OnStage 2019 Workshops
The Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta presents OnStage, a program offering professional feedback to artists who are interested in touring dates in Alberta. 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 feedback from each of the panelists. The panel will react to the performance, critique promotional materials, and can also recommend future directions for artists.
