“Sounds of Springville”, a won­der­ful suc­cess

Serve Daily - - NEWS - By Shannon Acor

Springville’s young mu­si­cians had a chance on June 12th to show­case their talent and win over $900 prizes at the “Sounds of Springville.” The mu­si­cal com­pe­ti­tion was held in con­junc­tion with Art City Days and un­der the di­rec­tion of the ASAP Coali­tion (Art City Sub­stance Abuse Preven­tion). The rules were sim­ple; any­one ages 12-20 liv­ing in Springville or Maple­ton want­ing to dis­play their mu­si­cal talent in 15 min­utes or less was el­i­gi­ble.

This year’s con­test was open to not only bands, but mu­si­cians of any kind. Ac­cord­ing to Shannon Acor, ASAP’s Co­or­di­na­tor, the goal was to get 10 com­peti­tors. “We fi­nally had to close the event with 14 en­tries, our three hour time limit was more than filled!” The “Sounds of Springville” re­ceived great com­mu­nity sup­port from two lo­cal youth bands. Acor said, “We are so grate­ful for the talent of Syn­ergy and Black Tie Event. They pro­vided en­ter­tain­ment be­fore and af­ter the event with­out any com­pen­sa­tion. They added a spe­cial touch to the night.” She con­tin­ued to ex­plain how Springville’s Moun­tain Rock Mu­sic helped dou­ble the prize money by of­fer­ing twice the cash prize with in-store credit.

The com­pe­ti­tion was judged by four in­di­vid­u­als with ex­ten­sive mu­si­cal back­ground. Two judges have CD’s of their own on the mar­ket. The win­ners of the night were 1st place Brit­tney Joell Sny­der, 2nd place Kate Gab­bitas and there was a third place tie go­ing to The Sam’s Club Fid­dle Band and Deep Re­flec­tions. The win­ners were hon­ored by rid­ing a top a fire en­gine in the Art City Day’s Pa­rade and were rec­og­nized at Springville’s City Coun­cil Meet­ing. Acor com­mented, “It was truly a night to honor and al­low the great youth in the com­mu­nity to shine. We look for­ward to next year!”
