Top Talent



Top Talent LIVE 2023 | April 29th Matinee at 2 p.m. EST
 

Top Talent is a spectacular competition that showcases outstanding students in performing arts from all levels of our elementary, middle and high schools.

Known for producing performers who have gone on to excel on the national stage, the event has produced keen interest among our school district’s singers, dancers, musical & novelty performers.

OCPS offers high-quality arts programs for students at every grade level. Students are actively engaged in  performing arts through a sequential, comprehensive standards-based curriculum that develops their artistry. By expanding proficiency in visual art, music, dance, or theatre, students develop self-esteem, confident self-expression, reflective and evaluative skills, critical-thinking skills, and appreciation of others’ work.

This exciting afternoon includes expert judges, Fan Favorite
voting and cash awards for winners.
An evening you don’t want to miss!

Proceeds from our Top Talent event will help support the Foundation and provide arts enrichment for students experiencing poverty and homelessness. We are grateful to all of our generous sponsors and our audience members for investing in our children today; it strengthens our entire community tomorrow.
