Ten Richmond high school singers are preparing for what could be the biggest show of their lives so far.

They’ll be competing in the 11th annual RichCity Idol event at Gateway Theatre on Thursday, May 29.

Based on popular TV talent shows, RichCity Idol will feature one top singer from each public high school in the district—each selected through their school’s own singing competition.

Hosting this year’s show is Dalvir Nanara, a Grade 12 student at H.J. Cambie Secondary, and Hannah Balba, a Grade 11 Richmond High student and former Idol contestant.

The show begins at 7 p.m. General admission tickets are $12 in advance, available at the Gateway (gatewaytheatre.com and 604-270-1812) or $15 at the door.
