Survivors of the first round of mass auditions will contest the semifinals, to be held at the Pudong New Stage on Aug 23 and 24. The final showdown will be held at the Shanghai Oriental Art Center on Sept 22.
To ensure a fair and open competition, professional judges including singers from the Shanghai Light Music Orchestra, teachers at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, and famous musicians in Shanghai will be invited.
