I have a question for anyone who may have an answer. Prerecorded Music. I have been directing some shows for a group that gives all profits to charity. Musicians are expensive. Since we try to donate as much money as possible to The American Cancer Society, I am trying to save dollars where I can. This year, we are producing ONCE UPON A MATTRESS. Now, the question is, if I pay rental for the complete instrumental parts, is it unethical to have prerecorded music? I am not "ripping off" the production company because I have paid the rental. Is there somewhere you can get prerecorded music? If anyone has thoughts or ideas, please let me know.
