Small Ensemble for On Campus Event

Bright Lights, a student recognition event will take place on Friday, May 1, 2015. We're hoping to have a music group perform during a reception in the lobby of Northrop from 2:45-4:00 pm.

We were thinking a steel drum ensemble or a jazz combo would be fun, but will consider other types of ensembles as well.

Compensation will be provided. Please contact me to discuss details.


Musicians for Studio Recordings (On Campus)

Jack Vishneski, instructor of MUS 3950.02 Sound Recording Lab, needs small ensembles and solo musicians to play short pieces in Ferguson Hall 215, so his students can practice running a session and using good microphone technique.

Session dates are Tuesday, March 10 and Thursday, March 12, any time between 9 and 11am.

There is no monetary compensation, but musicians are entitled to copies and rights for whatever recordings are made of them. Additional post-production will have to be negotiated on a case-by-base basis.

Musicians for TEDx UMN

TEDx UMN (the organization that enables the University to host TED talks) has an event on Sunday, May 3rd at the McNamara Alumni Center. We are looking for performers to be a part of our presentation.

Unfortunately we cannot compensate anyone for this event because it would be against TEDx UMN's policy as a non-profit organization. Most people decide to present at TEDx so their message or performance can be heard and to gain experience in front of a crowd.

The event does not have a set time yet, but tentatively plan for 12pm.

Contact Jack for more information.
