[ARTwalk Needs Musicians]
Musicians at ARTwalk 2004.
ARTwalk Needs Musicians
by Wendy Mills
Published Apr 25, 2005

Rochester's outdoor art trail needs musicians for upcoming events.

ARTwalk is inviting music acts of all kinds to apply to play along University Avenue every Saturday this summer. Any individual, band, vocal group or other music ensemble is welcome to apply to play.

Musicians are asked to fill out an application and submit a performance tape. A committee of residents, artists and business owners will make the final selections. More than twenty musical acts are needed.

"By having music on the streets on Saturday afternoons, it is just one reason for people to get out and stretch their legs and explore this great neighborhood and all the assets we have here in the city,” said Douglass Rice, ARTwalk executive director.

The deadline to apply is May 13. Entries will be judged based on artistic merit, creativity and flexibility with regard to weather. You can contact ARTwalk at (585) 234-6670. Applications can be found at the ARTwalk website.

Other events include the Muse-a-Thon fundraiser June 11 and ARTwalk Alive on Sept. 18.
