"Scintillating"Performance

Help share the gift; event planning or Festival applications, forming a non-profit group, creating materials; CD & DVD packaging, word of mouth promotion of events. It's all needed and appreciated.

 

The event & pre-event needs people;

  • to haul props, equipment; staging, lighting, amplification, set it up & test it

  • run a video camera

  • documentation; collecting attendee names and contact information

  • sell CD's & DVD's 

  • ticket taking

  • Disk manufacturing & packaging

  • order processing

  • labeling & shipping

  • updating Web sites

  • attending to fan mail

  • assembling promotional materials

  • notifying & sending promitions to the news media

  • photos, videos

 

The artist has to do all that plus pay normal day to day bills which takes a regular job and yes, they have to practice and prepare to be able to dazzle on a moments notice and be worthy of standing on stage in front of an audience filled with high expectations.

 

Yes, an artist pursues thier craft because they are driven by the love of doing it, but public presentation is sharing a gift..

Did you know that it often costs the musician to play a concert?  That's why many soloists performing with orchestras on television or the concert stage are sponsored. 

 

To fill the hall people have to know about the event which means advertising and that is very expensive. To rent the hall is very expensive, people to staff the event, ticket sales, it all takes funding. 

 

Concert quality instruments are rarely owned by the musician any more, they have a benefactor that loans it to them. If you love fine music this is your opportunity to provide assistance to ensure the continuation of great art.  It all starts with an idea, a house party of friends, a special guest and good cause.

"Scintillating"Performance

"Scintillating" quote from Ephran Younger, VP Carmel Classic Guitar Festival

HOST A
HOUSE PARTY
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
MAKE A 
DONATION

At the previous turn of the century, artists such as Arthur Rubinstein lived by virtue of friends and sponsors and were not expected to go make a living, they were a public treasure.  When Rubinstein came to America he had a whole new reality to come to terms with and he had to generate income in order to pursue his art. ref: "My Younger Years" by Arthur Rubinstein.
