community ensemble competition
During fall pledge drive
During our upcoming pledge drive September 12-17 we’re having a Community Ensemble Competition. As people pledge financial support (minimum of $5) to Classical 89, they can also mention the name of their favorite local non-professional community ensemble (orchestra, choir, band, etc.). The ensemble that gets the most votes will win an on-air advertising package of 55 messages! The second place winner will win an on-air advertising package of 30 messages!
In addition, during our on-air drive we would like to fill each of our co-host spots with someone who will promote their favorite community ensemble while fundraising for Classical 89. This will be a great opportunity for ensembles to get some free air time.
If you’re a member of a community music ensemble, please encourage your members and fans to pledge during Classical 89’s pledge drive and to vote for your ensemble. Also, if you have people in your organization who are interested in being a co-host during our pledge drive, please have them contact Adam Anderson at Classical89@byu.edu.
