Talent Needed|

Each week, Alex Teitz provides a “Lead Sheet” for local artists and musicians in the Colorado community. You can find more on his website at http://www.femmusic.com Alex has also listed a lot of sites in other states and countries so if you have musician and artist friends outside Colorado, turn them on to Alex’s site. They might find the financial help they need.

Be aware that some of these have deadlines that have passed or they are no longer accepting applications due to the amount they have received.
