At Hansen Multimedia, we are dedicated to giving exemplary service to each of our clients. When a client notices as recognizes our efforts, we are humbled by the commendation and proud that our dedication is serving our clients well. So when Music for All, an organization we have been privileged to work with since 2005, told us they had nominated us as “Best Vendor” in the 2013 Pinnacle Awards we were thrilled!

The Pinnacle Awards are presented annually by the International Festivals & Events Association. The awards recognize outstanding accomplishments and top quality creative, promotional, operational, and community outreach programs and materials produced by festivals and events around the world. Hansen Multimedia supports the mission of Music for All with services including website support, print material design, and video production. Music for All submitted some of the pieces we produced for them and nominated Hansen Multimedia for the Best Vendor/supplier Award for an organization with a budget over $1.5 Million — and we won the gold!

Music for All’s mission is to create, provide and expand positively life-changing experiences through music for all. Music for All is one of the largest and most influential national music education organizations in support of active music making. Music for All is unique in that it combines programming at a national level with arts education advocacy. Bands of America (BOA) and Orchestra America are programs of Music for All with a 38-year history of providing spectacular educational experiences and performance events for instrumental music programs and students.

Says Debbie Laferty Asbill, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Music for All,

“Through our relationship with Hansen Multimedia, Music for All projects a consistent, professional brand in every interaction with our target audience: students, teachers, parents, families, administrators, fans, supporters and donors. Hansen Multimedia’s collaborative process and state-of-the-art skill set elevates Music for All’s message above the masses, allowing us to be heard above the fray.”

Thank you, Music for All for this nomination. We at Hansen Multimedia were honored by your strong testimonial, an excerpt of which follows:

“With MFA’s increasing use of video storytelling in our marketing and fundraising efforts, Hansen Multimedia is a partner in every sense of the word. The principal and staff of Hansen Multimedia have a deep understanding of MFA’s mission and an enthusiasm for helping MFA share the importance and benefits of music education. For over two years, Music for All has relied on the expertise of Hansen Multimedia to help elevate its marketing and communications to the next level.

“MFA staff collaborates with Hansen Multimedia to define the deliverables, then “lets go,” knowing that Hansen Multimedia will contract the staff, equipment and organize the production schedule to deliver the end results, all within the defined budget.”

And we appreciate that Music for all has placed their faith in us to help them communicate their vision “to create, provide and expand positively life-changing experiences through music for all.”  For their accolades, Hansen Multimedia and pieces we produced won FOUR Pinnacle awards:
