Background

Music in Place (www.musicinplace.orgwas recently established by a core group of Music Educators – Music/Video Techies, Legal, Finance, and Business Professionals – who are also accomplished musicians –  to provide assistance to our suddenly displaced and struggling Bay Area Musicians Community.  We have launched this philanthropic endeavor to benefit the diverse community of working musicians in the Bay Area.  Music in Place is a newly formed organization under the 501(C)(3) tax exempt status of the Sonoma County Philharmonic Orchestra (www.socophil.org).  Our mission is to establish a visible and sustainable Bay Area Professional Musicians Network that stimulates opportunities for virtual collective creativity, collaboration, performance, and audiences – moving musical performance to the digital world.

We aim to:

  • Engage musicians, composers, production professionals, and the community
  • Provide training and technical support – how to move from analog to digital performing venues
  • Design and produce original music and video works
  • Manage digital hosting and distribution on Websites and online platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Twitter, Instagram
  • Create new models for generating financial support
  • Award immediate grants to participating musicians to help them put food on the table

Time is of the essence as the need to act is immediate. Our hope is that music lovers will visit us on our Website, on Facebook and on YouTube to learn about who we are, and what we are doing, We hope that a broad array of audiences will enjoy new music and video works made by these local musicians. We want to ask our community to lend their support to enable Music in Place to build momentum and make a positive impact on as many talented professional musicians as possible.
