What is Rising Star?

Rising Star Retreat is an experience for women, trans, and

non-binary young adults from 14-23 years old that are looking to gain more experience in the music industry. 


The event is formally known as the Rising Star Youth Competition, a music competition for women, non-binary, and co-ed musical acts where participants are paired with mentors.


This new retreat expands the events impact through one-on-one connections with professionals, workshops, and opportunities to showcase their talents. Participants also have the opportunity to win prizes that will help forward their musical journey. Stay tuned for more information.
