2017 OnStage: Grande Prairie

Arts Touring Alliance in partnership with the Bear Creek Folk Music Festival presents OnStage: Grande Prairie, a program offering professional feedback to artists who are interested in touring dates in Alberta.

OnStage: Grande Prairie will be held on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at the Grande Prairie Live Theatre.

OnStage: Professional Development for Touring Artists 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. If you are applying for Alberta Showcase it is advisable to do the spot you are proposing. The panel will react to the performance, critique promotional materials, and can also recommend future directions for artists.

The Arts Touring Alliance represents artists and presenters from across the province. Its programs promote and nurture arts touring, provide networking opportunities and access to professional development, which is made possible thanks to our funders: Alberta Foundation for the Arts and Canadian Heritage.

Bear Creek Folk Music Festival features 4 stages with over 30 provincial, national, and international touring artists performing from a wide range of genres, including country, Celtic, blues, gospel, Americana, bluegrass, world music, contemporary and traditional folk, rock , and many things in between. With its diverse and high-calibre lineup, there is something for everyone to enjoy!
