St. Cecilia Music Center Will be ArtPrize Music Hub Again for 2013
St. Cecilia Music Center will continue its role as the music hub during ArtPrize 2013 and will once again award $10,000 in prize money specifically to musical entries.
St. Cecilia Music Center will be presenting five $2,000 awards in the categories of pop/electronic, rock/blues, folk/country, jazz and classical. The winners will be chosen by the popular vote on the ArtPrize website.
For complete information for artists about the musical competition, contact St. Cecilia at firstname.lastname@example.org
New this year will be the addition of official ArtPrize “busking stations” in five different locations throughout Grand Rapids during the first two weeks of the event. SCMC will schedule entered musicians for these various performance areas where they may perform live for the public at large. Musicians may display their voting number and perform multiple times if desired, based on time availability. Non-ArtPrize performances will not be permitted at these sites. There will also be performance opportunities at St. Cecilia Music Center and on Wood TV 8.
Listening stations will be available during the entire three weeks of ArtPrize (September 18-October 6) featuring musical entries and music will be featured on the ArtPrize website.
The grand prize given by ArtPrize is $200,000 and all music will be eligible for the performance/time-based juried award of $20,000.
