 Call for Staff Musicians

We're looking for UVM staff musicians to enrich the ambiance of the Third Annual Staff Art Exhibit. Each musician(s) will play a 10-15 minute acoustic set (no microphones or amps) as folks stroll through the Livak Fireplace Lounge at the Davis Center for the Exhibit Reception to be held on Tuesday, September 16th from 12 noon – 1pm during Staff Appreciation Week celebrations. We ask that musical groups contain no more than 1-2 musicians, as the intention is to provide background music and not overwhelm the small space.
