Operation Arts Competition

This week on Third Floor Views we talked to the folks from Operation ARTS Foundation (www.operationarts.com) and Sonor Wines America (http://Sonorwinesamerica.com) who have formed a unique partnership to promote local musicians and local wines. Together they will be hosting a competition to find a band who will help create a music infused wine. Listen to the interview to learn more about Operation ARTS Foundation, Sonor Wines America, the sonification process, and the upcoming competition. Podcast hosted by Janet Jefferson and edited by Caitlyn Mateik.

More about the competition: 

Musicians of all genres will compete for the chance to have their music infused into wine. Each wine receives an unmistakable “note” of flavor through the sonication process, allowing music to become an integral part of the wine’s character. Musicians from the DC Metropolitan area will compete for the chance to have their song infused into a batch of wine by being played continuously into the fermentation tanks.  Plus, the band will get the chance to have their song and image be featured on the label for each bottle of wine created from that batch.

Entries are a tax-deductible entry fee of $20 and will be accepted until the deadline: June 2nd, 2021. Winners will be announced on June 25, 2021, online during the live virtual event: Who’s Next?! 2021.

Proceeds raised from this event will go to the winning artist’s music licensing fee for the song and image. A portion of the funds will also go to the nonprofit organization Operation ARTS Foundation programming, which helps to educate and support local artists of all disciplines. Our hope is to have an annual fundraiser concert in the future where we can hear the musicians live and drink the wines made the previous year’s post-pandemic. Help develop the creative economy with Operation ARTS Foundation and sign up today!
