Eric Smith Songwriting Challenge

Post Date:October 05, 2018
The Eric Smith Songwriter Challenge will be Friday, Oct. 19, 7 p.m., in the Black Box Theater, located inside Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater. The theme for this event is “Journey/Destination.”

The Eric Smith Songwriter Challenge takes place once a quarter and is part of The Visual Art League of Lewisville’s Acoustic Friday program. This event is open to all songwriters — seasoned pros or newbies.

Participants will write and perform their songs using the words "journey” and/or “destination," or following a theme based on journey or destination. Songwriters may perform their songs a cappella or on acoustic instruments (amplified acoustic guitars are OK). Solo performances are encouraged, but songwriters may have an accompanist, also playing an acoustic instrument. The exception to the acoustic instrument rule is keyboard or electric bass.

There are no prizes and only two rules: Songs must be written specifically for this challenge and must be debuted at the event.

This event is free to attend. The Visual Art League of Lewisville is one of seven local groups receiving funding from the City of Lewisville through a grant program designed to foster cultural and fine arts in the community.

To reach MCL Grand from Interstate 35E, take exit 452 and proceed east on Main Street to Charles Street. MCL Grand will be on the left. Free public parking is available along Main and Church streets, or at Lewisville City Hall.
