Good Morning~My name is Rev. Delaine McGhee. I pastor the Grafton UMC in Grafton, Ohio.I write to inquire if there is a student who plays the keyboard and would like to assist on a very short-term bases while our keyboardist recovers from pneumonia. We anticipate her being out of commission until November. The keyboardist would need to be available for praise team rehearsal the first and second Saturday of October (10:00-Noon) as well as each Sunday for worship (10:00am) through the month of October.We have a keyboards that I think is sophisticated but might not be to a trained musician. It has 8,000 musical voices possible.We are willing to negotiate compensation.If you know of a student who would appreciate the experience of playing a keyboard for a small congregation on a short-term bases we would appreciate the contact. There is the possibility that this student may be needed through November.
The Oberlin Community Market is seeking musical talent to provide background music to our weekly Saturday market at Eastwood School. The vibe is very organic, lots of nice people, good food with arts and crafts all around. This is a very good venue to market your talents, meet new people and pass out business cards for future gigs. There is no set time that you need to play, be it 15 minutes or an hour….just come and hang out. A box is provided allowing listeners an opportunity to give you a monetary donation. For sure, you will receive some free food and coffee from the vendors.
