OnStage: Artist Applications

OnStage gives musicians, singers, and performing groups an opportunity to meet with a panel of professional musicians and community presenters who are all familiar with Alberta Showcase. Artists present a 10-minute showcase then get 25 minutes of one-on-one feedback. The panel will react to the performance, critique promotional materials, and can also recommend future directions for artists.

Artist Applications for the OnStage Workshops are subject to a $10 processing fee plus applicable taxes

OnStage Workshops are $25 for Non-Members, but they are still Free for Arts Touring Alliance Members. However, space is limited and subject to the terms and conditions listed below.
