Orland Township to host Senior American Idol Oct. 21, 2021
Orland Township’s evening of dinner, dancing, and live entertainment.
Join Orland Township Supervisor Paul O’Grady and the Board of Trustees for an evening of dinner, dancing, and live entertainment as fourteen seniors compete for the title of 2021 Orland Township Senior American Idol!
After three rounds of singing their favorite songs, one of the fourteen dazzling contestants of this year’s competition will take home the trophy and title of 2021 Orland Township Senior American Idol.
Local celebrity judges include the beloved musician Blake Alexander and award-winning choreographer and instructor Maria Villari of American Dance Center.
Orland Township will also welcome back former Senior American Idol winner Laura Alberts to judge the night, after she took home the trophy in 2016.
Scores are determined by a combination of points from the judges, audience vote and ballot box totals. Each contestant will also have their own ballot box, in which audience members are encouraged to fill the boxes of their favorite singer with money.
Funds are donated to the Orland Township Scholarship Foundation, which the event directly supports.
The competition, graciously sponsored by Evergreen Senior Living of Orland Park, will take place on Thursday, Oct. 21 at Georgios Banquets, 8800 W. 159th St., Orland Park.
Doors open at 4:30 p.m., dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. with the singing competition following dinner. Tickets are $30 and include a plated dinner and cash bar. Tickets will not be sold at the door, and must be purchased in advance at Orland Township, 14807 S. Ravinia, Orland Park.
“We promise a very entertaining evening, with fourteen talented singing seniors performing at this year’s competition.” said Supervisor O’Grady.
“I invite the community to attend and help their favorite singer advance to the final round in order to be named this year’s Orland Township Senior American Idol!”
