The City of Albany’s Cultural Affairs team along with local partners have launched the Capital Region Covers Challenge! We are searching for musicians all over the area to record and share a video of a cover song with us. All of our partners will be sharing these videos on their social media channels. Each musician who submits should challenge an additional three musical friends to join in! Make sure they tag #CapitalCovers
After the postponement of Tulip Festival we felt it was important to still be able to share content for the community to enjoy in their homes, while being able to showcase the amazing talent we have in this region.
We have partnered with WEXT Radio 97.7 & 106.1, Nippertown, WEQX 102.7 and NYS Music to help us grow this challenge. Be sure to follow them and our own pages @AlbanyNYEvents in theweeks to come!
If you are interested and want to send in a #CapitalCover it’s very simple! Record a video of your song and send over to Keith Morales at Kmorales@albanyny.gov! We hope to share as many of these videos as we can over the next month and beyond!
