Join the Musicians Plaza Backstage Chat

The Plaza is a welcoming meeting place for all our Geni musicians, where they may be inspired by fellow musicians of different stripes to share, cross over, and find ways to work in other genres they may not previously have experienced. Yo-Yo Ma doing an album with Bobby McFerrin, the Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett collaborations...Lennon, McCartney, Harrison compositions being played by philharmonic orchestras, came to mind and were inspirations.

Visually, this working Musicians Plaza embraces the same eclectic mix, and is reflected in our blend of classical, stylized and contemporary design elements.

Here you can find mutual interests, kindred spirits, colleagues exchanging thoughts and ideas, related projects, collaborate etc. Unite on this Plaza to expand your Musical Social Horizon here on Geni!

Either a Personal Project Page here on Geni or an external personal website needed.

For table reservations (for Musicians ONLY!) and further details on how to participate in this Plaza, please contact project manager.
