What is YOS Open Mic?

If you want to get out there and show the world that talent you have been keeping to yourself, now is your chance!
The "Youth On Stage Open Mic" program is geared for community youth performers or youth entertainers from about 5 years old up to about 25 who have a "family friendly" talent to share.
It might be singing, playing an instrument, storytelling, essay reading, poetry, tap dance, comedian, magician, a band or ensemble. You name it, we'll likely approve of it! 

When is it?
Presented and sponsored by the Brainerd Elks Lodge #615 and held the 4th Tuesday of the month , 2 hours long with sign up for 15 minute time slots.

The Youth On Stage Program is run purely by volunteers, and these are the people who keep the wheels turning so young people can make a name for themselves.   If you are interested in joining the team don't hesitate to reach out to us and we'll get you onboard.

Mark's Vision

In addition to starting the ball rolling for this program, Mark Munson's
dream of starting a 'School Of Rock' in the Brainerd area came true

The event was a huge success which with a packed house at the final Rock concert!
