youth final.
The contest's champions will earn a recording session in a Grammy Award-winning studio.
