We'd like you to star in our CMN Promo Video!
The Children's Music Network is making a promo video, and we'd like to feature you! Have you seen those internet videos where people around the world all sing pieces of the same song and it's put together in one cool video? Well, that's what we're going to do.
This will be a collaborative project showcasing the talents of CMN members across the country and beyond. If you're coming to the CMN conference in Hyannis in October, we can shoot video and record audio of some people there, but we are very interested in getting a wide variety of backgrounds (mountains, cities, playgrounds, music rooms, fields of flowers, tunnels...anything visually interesting), so we encourage you to shoot in your home background.

For more information, see the e-mail sent on 7/27 or contact Alice Burba.

Social Media Corner

Hello everyone!

Twitter can be a great way to get in touch with organizations or individuals you admire. Due to the public nature of the platform, everyone can see what everyone else is saying or thinking. For this reason, organizations are much more likely to respond. This can be useful if you have a customer service problem with a company, but it can also make it easy to bring things to others' attention. For example, do you love Eric Litwin's new series on the Nut Family? Tell him so on Twitter! Do you think Musicians Without Borders is doing good work or could use your help in some way? Let them know. You'd be surprised how many of your tweets will be answered, and a few might even start a valuable conversation.

This year's Conference hashtag is #cmnsings2017. Whenever you share on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram about the Conference, be sure to use our hashtag! And send a Facebook evite to all your friends.

See you there. #cannotwait
