Kitchen Gadget Throwdown

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

More COVID-19 lemons-into-lemonade! Stuck at home? Check this out!

If you can’t resist using pot covers as cymbals, or wooden spoons as drum
sticks, South Shore Conservatory’s (SSC) Kitchen Gadget Throwdown may be
just the fun virtual competition for you and your family this summer.
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 SSC President Karen Geer and
percussionist Ed Sorrentino, receives a $100 cash prize and is 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 on on-line.

To enter the competition, participants must submit their mp4 to SSC
Director of Performance Beth MacLeod Largent at by Saturday, August 1.
