What is a Music Concert?

A music concert, also called a show, gig, or recital is a live performance in front of an audience. The performance can either be performed by a single musician or by a musical ensemble, such as an orchestra, choir, or band. Concerts are held in a wide variety of settings; they can be held at private houses, small nightclubs, concert halls, amphitheaters, parks, arenas, and stadiums.

How to Write a Music Concert Proposal

1. Provide Brief Background

The first part of your proposal is where you introduce yourself. Provide relevant details such as your name (if you’re a band or an orchestra or choir, provide its name instead), the type of music you play or perform, and your experience and relevance in the music industry. You can provide more information about you or your group by attaching press articles, interviews, or advertisements that promote and your music. You can also provide some information about your previous concert experiences. Including those information gives the impression that you are established enough in the industry to hold a concert.

2. Explain the Type of Concert You Want to Organize

The next section is where you tell them that you like to hold a concert/s and give the date/s of when it’ll be held. Give them a general idea of what the concert will be like.

3.  Give More Details About the Event

This section is where you elaborate more details about the event. These are the following details you need to include in this section:

  • Title or name of  the concert and the proposal
  • Goals and objectives for doing the concert
  • Target audience and their demographic profile
  • Performers, instrumentalists, background singers, and other types of artists required in the concert
  • Equipment and instruments needed
  • How and where the equipment will be acquired
  • The estimated budget needed for the concert
  • How funding will be acquired

4. Describe Your Promotion Strategies

The last section of the proposal is where you will explain how you will market the concert to make sure people show up in it. Mention your promotional strategies such as handing out using flyers, pinning posters, and sending mail-outs to advertise your event or use social media to make and post sponsored posts, or partner with businesses to help you promote the event. To strongly reinforce your brand and identity, show them logos of your brand that represents you as a music artist.

FAQs

What are the different types of concerts?

Some of the different types of concerts are orchestra concerts, opera, children’s or family concerts, choral music concerts, band concerts, and recitals.

How long is a typical music concert?

On average, concerts last from 90 minutes to two hours with 15-20 minute intervals in between. However, it is up to the artist how long their concert will last; some can last up to three hours especially if the audience asks for an encore.

How much does it cost to organize a concert?

The cost will depend on how big the concert is. For example, the cost of a concert in an arena is estimated to be around $20,000 per night. For smaller venues like clubs, it can cost around $5,000 for a 5-6 hour event, and for concerts held in bars can only cost around $500-$1,000 for an evening.

Once you’re done drafting your proposal, review your proposal to check if you missed any important information and revise any mistakes you discovered in your proposal. If you think your proposal is ready for submission, discuss it with potential sponsors and concert venue owners. Make sure your proposal is flexible enough to be revised when negotiations are made.
