Latest competition....win a £50 voucher to spend at www.musicroom.com(April 13, 2012)
Attention all Saxophone quartets / woodwind ensembles, individual players and You Tube fans!
We are hosting a new competition with the prize of a £50 voucher to spend at www.musicroom.com (one of our stockists) and publicity for you / your ensemble for one month (we will publish a feature of you on our website and publicise your events etc via twitter / facebook).
The deadline is 30th May 2012.
To enter we would like you to submit a video (preferably in MPEG 4 or H.264) of you playing one of our pieces (must be live, we need to see you lovely people!). The piece must be anything from our catalogue, and for ensembles we are offering the chance for you to buy a short piece for just £1 in our 'bargain basement' section of the shop to encourage all to take part if you do not own music by us already. There is even a free piece; 'Loretta learns the blues' with accompaniment (piano or mp3) in our free resources page. A great opportunity for you / your ensemble to prepare material to a polished standard and step out of the boat! You can have a piano accompanist, or be playing along to CD backing track, you can have doubled up the parts if you wish to include more players etc.
Simply then submit your recording file (or link to your own Youtube link if you'd prefer to add it on to your own Youtube profile) to; masquerademus@gmail and please include;
Your name/s (listing all ensemble members and Ensemble name if applicable)
A contact email address
Your country of residence
A winner will be chosen from those received by midnight 30th May 2012. We will judge performances on interpretation and flair in performance so don't necessarily require a virtuoso end product!
