Attention musicians! Trans-Siberian Orchestra has a chance for you to play and win BIG! If you’ve been stuck at home practicing your instrument for the past few months, it just may pay off. You could score $1,000 for yourself, and another $1,000 for the local United Way COVID-19 Relief Fund!
Log on to Trans-Siberian.com. There you’ll find the play-along track for guitar, bass, drums, piano, and violin, for their hit, “Siberian Sleigh Ride.” Musically inclined fans simply need to record a video of themselves playing along to the backing tracks with their preferred instrument. Then upload it to YouTube using the tag #TSOPlayAlong2020. All of the details can be found HERE. There’s even a promo video which you can view HERE.
- Step 1 – DOWNLOAD SHEET MUSIC | Download the sheet music and track of “Siberian Sleigh Ride” that is missing their instrument’s part by visiting Sheet Music Direct (TSO website has a link). From there, follow the directions to sign up for Hal Leonard’s My Library and download the music (it’s free)!
- Step 2 – PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT | Use the sheet music and backing track to rehearse your performance.
- Step 3 – TURN IT TO ELEVEN | Record a video playing their part to the track. Get creative (fans for wind-effect, giant amps allowed, lasers discouraged for in-home use)!
- Step 4 – BECOME A VIDEO STAR | Upload the video to YouTube using the tag #TSOPlayAlong2020 so that everyone can see your skills! Be sure to share it on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the hashtag (be sure to make sure your post is public)!
- Step 5 – SIT BACK AND WATCH LEADERBOARD
The winning video will be selected on August 1st, 2020. Those interested in participating are encouraged to post their video as soon as possible and ask their friends, family and/or followers to watch and like their favorite entries!
The grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 American Express gift card (to buy a new amp, donate to a cause, pay a bill, or… whatever!). PLUS, TSO will match the value of your gift card and donate to the United Way COVID-19 Relief Fund, and you get to choose where it goes from there! Choose the national organization, or a local chapter of United Way to benefit your own community or one greatly affected by COVID-19.
