The Ark at UMMA

Friday, October 7, 8–10 p.m.

The Ark at UMMA invites student songwriters from the University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, Washtenaw Community College, and Concordia University to submit their original music demos in order to compete for a live performance at UMMA and a chance to perform at The Ark. This student songwriter series is designed to create opportunities for students in the community to have their music heard, learn about promoting their music, and experience important aspects of the music business firsthand.

Three performance showcases--on Friday, October 7, Friday, October 21 and Friday, November 4--will feature the best of the student songwriters selected by The Ark staff from contest submissions. The final performance on Friday, December 9 will feature all performers from the October and November showcases and will culminate in the announcement of the winner of the series. The winning singer-songwriter will play an opening performance at The Ark.
