Local singers/songwriters have a chance to display their talents.


The Ottawa Memorial Auditorium’s new program, OMA Songwriter Showcase, will feature talented singer/songwriters in Franklin County community and beyond.


Interested individuals should submit a bio and a video featuring them performing one original and one cover song to tevans@ottawaks.gov by Oct. 1.


All artists, no matter what genre of music are encouraged to apply. A committee of OMA staff and board members will review each application and choose the artists for the twice a month showcase.


Additional videos or virtual performances with the committee may be requested. The Songwriter Showcase dates for this year will be Nov. 5, Nov. 19, Dec. 3 and Dec. 17.


The Songwriter Showcase will be a live streamed show on the OMA Stage with a limited in-person audience (dependent on COVID restrictions at the time).


Participants must perform mostly original material on the Showcase. A second round of applications will be due by Dec. 1. for shows in January and February.
