The Company House announces an Artist In Residence Program - March 2010
Emerging musician, Natasha Peach, completed the first Artist is Resident program at the end of May. She played every second Monday for three months. The Artist in Resident program is an opportunity for musicians to hone their craft in a live environment. Musicians can tweak old songs and test new ones, as well as collaborate on stage with other musicians or pretty much anything they feel will help them become better performers. One of Natasha’s goals was to become more comfortable on stage. “It seems like with each passing performance I become more and more me. There really has been such a huge transformation that has happened inside of me since the beginning the program.”
The Artist in Residence Program will start up again in August. If you are interested in becoming The Company House Artist in Resident, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
