South Shore Conservatory announced a Kitchen Gadget Throwdown, a virtual competition for families to enjoy this summer.
Starting July 1, families are encouraged to submit videos of themselves making music using kitchen items they can strike, scrape or shake. The winning video, determined by a panel of musicians including Karen Geer, SSC president, and percussionist Ed Sorrentino, receives a $100 cash prize and will be featured in SSC’s The Big Reveal event on Labor Day weekend. The winner will be announced at this event.
Videos should be no longer than three minutes. Singing in the video is permitted. Judges will be looking at qualities such as creativity, cohesiveness and preparation. By submitting a video, participants are giving SSC permission to post it online.
To enter the competition, participants must submit their mp4 to SSC director of performance Beth MacLeodat Largent at email@example.com by Aug. 1.
