No purchase is necessary to enter or win. A purchase will not increase your chances of winning. All federal, state, local and municipal laws and regulations apply. Void where prohibited.
The "DSO Sound of Music Karaoke Ticket Sweepstakes" is open to legal residents of Michigan who are at least eighteen (18) years old at the time of entry. Employees of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO), DSO Board of Directors, and DSO Sponsors are not eligible. The Sweepstakes is subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
The Sweepstakes is sponsored by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO).
Agreement to Official Rules:
Participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes entrants full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of DSO, which are final and binding. Winning a prize is contingent upon being compliant with these Official Rules and fulfilling all other requirements set forth herein.
The Sweepstakes begins on July 7, 2023 at 12 pm and ends on July 23, 2023 at 11:59 pm (the Sweepstakes Period). Entries that are submitted before or after the Sweepstakes period will be disqualified. Submissions will be accepted for the duration of the Sweepstakes using any of the following methods:
How to Enter:
All entries are submitted by tagging the DSO @detroitsymphony in a Sound of Music reel video. Entries are limited to one (1) valid Instagram account per person, for the duration of the sweepstakes period. Entries received from a single person or household using multiple Instagram accounts will be void. For entries to be valid, entrants must follow the instructions provided in the sweepstakes announcement post. Winners will only be contacted via Instagram, from @detroitsymphony. All entries, and the related contact information, become the property of DSO (note: email addresses/mailing addresses will not be sold).
Prize Drawing and Winner Notification:
On or about July 24, 2023, DSO will select potential winners in a random drawing from all eligible entries received. The odds of being selected as a winner for any and all drawings depend on the number of entries received. DSO will attempt to notify the potential winner via telephone or email on or about July 26, 2023. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within five (5) days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, DSO may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries.
In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Sweepstakes is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, bug, worm, unauthorized human intervention or other technical problem, or in the event the Sweepstakes is unable to run as planned for any reason, as determined by DSO in its sole discretion, DSO may, in its sole discretion, either (a) suspend the Sweepstakes to address the impairment and then resume the Sweepstakes in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules or (b) terminate the Sweepstakes and, in the event of termination, award the prize at random from among the eligible, non-suspect entries received up to the time of the impairment. DSO reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to damage the website or undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, DSO reserves the right to seek damages (including attorneys fees) and any other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by DSO to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
Release and Limitations of Liability:
By participating in the Sweepstakes, entrants agree to release and hold harmless DSO, and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies, other companies associated with the Sweepstakes, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives, and agents (the Released Parties) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use of the prize, including, but not limited to: (a) any technical errors associated with the Sweepstakes, including lost, interrupted or unavailable Internet Service Provider (ISP), network, server, wireless service provider, or other connections, availability or accessibility or miscommunications or failed computer, satellite, telephone, cellular tower or cable transmissions, lines, or technical failure or jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected transmissions or computer hardware or software malfunctions, failures or difficulties; (b) unauthorized human intervention in the Sweepstakes; (c) mechanical, network, electronic, computer, human, printing or typographical errors; (d) any other errors or problems in connection with the Sweepstakes, including, without limitation, errors that may occur in the administration of the Sweepstakes, the announcement of the winner, the cancellation or postponement of the event and/or the flyover, if applicable, or in any Sweepstakes-related materials; or (e) injury, death, losses or damages of any kind, to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrants participation in the Sweepstakes or acceptance, receipt or misuse of the prize (including any travel or activity related thereto). Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action, the Released Parties liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Sweepstakes, and in no event shall the entrant be entitled to receive attorney’s fees. Released Parties are also not responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by site users, tampering, hacking, or by any equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes. Entrant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages.
Except where prohibited, each entrant agrees that all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Sweepstakes or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located Wayne County, Detroit, Michigan. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, entrant's rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of DSO in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the laws of Michigan, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules, which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than Michigan.
