MetroHealth Announces Six Finalists Will Perform at Sept. 13 Music Festival


The MetroHealth Music Festival Committee has chosen six local musical acts as finalists in the first MetroHealth Music Festival songwriting contest. More than 30 community members entered a contest, writing and performing an original song about MetroHealth. The final six will perform at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13 at the MetroHealth Music Festival for a chance to win a $2500 grand prize. The event takes place at the MetroHealth main campus.

The six finalists include singer-songwriter Harry Bacharach, rapper Hometown Cooking, R&B singer/rapper Aneesh Lasaan, singer-songwriter Liz Mazzei, pop/folk/blues/country singer Diana Tyler and the Progressive EMB Church Spiritual Singers. A panel of judges will pick the final winner. Other musical entertainment will be provided by Humble G, Lauren Lanzaretta and the Sammy Deleon Orchestra. Mitchell’s is providing free ice cream scoops. The free event includes food trucks, face painting and balloon art. MetroHealth encourages attendees to bring “socks for teenagers, new bath toys and small stuffed animals” for MetroHealth’s Foster Care program.
