Third Annual Florida LISTENING ROOM FESTIVAL
Statewide, April 1-7, 2014
St. Petersburg, FL — More than 100 concerts and performances are being scheduled for Florida’s Third Annual Listening Room Festival, April 1-7, 2014. The week-long festival is a state-wide celebration of house concerts – private acoustic performances in the living rooms of music fans.
Listening Room Festival provides free tools for music fans to host personalized concerts in their homes, offices, clubhouses, and other unique settings for live music. This year’s festival will also launch OfficeConcerts.com and expand the number of charitable performances by the featured acts.
“House concerts have been bringing communities and neighborhoods together for decades. What better way to enjoy live music than in a cozy living room with good friends?” said Fran Snyder, Listening Room Festival founder. “Now we’re connecting these personal and remarkable experiences with worthwhile causes, in association with the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance and bay area arts organizations.”
The festival’s high point will be the St. Petersburg showcase at The Palladium on Sunday, April 6th. Festival hosts, charities, and fans will gather to hear six featured performers selected from a professional community of 350 worldwide artists.

Rebecca Loebe, TX – featured on NBC’s The Voice
