Announcing the 2022-2023 Williams SING-OFF Winner — Madelyn Buffone! Madelyn is a senior at Marion Center High School in Indiana County, PA. Madelyn has had an ongoing passion for musical theater and singing ever since she was little. She has been in numerous community musical productions over the course of 11 years — her favorite was playing Christine Daae in Phantom of the Opera at her school. After high school, she is hoping to pursue a degree in musical theater and perform.
The winner of this year's Williams SING-OFF Competition will showcase their vocal talent that was top in the region! Every year, the Williams SING-OFF Competition awards the local student (grades: 6-12) singer with the voice of the year, with an opportunity to perform live in the Cultural District at Highmark First Night Pittsburgh on New Year's Eve, a $500 cash prize, and $1,000 donation to the student's school music department. Along the way, finalists' audition videos are judged by this year's celebrity judge Nick Cortazzo, a Pittsburgh native and cast member of Hairspray. Learn more at TrustArts.org/SingOff.
