Sali na sa NESCAFÉ 3 in 1 Soundskool 2010!
NESCAFÉ 3in1 Soundskool is an inter-collegiate competition open to young, unsigned bands in the Philippines. It began in 2005 as a competition between college bands in Metro Manila, but has now evolved into the biggest and most anticipated music phenomenon in the country. NESCAFÉ 3in1 Soundskool paved the way to a new breed of talented performers including Hilera, Letter Day Story, and last year’s Grand Winner Eevee.
In its sixth year, NESCAFÉ 3in1 Soundskool 2010 is widening its reach to around 400 colleges and universities nationwide. NESCAFÉ 3in1 Soundskool sets itself apart from other music competitions because it not only makes participants experience fame — it also provides opportunities that help young artists build on their craft to become better overall performers.
“The Philippines is teeming with young talents that have yet to be discovered,” says Ronald Chuacokiong, Marketing Promotions Manager for NESCAFÉ 3 in 1 Soundskool. “That is the premise of NESCAFÉ 3 in 1 Soundskool – to give the opportunity of a lifetime to the untapped potential of the youth and harness their passion and talent for music and turn them into successful musicians.”
Aside from the privilege to undergo music training workshop and mentoring with some of the Philippine music industry’s top performers and personalities, five finalists from all over the country will compete for PhP500,000 and a record label deal with Sony Music Philippines. As a bonus, the school that the winning band is representing will receive a musical showcase worth PhP100,000.
This year, things have become more extreme as the search for the best college bands of the Philippines has intensified. Early this year, NESCAFÉ 3 in 1 Soundskool brought the competition straight to the colleges and universities via a mobile recording studio where young hopefuls can record their entries for the competition. “The search is still on,” shares Chuacokiong. “Recruitment is ongoing, and we are excited to hear the kind of music that will emerge in this year’s competition.”
Chuacokiong adds that NESCAFÉ 3 in 1 Soundskool allows the youth to express themselves and share their passion for music with the rest of the world. “The energy is infectious,” he says, “and it is a privilege for us to give the youth the best venue to be heard.” Of course, the excitement isn’t just for the contestants. NESCAFÉ 3 in 1 Soundskool 2010 now gives supporters the chance to make connections with the bands through text voting and online activities.
Fans can show their support for their favorite bands through text votes, which will be included in the criteria for the Grand Finals. “Fans can also have a taste of the NESCAFÉ 3 in 1 Soundskool experience through our Facebook fan page and the official website to see what other bands have to offer,” shares Chuacokiong.
NESCAFÉ strongly believes in young, talented Filipinos. NESCAFÉ 3in1 Soundskool has committed itself to discovering the best college bands and helping them become famous. Handa ka na bang sumikat?
