Have you been toiling away at your instrument, waiting for your moment to shine? Are you a fan of modern music? Well then, your opportunity is now, as Texas Public Radio and SOLI Chamber Ensemble team up to present the second annual SOLI CONTEMPORARY OPEN MIC NIGHT at Jazz TX, on Monday, November 5!
SOLI will warm up the crowd for you, and then its’s your turn on stage as we listen to the many talented performers that South Texas has to offer.
You can be a part of the evening, as either a solo or ensemble. The only rules are that the music you perform must fit in with a traditional SOLI program. That means your music should be:
- Written within the past 75 years.
- Through-composed (i.e. originally written down, not improvised.)
- Primarily acoustic in nature. Limited amplification.
- Generally falling within the "classical music" category if you were to buy it at the record store. ;)
Additionally, we request that your piece be limited to 5-7 minutes in length (longer pieces require prior approval) to accommodate as many performers as possible. For example, if you have a String Quartet, please play only one movement, not the entire work!
Limited spaces are available – to apply to be a part of the show, please follow this link by October 25, 2018, to signup, and don’t forget to enter a link to a representative performance of your work (does not have to be the specific work you are proposing) on Soundcloud or YouTube etc. We’ll contact selected performers before the event so you’ll have time to get in extra practice!
Then everyone is invited to join your friends and neighbors at SOLI Open Mic. Night at Jazz TX, located at the Pearl. It’ll be a great night of San Antonio displaying its talent. Monday, November 5, 2018 | Jazz TX | 7:30 PM
