Sparks & Wiry Cries’ songSLAM Festival concludes on Saturday, January 15, 2022 at 7pm EST at the Blue Building with the NYC songSLAM, a unique community event for composer/performer teams to premiere new art songs and compete for cash prizes, determined by audience voting. songSLAM prizes include First Place ($1,000), Second Place ($600), and Third Place ($400). Additionally, one team will be selected by Sparks & Wiry Cries for a paid commission in a future season.

Building on the incredible response and broad audience reach of the virtual songSLAM in January 2021, Sparks & Wiry Cries will incorporate both recorded and live elements into the 2022 NYC songSLAM competition. For this hybrid format, all participating teams recorded their entry professionally in November 2021; recordings will be shared virtually on Sparks & Wiry Cries’ website and YouTube channel between January 7 to 15, 2022. This final live performance concludes the voting period.

Teams will compete via a text-to-vote function through Give Lively and audiences can vote for as little as $1 starting January 7, 2022 through the Sparks & Wiry Cries website. Teams that raise the most funds will win songSLAM awards. Funds raised during the event are reinvested into larger commissions, future competitions, and new art song initiatives.
