Wildflower Festival


Sunday, April 22, 2018 auditions for the Wildflower! Budding Talent Vocal Competition were held at the Richardson Senior Center from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. This year more than 60 talented young singers auditioned and the judges had the challenging task of narrowing the list down to a select few.  The Budding Talent Producers, Catherine and Daniel Burdette sent out an email on Monday, April 23rd with the list of finalists and a statement to all who participated:

“We want to thank all who registered and auditioned this year. We have a very limited amount of time on stage for finals, so we had to make some really tough cuts. We are so impressed and hope that you continue to sing, perform, and improve your skill. Thank you again for sharing your talents with us.”
