Boise Rock School


Calling all Boise musicians! One of our internal philosophies is "There's nothing we can't do better." While I'm not a fan of double negatives, I will argue that good hold music can improve our days. Team up with Boise Rock School and help us make it so!
CALL TO MUSICIANS - City Hold Music Call

We are partnering with Boise Rock School to seek submissions of music for the City of Boise's telephone hold system (City Hold system) beginning in 2022 and to remain on the system through at least 2024. Up to 10 submissions will be selected.

Musicians may submit existing or newly created original music. Genres may be open, but must be appropriate for all ages; music that is “characteristically Boise” is a plus (as interpreted by the applicant).

Deadline: March 17, 2022, at 5 p.m. (local time)

We can all use some help from friends and that’s exactly what Boise Rock School needs now. The pressures of the rental market have pushed them out of their building and although they’ve found a new place, the organization could use some support from the community to finish the move.

We are hoping to raise another $300,000 to finish Phase 2 (an on-site, professional recording studio) and Phase 3 (an all-ages, student-led music venue) in 2022. Our goal is to provide Treasure Valley youth with a permanent, cultural hub where they can collaborate with peers and use their art as a means of having their voice heard. 🎤🤘🏼
