Series kicked off earlier last week with a performance at UMMA by local musician Timothy Monger, of Great Lakes Myth Society fame. There will be future performances from artists in the Series on Friday October 16, at 7pm and November 13, at 7pm at UMMA.
What is this all about? The Ark asks student songwriters at U of M “to submit their original music demo in order to compete for a live performance showcase at the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) and a chance to perform at The Ark.”
There will be a final performance on Friday, December 4 from 7-9pm that will feature all the performers from the October and November shows. They will be performing in-the-round, and the winners of series will be announced.
Demos are due by September 30 for the October show, and October 27 for the November show. Please see The Ark’s website or the flyer for important information regarding all submission guidelines if you plan on entering. If not, see you at UMMA for the performances!
