Sugar Grove—There’s still time for teen musicians to get their Teen Rock applications in to perform at the Sugar Grove Corn Boil Friday through Sunday, July 29, 30 and 31.

The application deadline has been extended through Friday, July 8, to turn in applications. The forms can be found on the Sugar Grove Corn Boil website at under Entertainment and Events. Applicants are advised to disregard the original June 18 deadline marked on the applications.

“This is an opportunity for teens from anywhere in the area that have an ensemble or solo act to perform on the main stage,” committee member Beverly Holmes Hughes said.

She said the music helps the Corn Boil and shows that the committee is fostering the idea that music is important. Hughes said it gives the young musicians a chance to perform on the main stage with their friends and family in the audience.

The applications can be dropped off at the Sugar Grove Library, 125 S. Municipal Drive, and after-hours in the drop box marked “media.” The event is not restricted to Sugar Grove, and musicians can be from anywhere in the area.

Applications will be accepted through the opening of the library Saturday morning at 9 a.m.

Teen Rock is sponsored by Hix Bros. Music located in Batavia and Aurora.
