HTMA is looking for a new Performance Chair for 2021

 

 

HTMA is looking for a new Performance Chair for 2021. Knowledge of traditional music and a familiarity with regional traditional musicians is preferred. This new board member will work within a budget to book bands for approximately 7 Coffeehouses from March 2021 through October 2021. The performance chair continues as primary contact between HTMA and scheduled bands. Makes arrangement for gathering of promotional materials so other HTMA committees can promote each band. Makes arrangement for facilitating communication between the band and tech operations. Prepares a spreadsheet report for HTMA Board of Directors including: bands, relevant dates, contact information, and budget. Qualifications include advance-planning skills, open time in your personal schedule each month, and most importantly ability to develop contacts within the regional traditional and folk music scene.

 

Karen Newsum said, “I would definitely like to comment on my highlight as the performance chair…getting to meet and be around super talented folks and then schedule them for our local audience to enjoy!” So if you: like seeing a happy receptive audience, like interfacing with regional and national talent, enjoy sharing folk and traditional music with North Alabamians, then you should contact a board member to discuss being Performance Chair.
