The Gig Referral Service aims to provide Oberlin students with freelance performance opportunities, as well as a chance to help students develop professional and career skills. The office facilitates the hiring of talented student musicians by allowing clients to post information about performance opportunities through the office. The service also aims to provide community members with quality musicians at a competitive cost. Typical gig opportunities arranged through the office include weddings or receptions, corporate functions, and “atmosphere” entertainment. The Gig Referral Service does not post full time job openings or coordinate private lessons. Students who are interested in participating should visit Robertson 129, questions can be directed to email@example.com.
