Whether using Zoom or another video conferencing platform to host your client’s virtual gathering, the musician will simply access the meeting using the sign-in information provided to them by the host and use audio streaming hardware and software tools to deliver a high-quality 60 to 90-minute* performance for their virtual audience. Through this format, our musicians have the ability to take requests and engage with guests, which allows the guests to enjoy the excitement and human element of live music and events while social distancing from the safety of their own homes.

The process for organizing a Virtual Concert is very similar to booking for live events. First, you must secure a venue – in this case, a video conferencing platform, such as Zoom – where the event will take place.
Next, you may select a musician from our Virtual Entertainment Menu to perform at the event. Then, click “Book This Artist” on the artist’s page or fill out our Booking Inquiry Form for the final steps. Alternatively, you may reach out to a Key Signature representative using the contact form at the bottom of this page for assistance in finding the best fit for your event and budget. Virtual events are new territory for a lot of folks, so we’re here to help provide guidance and answers to any questions you may have.
