Our commitment to live music doesn’t end after the July festival. Our annual Spring Showcase event, Rendezvous in the Park features six local/regional bands in a night celebrating music at the Kenworthy Theatre in downtown Moscow.
Three of the Showcase bands are selected as opening acts for our summer music and arts festival, held annually on the third weekend of July in East City Park. Two of the bands are chosen by audience vote, while the third is selected by the Rendezvous Board. Showcase also serves as a fundraiser for our summer festival, and the bands are encouraged to invite their fanbase to enjoy the show.
Showcase offers bands the chance to work with a professional sound crew, both at the spring event and on the main stage in the summer. While the Showcase performance is an unpaid gig (opening bands receive a $150 stipend for the July performance), it is an opportunity for bands to expose a wider audience base to their music.
