The artists being referred are students earning music degrees at LSU, renowned for the quality and depth of its performance programs and have been vetted by the LSU faculty.

The LSU College of Music & Dramatic Arts Hire-a-Musician service connects those looking for musicians for an event with available student musicians. Once a musician has been identified for your event, you will be contacted by the musician and the LSU CMDA's involvement is typically completed. The terms and conditions of the performance are negotiated and payment transactions are completed directly between you and the musician (or group representative). Additionally, the LSU CMDA cannot guarantee that musicians will be available or willing to perform for your event. If you have any questions, please include those in the additional details section above.
