Valentine's Day is here and Classic 107 listeners entered in droves to win tickets to the WSO & the WJO plus a $50 gift certificate to The Velvet Glove!
All you had to do was email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tweet us @classic107fm or post a message on our Classic 107 Facebook page, telling us what you thought was the most romantic classical work or jazz song.
If we picked your selection to play on air, you were entered into a draw for one of two chances to win a great Valentine's day prize package valued at more than $200 dollars.
Morning Light host Michael Wolch made the draw Thursday morning and our lucky winners were:
Dave La Rue and Maria Lodge! Congratulations!
The two winners will EACH receive:
2 tickets to the WSO's Friday FEB 13th Valentine's concert Romeo & Juliet.
Who says Friday the 13th is unlucky when you could start the Valentine's Day weekend with Ravel's sultry Bolero, a loved one by your side, and music that will score a perfect 10 ! Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet contains the most memorable of all the big tunes that lovers are inspired by. And you won't want to miss the fabulous young soloists, Anderson & Roe working their two-piano magic in Mozart's glorious Double Piano Concerto. A beautiful program for people who believe in love on a special day!
1 $50 Gift Certificate to The Velvet Glove at the Fairmont Hotel where you can enjoy seasonal flavors with a Manitoban flare in The Velvet Glove. Elegant atmosphere with contemporary surroundings, professional service with a friendly and welcoming approach.
2 tickets to the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra's Sunday Feb 15 concert, All My Tomorrows: The Music of Sammy Cahn featuring vocalist Martha Brooks.
Martha Brooks returns to the WJO stage with some of her most personal works; songs that both celebrate the lyrical talent of Sammy Cahn while commemorating Brooks' great love for her late husband. This is a concert that will take you to places deeper than silly little love songs. It aims for artistry with a definite nod to swing in delivering the goods. As a bonus, Brooks will be joined in song by two of Winnipeg's finest vocal jazz ensembles. River East Collegiate Vocalease directed by Nicole Ens will perform at the 2:00pm show and Garden City Groove directed by Stacey Natrass Brown will take the stage at the 7:30pm performance.
There are two performances. One at 2:00 PM & one at 7:30 PM. The winners can choose which one they'd like to attend.
We had so many entries, we decided to add a bonus prize of a pair of tickets to the WSO Valentine's Day Concert. The winner of those tickets was:
Steve Ens. Congratulations Steve!
Thank you again to everyone who entered and, most importantly, Happy Valentine's Day from Winnipeg's Classic 107!
