Senior Star is Canada’s largest talent competition dedicated to seniors. Now in its 7th year, this singing and musical instrument competition is open to anyone 65 years and over and a Canadian resident.
During the regional competitions, contestants were given a maximum of five minutes to sing a song, play an instrument, or do both, and their performance was videotaped. The competition outcome was decided by a panel of three judges, made up of local musical experts, government officials, and media representatives.
The winners were presented with a Senior Star trophy and the top two winners advance for consideration for Chartwell’s Senior Star National Final. Videos of the first and second place winners from across Canada will be considered by a celebrity panel of judges who will narrow the list to 10 competitors. Those individuals will be invited to compete in the Senior Star National Final, held in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT owns and manages retirement residences and long term care homes across Canada including Lynnwood, Birchwood and Hampton House.
