Hire a Colburn Performer

The Colburn School offers a referral service for individuals, organizations, and businesses who would like to hire Colburn Conservatory of Music students to perform.

We are currently not accepting any gig requests for students. We will re-open the form for gig requests when the School resumes full operations.

Gig Referral Process

  1. Fill out the gig request form.
  2. The opportunity will be posted to students and local alumni.
  3. If a student or student group is available to perform, they will reach out to you directly to finalize the proposed performance. (Note: Arrangements are made directly with the student, who can offer advice on musical selections, and will advise on fees and rates, typically between $75–100 per hour, per student.)
  4. Students arrive on day of event and perform.
  5. The Colburn team will follow up with a simple survey for quality assurance.

The Colburn School cannot guarantee that a request be filled, as placement is based on student availability, transportation, etc. Please note that student availability during the months of May, June, and July is especially limited.
