Book Club / Q&A   November 2015

Sarah Robinson, author of Clubbing for Classical Musicians, answers our book club readers' questions about the art of producing concerts in alternative venues.

Our first book is Clubbing for Classical Musicians: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Working in Alternative Venues by Sarah Robinson. Robinson is a founding member of Helix Collective, a Los Angeles-based band that performs a high-energy, out-of-the-box mix of world, classical and rock ’n’ roll. Her band is equally at home gigging in nightclubs, performing on the concert stage and serving in residency at the venerable Silver Lake Lounge.

Robinson has served as co-director of Classical Revolution: L.A. since its inception in 2011. The group makes “chamber music cozy comfy in bars, clubs, coffee shops” and more “unexpected hangouts” (L.A. Weekly). Mark Swed of the Los Angeles Times called it an “addictive new series,” that can make chamber music “startlingly subversive.”

Clubbing for Classical Musicians is a comprehensive and easy-to-use guide for successful alternative-venue performances. The book details how to choose a space as well as design, market and fund an extraordinary show. Included are examples of musicians who have launched and advanced their careers through their work in alternative venues.
