    Music. Video. Recording.


    Need that song recorded? Need that video to promote yourself?

    Abbey Arts is opening a call for young, local, talented musicians who want to record their original music in our reverb-washed performance hall.

    We are offering a FREE opportunity to record with our pro-level sound equipment for artists in need between the ages of 18 and 24! Abbey audio and media staff will assist in the recording projects. Younger artists may also apply with a parent or guardian.

    This new program is part of an expansion of our Arts Connect Program which offers free concert tickets to nonprofits, low income families, veterans, and law enforcement. As part of our mission to reduce the barriers to arts experiences, we want to include video and audio recording sessions to feature local talent and help support their creative careers.


    Artist Requirements:

    • original music only
    • acoustic feel (no rock bands at this point please!)

    The Abbey or Homestead are also available to rent out for audio or video projects. The Abbey has been featured in films by directors like Lynn Shelton, and recording or video shoots with artists like Allen Stone, and Kris Orlowski.
    See www.fremontabbey.org/sessions for more information.
