OSSINING, N.Y. -- Two Ossining kids--Jade Marie Kielb and Chris Grant--will be auditioning for School of Rock Open Call on Broadway at the end of February.

They are both students at Mike Risko Music in Ossining.

Jade studies voice and piano and she has just started studying the bass for the audition. Chris studies drums and he is doing some singing lessons to prepare him for the audition.

They have to be able to sing 18 bars of a contemporary song. They will work on their audition material and receive coaching to be able to play and sing at the same time.

They will be receiving help with their resume and working with local photographer Greg Perry to get them headshots.

"This is such a great opportunity for our kids and we are so happy to have guidance from Mike Risko Music," said Stephanie Grant, Chris' mom. "All kids should have amazing opportunities like this."

Thousands of people audition during an open call. The young actor and actress will get in line early that day.

"The casting agency sent us the information and we were excited to send students to audition. The audition process experience alone is so valuable regardless of the outcome," said Mike Risko. "We will celebrate their hard work and no matter what, they will be rock stars."
