String Trio for Wedding

Looking for a string trio to play for our wedding Saturday, August 23rd from 4-6:30pm in NE Minneapolis.
Just an FYI this is a gay wedding.
My partner and I have been together for 24 years, 25 by the time we have our wedding in August of 2014! This won't be like most weddings as both sets of our parents will be renewing their vows in a 30-minute ceremony outside on the patio/flower garden, there is a covered area in case of bad weather.
Then we would like the trio to perform for an hour during the cocktail reception in the banquet hall. Then play for during the half hour wedding ceremony. About 2.5 hours total.

Compensation: $150 per musician

Vocal Ensemble for Senior Citizens Group

We are seeking a small student vocal ensemble to volunteer to provide a 30-45 minute performance and discussion for the "Joy in Learning" senior group on Wednesday, December 11, 12:30-1:15 pm. Vocal pieces could include holiday, seasonal, and peace-related as our group is diverse in secular and spiritual backgrounds.

Minneapolis Public Schools' Community Education program in the Prospect Park neighborhood has a program of 12-20 seniors who meet monthly for a luncheon and guest presentation. The "Joy in Learning" group is co-sponsored by Pratt Community Education and the Southeast Seniors Block Nurse program.

The presentation could be a mix of performance and discussion by the students of: why did they decide to major in music at the U, what brought them to the University of Minnesota, what are their career hopes, what are the broader issues they see in support of the arts in our current day culture, and any other pertinent issues? The presentation could be an exchange with the seniors' questions as well as comments.

Some in the group are retired U of M professors. Many in the group are U of M alumni. And some are also musicians. We are seeking not just a performance but also an enriching discussion for the students to share some current day insights of studying music at the U of M.

We are located at 66 Malcolm Ave. SE, but meet at Prospect Park United Methodist Church, 22 Orlin Ave. SE, right across the street from Pratt School.

Solo Piano or Jazz Combo for Fundraiser

The American Cancer Society's Young Professionals Group, "CURE," is hosting its annual fundraising gala on Saturday, January 25th from 8pm-midnight at The Depot in downtown Minneapolis. The theme of the gala is "Casablanca." We anticipate over 400 young professionals will attend -- wonderful exposure for musicians.

I am hoping to connect with an individual or a small group that can perform theme/era-appropriate music at the gala. We would be interested in a piano player (preferably someone who has his/her own keyboard) and/or a small group to perform jazz music early in the evening, i.e., before the DJ starts.

All proceeds raised at the gala are used to fund cancer research grants, so compensation may be minimal but may be subject to negotiation.


Violin Instructor for Young Beginner

Seeking beginning violin introduction/instruction for a young child. Would like to introduce him to the instrument, how to hold it, terminology, and very beginning playing technique. Seeking weekly 30-45 minute lessons in the evenings or on the weekends. Suzuki background preferred.
