About ONCE Somerville

ONCE Sound Stage is an opportunity to grow our relationships with our community as we offer an additional resource for live streaming and/or pre-recorded events for both artists and individuals in need of space for presentation. ONCE Somerville offers an ideal location. With its large ballroom (capacity of 411) and spacious stage, it is a perfect room for safely distancing while recording. ONCE also offers an excellent sound system, complete with everything needed to create professional-grade tracks. We are set up with basic lighting, multiple high-quality cameras, some distant and attended, in addition to fixed cameras near the stage that do not need to be attended to. We plan to record individual sound stems for the artists to mix and release songs on their platforms as well as to be able to offer a multi-camera livestream. A variety of options to provide the artists with all types of content. Due to the current pandemic, we have created a set of standards based on CDC, State, and City guidelines, linked below. We are not willing to put anyone at risk- neither artist nor staff member. With that in mind, we are only offering this service to soloists, duo’s and in rare cases more people, if the members live together.
