Day 3 of "Where is Toshi"

Hello everybody and thank you for taking the time to come back to the blog. I wanted to do an update for everybody in regards to the "Where is Toshi" contest.

So far there have been a lot of winners, with many more to follow. I think it is a wonderful thing knowing that we have so many people participating in this huge event, and that even more people are joining in every day. Whenever I log onto our Twitter, Myspace or Facebook and see that the people following us has jumped over 10 or 20 people per day it makes all of us here happy to know how much we have had an impact. It wouldn't be at all possible without the amazing people who make up our music community!

We here ask you though to please invite your friends in onto our contest. Bring them along or do whatever is needed to make sure we can get more people! Show them our Twitter or Myspace. Make them a fan on our Facebook! Get them involved and make them JOIN the movement.

So to sum this up I can say thank you to everyone who has ever donated, came to one of our concerts, let their kids play in the youth orchestra or just even picked up an instrument or helped us in anyway. You are the best.

Keep it here for more information and updates.

Where is Toshi?

If you have been following our MySpace, Twitter, or Facebook you might have seen an announcement about our upcoming “Where is Toshi?” Contest. Well all of us at The OSFL are pleased to announce the “Where is Toshi” Contest! The rules are simple and everyone can play!

Here how it works: Between the days of July 20-25, we will be moving our giant Toshi picture around the Gaffer District in Corning. He will be moved everyday and each day clues will be announced on Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter as to where he is. Clues will be different on each site so be sure to “be our friend” everywhere for the most help in finding him. All you have to do is be one of the first 5 people to tell us where he is in an email to and you will win a pair of angel passes for any OSFL concert!

Everyone is eligible each day so make sure to go looking Monday through Saturday. That isn’t all though! Everyone who sends us a correct answer will also be entered in a drawing for a BIG PRIZE! Dinner with Toshi AND an autographed giant poster! :D So get ready for adventure, and help us find Toshi!!!
