GRAND RAPIDS, MI: Every year, Dance in the Annex (DITA) invites local composers, musicians and song-writers to submit original pieces of music for TRIP THE LIGHT. In its fifth year, TRIP THE LIGHT takes place at Wealthy Theatre on May 10, 2014.
Music can be from any time period and genre, created in West Michigan. If music is chosen, the musician(s) will perform it live during the event. Musicians will work closely with choreographers and must be open for collaboration. Musicians who have performed in previous Trip The Light events are welcome to submit. Submission deadline is January 19th.
A technical and dress rehearsal will take place the weekend before the weekend of performances (May 4th). The show will be video-taped and photographed. Performance pay will again be divided in equal shares and dependent on sponsorship and profits from the shows.
Music may be submitted digitally by email to firstname.lastname@example.org as a link to download, an attached file or dropped off on disc at Wealthy Theatre between 2-7pm weekdays. Musicians are encouraged to submit a maximum of three songs, selecting those that seem to apply best – and could be performed live to great effect.
Any questions about Trip can be sent to email@example.com.
