An opportunity for your music group (band, ensemble, combo, etc) to rehearse informally on a concert hall stage for free with your own equipment
An opportunity for the public to hear live music at no charge
Key Features for Music Groups
We provide up to 3 hours rehearsal time onstage, plus an additional 30 minutes each for setup and load-out (4 hours total).
The OMR program is free of charge to groups who bring their own sound system.
If desired, we can announce your musical group, website and rehearsal date on our site.
An OMR is truly a rehearsal. There is no pressure to "perform" in the usual manner.
Your group must be a music ensemble with at least two performers. Any combination of instrumentalists and/or vocalists who do not rely on recorded music are eligible. (Karaoke performers and DJ performers are not eligible.)
Your group must be actively seeking opportunities to perform in some manner, whether live (gigs, shows, concerts, etc.) or through recorded works (song downloads, studio sessions, YouTube channel, etc.), or both.
Every OMR is open to the public and all ages are welcome. Therefore, material rehearsed must meet the same content standard as a commercial broadcast radio station - especially regarding profanity and subject matter. In other words, if something would be cut or “bleeped” from the radio, it should likewise be edited out during this rehearsal.
