Calling All Musicians! Sunday Sounds at the Museum

15 March 2013

Calling all musicians! Sunday sounds at the museum

We are seeking musicians from the Waikato to fill our galleries with music. Waikato Museum in partnership with Hamilton Live Music Trust is launching Sunday Sounds at the Museum, a series of 10 concerts from June 2013 to March 2014.

We are looking for a range of styles and set ups. However, please note this is for Sunday afternoon sessions so acoustic or semi-acoustic is preferred.  For example, you may be a band playing unplugged, a choir, a singer songwriter or cultural group. If you would like to play we would love to hear from you.

Like to know more?

  • Selection will be made by Hamilton Live Music Trust and Waikato Museum from supplied demos. Musicians will be selected on the quality of their music not the quality of their recording.
  • Musicians will need to be able to play a minimum of 40 minutes of music. However, you may apply to perform with several others to share a concert, but please note you would also then need to share the payment.
  • Payment for each concert is $350.00. It will be necessary to fill out a supplier contract and this may include withholding tax.

Interested? Please send us details about yourself including:

Your name and contact details 
Band or stage name if applicable
A short CV of your music career to date. i.e. where and when you have performed previously
A demo CD, DVD/video, MP3 file or a link to a website e.g. You Tube or Vimeo.

Closing date to apply is 1 May 2013 Please email your application to
