New Web Site For Musicians

A new online resource called Music Places has been introduced to serve musicians throughout Queens at www.nycmusicplaces.org. This free, easy to use online resource is designed to help musicians find suitable rehearsal and performance spaces throughout Queens and the rest of New York City.

Music Places is a non-profit organization offering an easy, systematic way for musicians in New York City and beyond to research and locate convenient, affordable rehearsal or performance spaces within the city’s five boroughs. The listings offer a full range of musical styles, genres and performers, including instrumental (solo to orchestra) and vocal (choral and opera) groups.

The site offers a way for facilities with suitable, underused space in Queens and elsewhere in New York, to generate needed income, such as educational and religious institutions, museums and libraries, cultural and community centers.

Music Places saves the user time and money by asking important basic criteria, such as the number of musicians, desired borough and neighborhood, audience capacity, rental rate parameters, etc. Once these choices are entered, a digest of "matches" appears. The user can then look at details for any listed space and contact the facility directly to arrange a site visit or check availability. The Music Places program does not book the spaces.

The scope of the spaces listed in this free service is as broad and varied as the music made in New York. The nearly 600 spaces currently listed include many in Queens: rehearsal/performance space in the Bayside Historical Society’s Grand Ballroom, 2,450 square feet in Queens College’s Colden Auditorium, a 96-seat theatre at Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning, and recording/rehearsal studios for instrumental or vocal groups at Astoria Soundworks.
