Jockey Club “Project Silver”– Intergenerational Arts Project “Every Note Counts”: Seeking Volunteer Musicians
Performance period: July – November 2021
Online recruitment and interviews: Now until 15 August 2021
If you are a musician or singer keen to share your passion for music with the community, join us and support our volunteer programme Every Note Counts!
Part of our Jockey Club “Project Silver” Intergenerational Arts Project, Every Note Counts shares the pleasure of music and companionship with elderly citizens by taking music performances into community centres or the homes of those unable to attend music performances independently.
We are now seeking volunteer musicians – soloists or groups of two to four – to present 15 to 20-minute performances for the elderly. Don’t miss this opportunity to make a difference and share the joy of music!
Online interviews with volunteers will be conducted until the programme reaches maximum capacity. Selected soloists or groups will be assigned between one and three visits during the performance period. Apply now and share your passion for music with the elderly!
- Participants are required to bring their own instruments and equipment, including music stands.
- Due to space limitations in homes and centres, only groups of four or less and acoustic or unplugged portable instruments can be accommodated.
- Most visiting sessions take place during weekdays and Saturday mornings or afternoons. If you have work commitments, please let us know in your application whether you are able to take time off on weekdays.
- Volunteers are responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from each visit.
- All volunteers must obtain COVID-19 test results before each visit if required by the community centre. Further details will be provided after volunteers are on board.
- Volunteers are responsible for arranging their own rehearsals. HKYAF will also provide two music performance training sessions before each visit.
To apply, please complete the online application form and submit a one to three-minute video* of your own / your group’s music performance by 15 August 2021.
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to an online interview to help us get to know each other.
