I anledning af, at Horsens er udpeget som værtsby for Melodi Grand Prix 2016 og MGP 2016, er VIA University College, Kulisselageret, Det Gule Pakhus og Horsens All Stars gået sammen om at skabe en festlig optakt til de officielle musikevents. Det sker i form af en ”International Song Contest in Horsens”, som kommer til at løbe af stablen lige op til det officielle, nationale Melodi Grand Prix.

Arrangementet skal ses som en anerkendelse af, at Horsens er en international by med borgere fra over 60 forskellige lande. Det synes de fire aktører, der er grund til markere, og derfor er begivenheden rettet mod alle borgere i Horsens, uanset oprindelse. Reglerne for deltagelse er enkle: Man skal kunne synge, og man kan deltage enten som solist eller som gruppe. Desuden står det deltagerne frit for at fremføre et covernummer eller egen komposition. I den officielle invitation, der bl.a. annonceres gennem de sociale medier, fremgår det desuden, at der vil blive afholdt auditions på Det Gule Pakhus søndag d. 24. januar, mens selve sangkonkurrencen vil finde sted på Kulisselageret fredag 12. februar.

Styregruppen for arrangementet har også et internationalt tilsnit. Den består af Annemette Glyngø (VIA), Jeppe Vind (Kulisselageret), Lisbeth Ivanhoe Andersen (Det Gule Pakhus), Simon Lundvig (Det Gule Pakhus), Assia Zouaoui (Horsens All Stars) foruden studerende og repræsentanter for De Studerendes Råd på VIA, Carlos Cordeira (Portugal), Inna Simeonova (Bulgarien), Jan Martin Ahlers (Tyskland), Alexander Vinulescu (Bulgarien) samt Filip Chalk (Storbritannien).

Der er åbent for tilmeldinger frem til 18. december på adressen tilmeld.horsensallstars.dk/uisc.
