Performer(s) for Holiday Sale (On Campus)

The Weisman Art Museum Shop hosts an annual Holiday Sale/Event and would love to have some students perform. We have 10 local artists/vendors set up, in addition to the sale in our store. We offer light refreshments and would love to have a small group perform holiday/festive music.

The event date is Wednesday, December 3rd from 4-6pm.

Unfortunately we do not have a budget for entertainment but it's a great performance opportunity, as we get several hundred visitors from around campus, as well as museum members/supporters.

Volunteer with Dueling Pianos

For my Strategic Communication Campaigns class, my group and I are developing a campaign for a bar called Shout! House, which is in downtown Minneapolis. It is a dueling pianos bar known for its unique atmosphere and musical engagement.

We were wondering if a student or student(s) from the School of Music could play the pianos, or have some other sort of participation between the School of Music and Shout! House Dueling Pianos.

This is a volunteer opportunity for current student musicians.

Percussionist for Theater Production (On Campus)

Looking for a percussionist to create original accompaniment and aid in a production of Shakespeare's Macbeth on Halloween. It's going to be a dark, up close, dangerous, and condensed version of the play that would be greatly accented by a percussive background. Especially hand drums and the like.

Unfortunately I cannot pay you for this because the funding is coming through a University grant and they have rules about paying students. I will buy you food and drink at times though! I'm looking for someone who wants to have some fun in a different context.

Relatively low time commitment.
