Performers sought for new downtown St. Charles initiative


Are you a budding songwriter? Artist? Juggler? Musician? The Downtown St. Charles Partnership is looking for performers to take part in its new program called STC Live!

The purpose of this new program is to help create activity by coordinating live, free entertainment in downtown businesses. The Partnership is seeking artists, musicians and entertainers of different disciplines who have an interest in showcasing their talents to support the downtown.

"We want this program to promote our businesses, encourage people to explore all that our downtown offers, and expose the many talents of people in our community," says Lynne Schwartz, executive director of the Downtown St. Charles Partnership.

The Partnership will pair selected talent with an appropriate business. STC Live! will take place Wednesday and Friday evenings beginning Wednesday, June 12, continuing through early fall.

For consideration to be an integral part of STC Live!, interested parties should submit the following via email to spiner@downtownstcharles.org: contact name, name of act, phone, and email and a short description of type and style of entertainment.

They also should submit at least two of the following: demo and/or examples of past work; performance resume; three professional references; and website with example of work, testimonials, etc.

The STC Live! Committee will review information submitted by interested performers and begin arranging appropriate talent with interested businesses. Performers will have their information listed on the Partnership's website; performers will receive no pay, but they will receive publicity and promotion.

To help generate interest and excitement for the business and its patrons, the performing entity must present a professional, family-friendly performance, including appropriate language and attire.

For details, call the Downtown St. Charles Partnership at (630) 443-3967 or visit www.downtownstcharles.org.
