Catalina Jarocki wins the 2014 Sno Valley Idol Junior contest
Si View Metro Parks hosted the 10th annual Sno Valley Idol Junior Finals on Friday March 28th at the Mount Si High School auditorium in Snoqualmie. 11 young finalists put on an unbelievable show filled with lots of talent and enthusiasm. A panel of three music industry professionals, Annmarie Farris, Susanna Fuller and Danny Kolke, served as the judges scoring contestants on natural ability, quality of performance and audience appeal. They had the very difficult task of selecting the top three performers while the audience of 150 had an opportunity to vote for the People's Choice Award winner from all the finalists.
The 2014 Sno Valley Idol Junior Champion is 12-year old Catalina Jarocki of Snoqualmie. This was Catalina's first time participating in the Sno Valley Idol Junior contest. She won the contest with a stunning performance of Idina Menzel's "Let It Go". The 2014 Runner Up is 10-year old Julian Betz, who wowed the crowds with fun piece "When Will My Life Begin" by Mandy Moore. 13-year old Jessica Conlon placed third with a lovely performance of "Who You Are" by Jessie J. The audience voted Julian Betz as the People's Choice Award winner.
Sno Valley Idol Junior competition is one of many community wide special events organized by Si View Metro Parks. The contest is open to local soloists ages 10 to 14 giving them an opportunity showcase their talents, gain stage experience and build confidence. Finalists were selected by the judges following auditions in early February. Special thanks to the volunteer team of Michael Csendes, Annmarie Farris, Susanna Fuller, Danny Kolke, and master of ceremonies Fritz Ribary as well as prize donors Boxleys Restaurant and North Bend Premium Outlets.
