The Zecchino d'Oro castings continue their journey through Italy and arrive in Sicily to transform the dream of boys and girls who wish to become the soloists of the next edition of the singing event into reality, accompanied by the Piccolo Coro dell'Antoniano, directed by Sabrina Simoni. Three new dates to put on the agenda: Friday 10 and Saturday 11 May the appointment is at the Forum Shopping Center in Palermo (Via Filippo Pecoraino, 90124), while On Sunday 12 May the auditions will arrive at the Letojanni Multifunctional Palace (Piazza Corrado Cagli, 98037), in the province of Messina. The selections will be held from 10.00 to 13.00 and from 14.00 to 18.00. Participation is free. Signing up for castings is simple: just connect to the Zecchino d'Oro official website and select the stage of interest. Registrations can be made until the Thursday preceding the audition date. Even when applications are closed it is possible to participate in the selections by showing up in person between 5.00 pm and 6.00 pm. The official casting playlist is available on the Piccolo Coro dell'Antoniano YouTube channel from which each child will be able to choose their favorite song and prepare to sing in view of the auditions. The playlist contains the great Zecchino d'Oro classics, but also the successes of the latest editions.

There are 67 boys and girls from Sicily who, over the years, have participated in the event: the last victory for a song sung by a little Sicilian talent dates back to two years ago, when “Il panda con le ali” , played by Mariapaola Chiummo, won the 2022 edition of the Zecchino d'Oro. “The event is a special experience for the young aspiring soloists and their families, and certainly the casting itself becomes an opportunity to get in touch with other boys and girls, to sing their favorite songs and share a pinch of the magical world of the Zecchino d'Oro”, explains the director of the Piccolo Coro dell'Antoniano Sabrina Simoni. “We like to be able to continue to tell and spread good values ​​to all boys and girls with the Little Choir and with music. If one voice is heard little, together with many others it becomes a choir”, adds Brother Giampaolo Cavalli, Director of Antoniano. The Zecchino d'Oro casting tour is carried out in collaboration with Wobinda Produzioni. The children who pass the first phase will then be heard again by Antoniano's commission, and will then enter the second selection phase.
