Performers for Acker Night – 2021 Information
December 10, 2021 – 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Dear Musicians – first let me say how much we appreciate all of you who have participated in Acker Night throughout the years! Your generosity has allowed us to offer many private-lesson scholarships to our local youth, as well as donate funds to each school district in the area specifically for their music programs.
If you are interested in donating your time to perform, you may use the attached form to sign up. It is important that you fill in all the information to best help us make a good match with a downtown business. If you are available to play outdoors, please be sure to indicate that as well.
Some of you have an enjoyable history with a particular business. If that is the case, please list them as a preference on the comment line.
We do allow part time participation; however, unless you have a match with another part-timer, it is a difficult match to fulfill. We take those requests into consideration after fulltime participants have been placed. Also a fact – about 75% requesting half want “first half.” Businesses make a donation for 3 hours of music to be offered in their space so that is a big deciding factor when the Committee gets together to create matches. If you do feel you need to limit your performance time to 1 ½ hours, being flexible with “either half” will help us place you.
Another thing to keep in mind is that many downtown businesses are only able to host small groups.
Again, thank you for your interest in volunteering for this unique event!
The Acker Committee
