Talented bands, buskers and musical performers are invited to apply to the annual call for performers and take part in some of the Town of Whitby 2019 events and festivals.
“Last year, in response to our first call for performers, we received nearly 100 applications,” said Mayor Don Mitchell. “This year, we look forward to showcasing even more local talent through our community events.”
More than 25 performers will have the opportunity to be featured at the town’s 2019 events, including Music in the Park, Canada Day, Brooklin Harvest Festival, Open Streets and others. For example, there are typically 16 spots for Music in the Park and four to five openings at Canada Day and Harvest Festival. Applications can be submitted online at whitby.ca/callforperformers. The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. on March 19.
An honorarium will be provided. Costs for travel/transportation, accommodation, meals and any other details are the responsibility of the performer. Performers at Music in the Park are responsible for providing their own sound equipment.
To be considered, applicants must complete the expression of interest application form and provide a three-to-four-sentence biography, sample song list, promotional video and link to a website or live performance.
