For four days in April, whistlers from all over the world descend on the quaint, somewhat remote North Carolina town of Louisburg to whistle operettas, concertos, Beatles medleys, and everything in between at the International Whistlers Competition. This year, mild-mannered graphic designer by day and world-class whistler by night Tim Eggert — who finished 12th at the competition two years ago — is gunning for the number one spot.
The Whistler follows the 33 year-old Eggert in his attempt to claim the title of the world’s best competitive whistler. (Eggert’s performance of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” won the Allied Arts competition at the 2011 International Whistlers Convention.)
Scheduled for release in 2014.
