As a professional working musician for nearly 20 years (nine full-time in New York City), I’ve developed a wide and diverse network of colleagues who perform in every style and format imaginable. As a contractor, my job is to find musicians who are the right fit for your needs and organize every step of the process, from hiring to negotiating wages to scheduling rehearsals to the performance itself. Whether it’s a jazz trio for a dinner party, a string quartet for a wedding, musicians for a Broadway show, or traditional Japanese instrumentalists, I can find the right players to fit. I’ve contracted musicians for many clients including Lincoln Center, and various performers at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
My strong organizational skills, love for Excel spreadsheets, and desire to advocate for the fair and accurate implementation of contracts, makes me an ideal in-house contractor for an Off-Broadway or Broadway show. The in-house contractor is a performing musician who also takes on a partially managerial role, submitting weekly orchestra payroll, serving as a liaison between the orchestra and management (keeping both management and musicians accountable to contract), facilitating performance and substitute schedules, and communicating important information to orchestra members.
