Welcome to the Los Angeles County Arts Commission's Musicians Roster
In our continuing effort to make the arts accessible to Los Angeles County, the Arts Commission is pleased to administer this comprehensive database of performers.
How it works
The Roster is searchable by key word, by name of artist, and by music style. Some music styles are broken into subcategories to better distinguish the nuances of a music genre. For instance, the jazz section includes subcategories such as smooth jazz, Latin jazz, etc.
Who uses the Roster
Producing organizations applying to present Free Concerts in Public Sites are required to select performers from the Musicians Roster. The Roster is also a resource for the community at-large to survey the rich diverse pool of talent available to them in Los Angeles County.
How it happens
Los Angeles County-based musicians apply for Roster consideration once a year. Each summer a panel of experienced and respected professionals associated with Los Angeles County music and/or presenting communities convenes to evaluate Roster applicants. Selection criteria is based on enhancing artistic excellence and cultural diversity, and the ability to work well and cooperatively with other organizations as representatives of this program.
Applications for the Musicians Roster are currently available. Los Angeles County-based music ensembles are encouraged to apply. Use the links below to access the program guidelines and the online application. Applications must be completed electronically and are due on Wednesday, September 25 at 11:00 p.m. Accepted ensembles will be listed on the Musicians Roster from January 2014 through December 2017.
