Event description

Description

I am pleased to host a Sunday Lounge Session as part of the Community Music Project (CMP) and would like to welcome you to our home. I play violin and viola and come from a small-ish town where community music was quite common. Sydney is full of musical potential for this sort of environment, but it gets lost in all the noise.

The CMP encourages musicans and singers to share their passion for music with others. The CMP's vision is to create a movement of community music sharing and unlock the collective talents of musicians and singers across Australia.

At each session, you will get a chance to perform in a relaxed and informal environment. It's also a great opportunity to meet and listen to other like-minded musicians perform from your local area. This session will be hosted by community musician Ian, in his cozy lounge room which fits about 12 people.

FAQs

What standard of music do I need to be?

The purpose of the CMP is to encourage people to share music with each other. We are open to all levels of experience, we only require that you are willing to participate in sharing your musical talents with others!

What do I play?

Come prepared with one or two short pieces (up to 5 minutes each) that you enjoy playing - the genre is completley up to you. At previous sessions, we have had a mixture of Classical, Folk, Pop, Indie, Jazz and Musical Theatre.

What can I expect?

Feel free to visit/follow us on Instagram to see photos and videos of our previous Lounge Sessions: https://www.instagram.com/community_musicproject/

Can I bring others?

We know it can be a bit daunting performing in front of others and so we encourage people to come with a musical partner. Duo's are prefered given the size of our lounge room however we would ask that you both register so we can keep track of numbers.

Why are the sessions held in your lounge room?

We love filling our house with live music and wanted to open our space up to the community. As the project continues to grow, we envisage other musicians hosting their own sessions in their homes or at other venues. For more information about hosting, visit our website: https://www.communitymusicproject.net/

What can I bring into the event?

All you need to bring is yourself and your instrument/voice. We'll get in touch with you 1 week before the event with some further detils and to confirm your attendence.

What musical facilities are available?

We have a digital piano, music stand and wi-fi for you to use. Please bring along any other equipment you may need.

Do I have to pay?

The event is free. We like to provide some wine and cheese to share at the end of each session. We would appreciate if you bought a plate or beverage to share.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Our place is a very short walk from Redfern Train Station. There is usually some on-street parking available, but it is limited. We will send you our street address around 1 week prior to our session so you can plan your visit.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

If you would like to contact me, it's best to email the CMP at communitymusicp@gmail.com
