Calling all musicians

The City of Victoria is updating its roster of musicians for its free outdoor concerts at Centennial Square and Beacon Hill Park.

Each summer, the City of Victoria offers free outdoor concerts at Centennial Square and Beacon Hill Park for the community to enjoy.

The city is now updating its roster of pre-qualified, local musicians to perform a range of music genres at these venues from June to September, as well as at other city-programmed events throughout the year.

To be considered for the city’s 2017 roster, musicians are invited to apply and provide links to samples of their work by midnight on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017.

Preference will be given to musicians residing in the capital region. Submissions will be assessed based on the musician’s or band’s broad appeal, technical expertise and talent, and will be reviewed by a team of City of Victoria staff and local music professionals.

Selected musicians will be contacted in early March.
