What is the PMN Round Robin?

This Round Robin sing around event takes place as part of the People's Music Network Virtual Winter Convergence, which takes place January 28-30, 2022.

Members of the People's Music Network may use the registration form on this page to sign up to share a song or a poem in the Round Robin.  This event is an evening of sharing by PMN members where we especially encourage first time members to participate.  All members are invited to sign up to share one song, spoken word, storytelling, or dance piece.  There is a 5 minute time limit for each performer.  There is no set topic.  We simply ask that participating artists relate their performance to PMN's mission of using music, poetry, and other forms of cultural work as catalysts for a just and peaceful world.  

The Round Robin is the quintessential activity of People's Music Network Gatherings.  You can read a brief history of the People's Music Network written by Charlie King and Luci Murphy, which describes the first Round Robin in 1977.   The format of the Round Robin is similar to PMN's online Song and Poetry swaps, which began in March 2020.  But there will be more hosts, more performers, more fanfare, and it will go later than usual. 

Registering and Connecting

Registered performers and audience members will receive an e-mail message containing the Zoom Meeting link.  Performers will receive a specific estimated time slot when they will perform.

Registration Deadline: Tuesday, January 25, 2022 at 5:00 PM (ET)

Eligibility to Perform:

Performers in this Round Robin must:

1)   Be PMN members in good standing.* 

2)   Register using this online form.  (Press "Register" on the left hand menu)

3)   Have a computer or other device with functioning video camera and microphone.

* If you are not a PMN member, you may join here: https://www.peoplesmusic.org/join-PMN

How we Select the Performers

Every PMN member wishing to perform at this event is invited to register and to do so sooner than later.  Selection in the line up, however, is not first-come first-served. We give priority to new PMN members as well as PMN members who have not performed recently in one of our previous online swap events.  PMN holds song swap events regularly.  If the performance time you receive doesn't end up working for you, anticipate more opportunities soon!  Since this is a special Round Robin singing event, we are welcoming in a larger number of performers than we usually do in the space of a single night.  EVERYONE keen to share is invited to please sign up!

Technical Orientation Session: Thursday, January 27, 5:00-7:00 PM

Selected performers will receive an e-mail invitation to a technical orientation session at the time listed above by the morning of the same day.  We will discuss and practice how to get the best sound when sharing music on Zoom.  Each performer will have a chance to sing a verse of a song and then receive feedback on ways to improve the audio quality.  While perfection is not expected, artists new to Zoom are strongly encouraged to attend the tech run through, because doing so will build your confidence in using these tools.  The audio quality that listeners hear of your live performance depends on the equipment you have and how you use it.  Find tips to improve audio quality here.
