The UMF Emery Community Arts Center's Couch Jam Online Summer Concert Series will accept submissions from the public for their virtual concert.

FARMINGTON — The University of Maine at Farmington Emery Community Arts Center invites Maine-based solo-artists and small ensembles to submit a demo video of their work for consideration in its new Couch Jam Online Summer Concert Series.

Emery’s premiere online concert series will feature a diverse range of musical acts and genres, sharing the spirit of Maine’s local music scene through its website and social media. https://wpsites.maine.edu/emerycommunityartscenter/

Concerts will go live online weekly beginning on Friday, July 10 and continue throughout the month of July. Artists selected to participate in the Couch Jam Series will receive an honorarium of $75 (or up to $225 for an ensemble of three people) for a performance video of 3-5 songs (or approximate 20-minute set).

While the UMF campus arts venue remains closed, Emery Community Arts Center strives to continue its role as a space to honor, exhibit, and support the artistic and creative force in the local community and beyond.
