Perform at The Grand while you can!
If you’ve ever dreamed of performing on stage at The Grand 1894 Opera House – this is your chance! As part of Galveston Island’s Galveston Cares weekend, The Grand is opening its doors (and the stage) for an open mic event from Noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 30, 2017.
Ready to perform on stage? Here’s what we need from you:
Please email [email protected] if you plan to participate in the Open Mic event. Please include your name, contact information, type of performance (singing, playing an instrument, dancing, etc…) and any specific time requests during the Noon-4pm time period. (In case you have to perform on your lunch break!) We want to make sure your debut on stage is Grand!
Singers, instrumentalists, dancers, poets and more are invited to perform for up to 7 minutes on stage. The Grand’s nine-foot Steinway piano will be available as well as one microphone. Music groups are welcomed but must play acoustically – no speakers, plug-ins or monitors will be accepted.
Bring your talent and earn bragging rights to “appearing on stage at The Grand!”
Don’t feel like performing? Join us as part of the audience to see and hear the stars of the future!
