In 2015, Cherry Creek Media began what has become a favorite holiday tradition: “The Christmas Concert Connection.” Now in its 5th year, it works like this:
Western Montana individuals, organizations, schools and churches are invited to submit an audio recording of a Christmas musical performance. Actual performances and rehearsals are both welcome, as are recordings done in a previous year that were never submitted. Submissions will be uploaded to the station websites for voting by the public. Submissions will be accepted from Monday, November 25 through Wednesday, December 18th. Listeners will vote from December 20th through December 25th, and the winners will be announced the week of December 31.
Pepsi-Cola of Missoula will award $500 cash to the 1st place winner and $250 cash to the 2nd place winner. We will broadcast the performances on MAX Missoula 98.7 / 96.9 on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for our community to enjoy. So . . . are you ready to dazzle everyone with your best Jingle Bells and Silent Night? Can you think of some nifty ways for your group to spend some cool Christmas cash? Then get your group together and send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 18th 2019; MP3 is preferred, MP4 will be accepted. Call 728.5000 if you have questions.
Now is the time to vote!
The Rules: The contest officially starts on Monday, November 25th at 12:01 AM (MST) and entries will be excepted until Wednesday, December 18th at 5 PM (MST). Voting will officially begin on Friday, December 20th at 12:01 AM (MST) and run until 11:59 PM on Wednesday, December 25th. The winner will announced and contacted via phone call, email or combination of the two anytime from Monday, December 30th through Friday, January 3rd between regular business hours (8:00 AM – 5:00 PM MST). The 1st place school or organization will receive a check from Pepsi Cola of Missoula in the amount of $500. The same will be awarded to the second place contestant in the amount of $250. You are allowed to submit one performance, per school or organization (the only exception to the rule is if there is a different department within that organization – like a choir versus the band from the same school). When the voting begins you are allowed one vote, per day, per IP address. Standard contest rules apply. To read them, click here.
