Talent Needed|

Each week, Alex Teitz provides a “Lead Sheet” for local artists and musicians in the Colorado community. He takes the time to update each “request for talent” and passes it along to anyone who wants to take the time to look into such opportunities. Here are some of his offerings. You can find more on his website at http://www.femmusic.com

For the next 8 weeks there won’t be any events. For all those in need I’m collecting links of emergency grants, funds, anything for artists out of work. Please e-mail me if you know of ones to add.
