The Connecticut Highly Unsuccessful Songwriters Association presents the first annual Sandy Song Contest, to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts and climate change research.
Participants will write and record an original song, which in some way speaks to the impact of Hurricane Sandy on us, and more so our neighbors in New York and New Jersey. A modest fee will be charged for each participant to enter one song only.
A panel of un-noteworthy non-experts will chose 10 semi-finalists, and these artists will perform their songs in the summer at the Sandy Song Festival.
A CD of Sandy Songs will be compiled, and proceeds from the contest, the festival and the CD compilation will go toward organizations involved in Hurricane Sandy relief, and the study of climate change.
Further details on the contest, the festival and the compilation will be forthcoming, but interested parties are invited to attend the first official meeting of CHUSA, on Feb. 2, 2013, at 5 p.m.
The Connecticut Highly Unsuccessful Songwriters Association will be an organization committed to nurturing the time-honored craft of composing songs, pretty much whether anyone wants to listen to them or not.
Membership to CHUSA will be free, but members will be required to demonstrate the ability to write and perform a song others may or may not want to hear.
The agenda of February’s meeting will include the establishment of CHUSA, and ironing out the details of the contest, festival and compilation.
To attend February’s meeting, or for more information, contact CHUSA’s founding father and CEO, Dave Downs, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 860-344-8297.
And thanks for listening.
