Big Sandy Singers and Band

The Big Sandy Singers and Band will hold auditions on Tuesday, April 21 in the Gearheart Auditorium on the Prestonsburg campus of Big Sandy Community and Technical College.

Operated through the fine arts department of BSCTC, the Big Sandy Singers and Band are an elite group of students who serve as ambassadors of the college while honing their skills in performing arts. Over the course of nine years, the college has awarded nearly $500,000 in scholarships to deserving students in the program.

The Big Sandy Singers and Band allow students the opportunity to follow their passion in music while getting a college education, said Clayton Case, director of Finer Arts at BSCTC.

Haley Sullivan, a first-year BSCTC student and 2014 winner of the Big Sandy Idol Regional Competition, was recently accepted to the music program at the prestigious Belmont University in Nashville.

Some of our students have completed degrees in music and education, Case added. Some are working in Nashville. I would like to think that their time here provided them some guidance and a tremendous start in their journey through higher education.

The Big Sandy Singers and Band will be auditioning for singers, a drummer, guitar players, a bass player, violin/fiddle player and other instruments. Those selected for the group will receive a full-paid scholarship (up to 15 hours a semester) at BSCTC.

Those seeking to audition must RSVP by contacting Case at (606) 886-7388 or by email at
