We want you to perform works that showcase your artistry and provide our audience with a rich, varied mix of music each season. Our concerts are informal, and we encourage artists to interact with the audience during and after the performance.

We generally book our concerts one to two years in advance. Concert programs need to be finalized at least three months ahead of the performance date. Please plan to perform at least 60 minutes of music.

Our standard performance fees are $500 for piano soloists and $400 per artist for duos and trios. In addition, we provide local ground transportation, meals, and lodging at the venue (note: we have cats).

If this opportunity interests you, please email us and introduce yourself. We’ll get back to you after we have reviewed your information.

NOTE: No booking agents, please. We prefer to work directly with artists.
