Early Bird Finalists Announced

June 6th, 2011

Congratulations to this year’s Mountain Stage NewSong Contest Early Bird Finalists

Bryyn Sarah Donner
Lausanne, Switzerland
Princeton, NJ

As this year’s Early Bird finalists, Bryyn and Sarah are the first two of twelve artists to be chosen to perform in the tenth annual Mountain Stage NewSong Contest ‘Award Round’ finals on October 20 here in New York City. This performance competition will be hosted by Arts World Financial Center and held at the Winter Garden.

Thank you to all who submitted to the General Round early enough to be considered for these spots. Please know that your submissions are still being considered for the remaining General Round spots (3), which we’ll announce in late September.

In the meantime, the regional rounds are well underway, and the deadline to submit to your region is July 29. The regional rounds feature ten regional finalists we select from each region, and include ‘virtual’ live rounds featuring live performance videos submitted by the finalists. There’s also a ‘People’s Choice’ award given to the regional finalist who receives the most votes . . . it’s fun, and a great way to introduce your music to thousands of new music fans as well as network with other finalists in your region.

Thanks again to all who have entered so far, and for helping to make our tenth annual contest the best yet.
