It may have been on a Zoom Webinar rather than the Orinda Theatre’s stage, but the winners of the Lamorinda Idol Winter Edition shined just as bright when they were announced on March 14.
Forty-one soloists and 14 groups, ranging in age from kindergarten through high school, made it into the finals via performance videos. A panel of performing arts professionals then voted on the four soloist and three group winners with the general public voting for the audience award winner.
Lamorinda Art Council organizers designed a festive on-line awards ceremony complete with excerpts from the winning performances and comments from the elated winners. By the time the evening ended, four solo performers, three groups, and one Audience Award Winner had been named as follows:
K-2nd – Jessica Yu
3rd-5th – Anna Tanner
6th-8th – Isabelle Porcella
9th-12th – Sabrina Hernandez
K-5th – Power of Two (Cara Impallomeni, Miranda Klein)
6th-8th – Crescendo Voices (Curtis Resnick, Alliana Lili Yang)
9th-12th – Jaden & Mina (Mina Lim, Jaden Maspaitella)
