2020 Hoosier Star Winners

2020 marked the 15th anniversary of Hoosier Star. We were thrilled to present five outstanding contestants in both the youth and adult divisions.

It was a program that was entertaining and full of surprises. Dreams are fulfilled as quality prevails in this exciting competition where all types of musical performances are possible.

The top winners received cash awards of $1,000 for the adult winner and $1000 for the youth winner.

We look forward to presenting the 16th Hoosier Star in 2021. Stay tuned for information regarding auditions that will be held in the Spring.

Hoosier Star is a unique and wonderful opportunity for vocalists of all ages to compete for the opportunity to showcase their talents with an orchestra—our own great La Porte County Symphony Orchestra. It culminates in a star-studded evening at the La Porte Civic Auditorium that has enthralled audiences for nearly 15 years. I think it gets better and more exciting every year. If you’ve attended in the past, be sure you don’t miss this year’s Hoosier Star on September 12. If you haven’t, make it a “must do event” this year. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed

“Hello to all our Hoosier Star Auditionees, As you know, we had to postpone our auditions that were regularly scheduled for March 20-21. In hindsight, we absolutely made the right decision. Our team is currently working on finding an alternative date sometime this summer to accommodate everyone. Thank you so much for making the choice to audition. As a singer myself, I know how much courage it takes to audition for anything! I truly think that singers are strong people. We have to be! We put our reputations on the line every time we step up to the microphone! I applaud all of you for taking the step to audition and we can’t wait to hear you! (hopefully, sooner than later!)”
