The Road to Success starts with an application to audition and a live performance in front of a panel of audition judges. After the panel selects five finalists and two alternates in each division, song selection enters the mix. Each finalist submits three songs for consideration. Music Director Philip Bauman and the chairperson bring forth a recommendation, taking into consideration talent and voice type, appropriateness, style and accessibility of each song. After music selections are approved, the singers prepare, the orchestra secures the music and the stage is set for an amazing evening hosted by a Master of Ceremonies along with on-stage commentary from celebrity judges which adds to the excitement of the evening.
