Hiring VCM Performers
Our students and faculty love to get out into the community and perform. Through the ‘On The Road’ initiative, we can arrange to have some of our talented students and ensembles play at your next special event. We bring music to schools, nursing homes, garden parties, grand openings, corporate parties, birthdays, weddings and events of all description.
Our role is to provide a matching service between people wanting to hire musicians for events and our students and faculty. We are not a booking or employment agency. We do this as a ‘Conservatory Advantage’ for our students and a benefit to the community. We expect hosts hiring musicians to follow all relevant contracting and employment legislation and best practices.
Effective January 2014 – VCM will be charging a $35 connection fee for our match-making service for Performance Requests. This $35 fee will help cover some of the administrative time required to provide this service. Please pay by phoning into the reception desk with your credit card, or visit in person to pay by cash or debit. The fee must be paid before we launch into action on your behalf. If we are unable to recommend a student performer for the event requested, the fee will be refunded.
To find out what we expect of you as hosts/contractors of these musicians and of our student ambassadors, please see
