This year marks the 8th annual Street Music Week in Appleton. Over the years, this event has brought together hundreds of musicians who have donated their time to play along College Avenue in Downtown Appleton to raise funds and awareness for Feeding America of Eastern Wisconsin. This event has been a success because of the musicians, volunteers and donors! This year, we did postpone the event from its normal June programming to August and based on the current conditions surrounding us, we need to make this a Virtual program.
We are doing a call for musicians who would be willing to donate their time to perform Live at Heid Music Appleton and be streamed to a virtual audience to help support funds for Street Music Week/Feeding America. All music must be original during this live streaming time and we request that the group use their own equipment except that Heid Music can provide a piano and moderate amplification. Also, we would work to respect all social distancing guidelines and there would not be any bystanders to watch the performance in person.
All groups will be shared socially and in digital communications about the event, the group is welcome to have us share about their platforms and ways to follow & support the band, but all funds raised are to support the efforts surrounding the needs with Feeding America.
We are looking for groups to perform between 20 minutes – 50 minutes, so will run with an average of 2-3 groups from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm, Monday August 17 - Friday August 21. If you are interested or have more questions you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org
