Groupmuse performers are trained classical musicians bringing their art form back to the original chamber: the home.

As an approved musician, you’ll be able to see all posted events in all of our active cities.
Offers include an arrangement and program. Approved musicians may bring groups with anyone in them, approved or not.
If there are multiple offers on a single event, the Groupmuse team picks the performers. We match ensemble size to event capacity, ensure equal performance opportunities for different players, and rotate different groups and styles to the same host.
We’ll share your contact info with your host, and make sure you have theirs, to coordinate as needed.
Groupmuse performances aren’t like concert hall performances. People sit on the floor, clap between movements, and ask questions after the show. Take your time, talk about your craft, and help new listeners have a friendly and inviting first-experience with classical music!
Your host is responsible for making sure that everyone in attendance pays the musicians with cash in the contribution bowl, or online through Groupmuse. It’s always easier to raise money for someone else than yourself!
Groupmuses feature short, 45-minute programs that are always at least 50% traditional classical repertoire. Other than that, design your own programs and include whatever you want to play!
At the show, each audience member pays the musicians at least $10 in cash or online (which we’ll send to you without taking a cut). Groupmuse only keeps the $3 reservation fee for reserving a spot at a show.
We're committed to fair pay for musicians and accessibility for audiences, and we try to be as transparent about it as possible - read more here.
Groupmuses are just as much about community building as they are about music. So please, come early, stay late, hang out, make friends, and enjoy yourself!
