Mics Open Once Again at Hillside

la-barre-and-other-musicians-bouys-croppedThe candles in are being lit and the Roland rolled out of storage for the resumption of Early Music Open Mic Night in the East Bay. This event is held on the fourth Wednesday of each month from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. at the Hillside Community Church, 1422 Navellier Street, El Cerrito. This is your opportunity to perform early music in a friendly cabaret style setting. Your ensemble and you have practiced long enough in solitude and obscurity! Come into the limelight! Instrumentalists, singers, soloists, groups, students, youngsters, professionals — all are welcome!

The first open mic night of the season is this Wednesday, September 27th. Performers can send an email to earlymusicopenmic@gmail.com to sign up. Time slots will be up to 15 minutes, and there will be six time slots per night. A Roland state of the art harpsichord/organ will be available on site as well as a regular piano. Food and drinks will be provided.

So come on! Polish up your piece! Get it out there to share with all of us! A donations basket will be prominently placed to cover the costs of the venue rental and refreshments. Bring your own music stand and bring a stand light if you need it.

Looking forward to some fabulous music-making!
Sal Blaker, MC
