There are some things that I just will not say no to. Some things speak to my heart more than others. This is why I am breaking my own blogging rule, posting about an event and having a giveaway while another one is still running. Let’s call it a Flash Friday Giveaway with Heart shall we?
In just one weeks time, on Friday December 14th two of my most loved things will come together for one night at Hamer Hall in Melbourne. Great music and a lot of heart and soul.
The Key of Sea, brings some of Australia’s finest (and some of my own favourite) musicians together with Australian-based musicians from refugee/asylum seeker backgrounds. Collaboration, music and voice. Read more…
Don’t you just hate it when you go to a movie and someone eats their popcorn too loudly? Even worse, takes an age to open a packet, rustling up a noise storm in the process? Or is that just me? I admit that when it comes to movies I’m the silence is golden type.
There is however, one exception. Music. A good song in a movie makes me want to sing along. Make that movie a musical and it’s all I can do to keep quietly sitting in my seat. Music is made to dance to, and sing to, often at the top of your lungs with gusto and questionable pitch.
Apparently that kind of shenanigans is frowned upon in cinemas. Party poopers.
With this in mind you can imagine my excitement when I saw The Sound of Music movie was screening at the Arts Centre. Wait, it gets better, the Sound of Music A Sing-a-long. That’s right, sing-a-long!
You don’t even need to remember all the words, because as the movie is played on the big screen, the words come up along the bottom. Could it get any better?
Well, yes dear readers, it could. Many audience members glam it up in costumes from the movie. I know! Walking, talking, singing brown paper packages tied up with string, lonely goat herds, Maria… the Apls.
You can imagine how excited I was to read this. Now imagine how excited I am to have tickets for the Friday performance. I. Can. Not. Wait.
Now, here’s the best bit of all. All you musical sing-a-long lovers get a chance to go too. That’s right, I have four tickets to giveaway. Split into double passes. So two lucky people will win a ticket for themselves and one for a sing-a-long loving friend. Double passes are valued at $104 each.
The catch? You need to be in Melbourne on Friday 20th July for the 7.30pm show at the Art Centre State Theatre. Vocal cords at the ready, costumes optional.
For a chance to win, leave a comment below telling me what song you just have to sing along to and why. Entries close 8pm Friday 8th June when comments on this post will be closed.
Winners will be announced on facebook and twitter and notified via email on Tuesday 12th June. Winners will be given three days to respond to claim tickets. After this time, tickets will be redrawn.
It is altogether far too hard to choose clips from Sound of Music to sing-a-long too. Just one does not seem enough. Now, I dare you to not sing-a-long, and not spend at least the next twenty minutes watching clips from the movie.
Disclaimer: I received three double passes from Cananagh PR for this giveaway. One double pass for myself and two to giveaway.
Edit: The double passes have been won by Kirrily Whatman and Liz Halley! Winners were chosen by my mother in law, to ensure impartiality.
