Tim Elvy, president of Elvy Sound Solutions, the exclusive distributor for Brand Synthetic Mouthpieces for brasswind instruments, has announced that Elvy Sound Solutions and Brand Mouthpieces are teaming up to sponsor two marching bands with up to 20 brand mouthpieces per band.

Elvy states, “The entry is very simple. All you need to do is to tell us in two short paragraphs what makes your band different. Do you have a winning spirit or has your group gone through adversity and triumphed? We want to know. Tell us something unique. We want to tell your story and help your winning spirit with the best synthetic brasswind mouthpieces in the world!”

Elvy goes on to say, “we know there are a lot of untold stories out there. Stories of triumph over adversity and bands that display a giving spirit and educators who inspire their students. We want to let people know who they are and share good news for a change, especially in the age of budget cuts.”
