CALL TO MUSICIANS
Musicians are invited to register for the 5th Annual RiverArts Music Tour. Last year's tour included more than 250 musicians, performing 120 performances at 36 venues. Almost 3,000 people attended this free celebration of music in the Rivertowns. To view last year’s website and a video promo of the event, click here.
We are hoping you will join us this year. You can register to give one or more 40 minute performances starting on the hour from 12:00 to 11:00 PM- in living rooms, on porches, back lawns, cafes and restaurants, places of worship, flatbed trucks, your living room, or… _________________________________ [you fill in the blank]. If you don’t have a place to perform, we will do our best to find a location for you. We hope that the aggregate effect of this superabundance of music continues to hold sway in people's consciousness for weeks and weeks after the event. Register Here.
All genres of music will be represented. Folk, rock, classical, jazz, country, world, alternative, cabaret, etc. etc. We encourage you to consider playing more than once, so people who want to hear you have more than one opportunity to do so. We will advertise widely, and, as last year, publish 16,000 copies of a brochure/map. These brochures will be stuffed into an issue of the Rivertowns Enterprise and the Scarsdale Inquirer, mailed to 1500 homes, and distributed widely throughout our Villages. All musicians performing will be listed, with contact info about you and your group, along with a schedule. And, as last year, there will be a separate web site for this event in which each performer will have his or her own page. [see last year’s website, still live, here: studiotour.riverarts.org] As last year, the Music Tour will be included as a Metro North "Getaway" event, and there will be posters displayed prominently at every Metro North station in the system.
This event had no precedent in our area until we began it three years ago. We had attendance of about 3,000. Thank you in advance for the role you will play to make this Fifth Annual Multi-Village Musical Celebration a great success!
