Our first round of Sidewalk Serenades was one of the few bright, magical spots of the last two months. At a time when so many are feeling uneasy due to illness, loss of income, or loss of normalcy, a few minutes of live music reminds us that we are better together, connected by music and community. Spring seems to have finally returned, and with it, we want to bring back the moments of musical, communal joy, and help you stay inspired and hopeful while safe at home.
That first round of serenades, which ran for just 10 days, put back over $8,000 into the hands of working Baltimore musicians. It was a model that was embraced by Baltimore and noticed internationally. We have shared the structure with organizations in Philadelphia, Portland (ME), Nashville, Chicago, and New Haven, as well as Holland and China!
We are THRILLED to announce the next round of Sidewalk Serenades. We will be working with the performers directly to ensure additional safety measures and are confident that this series offers a way for you to enjoy safe and magical live music.
Creative Alliance is once again offering you the opportunity to have a short performance of two to three songs delivered to the front of your home (or a friend/loved one’s home) for a small fee.
Performers will come to the confirmed address, text the residence upon arrival and, like a burst of sunlight through these gray skies, share their talents from the sidewalk. The donations from each of these performance events will be shared between the artist and Creative Alliance to help keep the arts alive and thriving in Baltimore!
What if I want to purchase a concert for someone else???
What if I live in an apartment?
What if I would like a performance but just can't afford it at this time?
