How musicians are matched for your groupmuse
You’ve got two options to find musicians that are a good fit for your groupmuse:
- Let the music come to you! Once it’s approved, musicians will begin offering to play at your groupmuse, and we’ll do our best to match an offer that fits your groupmuse. We don't always have a huge amount of options, but know that our biggest concern is matching crowd size to ensemble size. We won't send a string quartet to a concert for 12, nor a soloist to an audience of 50. We also consider a player's performance history, and the host's hosting history.
- Search for what you love, at groupmuse.com/musicians (you'll need an approved host account). Browse through musicians our directory of approved musicians, and message anyone you’d like to play at your groupmuse. Once you’ve agreed on a date and time with someone, put their name in when creating your event, or if you’ve already created the groupmuse, let us know at [email protected].
Once your groupmuse is matched with musicians, it’s officially on! Your friends and community members will be RSVPing soon.
Keep in mind that at groupmuses, musician choose their own programs. It's important to our project that each groupmuse is an opportunity for artistic expression for the performers. They often have pieces they are working on, or looking to explore more, so we ask that hosts do not make specific program requests of matched musicians.
Finally, make sure you get in touch with your musicians before the day of your groupmuse, so you can speak with them about any special preferences or requests either of you might have. The more you coordinate with the musicians, the better the performance will go.
