Live Music Now is recruiting musicians in the North East & Yorkshire

LMN are looking for emerging professional musicians and ensembles in any musical style to join them to give paid performances in special schools, day centres, residential care homes and many other settings.

To find out more about LMN, how they provide work for musicians, and how to apply to join the scheme, come along to one of their presentations, with a performance by current LMN musicians Katie’s Allsorts, at their Open Evening. Leader.

LMN Open Evening 
Wednesday 30th January 2013 4pm – 7.30pm The Venue, 
Leeds College of Music 
Presentation 1: 4pm – 5pm 
Presentation 2: 6pm – 7pm

As well as the two presentations LMN Staff and Musicians will be available throughout the evening to talk to anyone who is interested in dropping by.

What do we mean by emerging professional performer?
You need to be just starting out on your career in the UK, so the majority of our musicians are recent graduates, or have come through other, non-formal education routes but are just beginning to get professional bookings.

LMN is suitable for musicians who want to develop skills and leadership as part of a performing career, but who also have a genuine interest in giving performances for people who live or work in places where live performance is rarely a part of their daily life.

Each year Live Music Now arranges over 2,000 performances and workshops throughout the UK, as well as providing ongoing training for our musicians in all aspects of professional development.

 The next opportunity to audition for LMN is on 20th March, and applications must be received by 11th February.
