Got a song in your heart? Do you enjoy the sound of rushing waterfalls at the Sooke Potholes? Did you have an incredible bike ride along the Lochside trail? Or perhaps you just love to watch the eagles soar along our coastal region.
However you connect with your green persona, the EcoTunes Songwriter's contest is once again looking for artists to share their experiences of the region's natural areas. You don't have to be famous, you just have to sing it in the key of sustainability.
The third annual EcoTunes songwriter's contest is now open and will be accepting submissions until June 9, 2013 at midnight, offering another chance for local, amateur and professional songwriters of all ages to celebrate the Capital Region's landscapes and natural areas through music. There are three prizes to win: a $500, $50 and $25 dollar gift certificate to Larsen Music for first, second and third place. Larsen Music carries a wide selection of musical instruments and accessories, as well as offers rentals, repairs and lessons. So get that banjo you've always wanted or sign up for some guitar lessons - the choice is yours!
The first prize winner will also be invited to perform their song at the 2013 EcoStar Awards Ceremony on September 24, 2013 in Victoria.
Our regional musicians have the ability to teach all of us about the beauty of the natural world and the great things that happen within it. EcoTunes is a great chance to acknowledge and celebrate the songwriters that help make the Capital Region a culturally vibrant place to live. Submit your song today!
