Apply to appear in the Selected Artists guide

Each year the Making Music Selected Artists Panel selects a number of established professional musicians and ensembles for inclusion in Making Music's guide, Selected Artists.

Special fees are negotiated in each case for Making Music members, to whom the brochure is circulated in May, providing exposure and bookings to professional artists at affordable rates for amateur music groups.

Apply for inclusion in the next issue

Making Music's Selected Artists Panel (SAP) is now accepting applications for the 2018 Selected Artists guide. The guide will be sent to all Making Music member groups by post next May and will also displayed on the Making Music website.

Application forms must be returned to artists.sa@makingmusic.org.uk by 30 September 2017 at the latest, so that we can arrange to assess artists. No late entries will be considered.

After making enquiries and considering concert reports and any available recordings on SoundCloud and YouTube, the Panel will select the final list of around 20 artists and ensembles in March. We will inform you of selection, or otherwise, as soon after this as possible. Invitations to advertise in the brochure will be sent out later to all on our mailing list.

Please note: artists who have appeared as Selected Artists in either of the last two guides are not eligible to apply this year (unless applying as part of a different ensemble to that previously featured).

More details are available in the application guidelines.
