Call for Submissions: Musical Works in Concert, SummerWorks

2014 MUSICAL WORKS IN CONCERT APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN- DEADLINE FEBRUARY 7, 2014

Founded in 2010, Musical Works in Concert is an initiative that provides a forum for Canadian writers and composers to help develop and present original works of music theatre. To date, Musical Works has presented eleven original Canadian musicals.

The focus of these evenings is to showcase new pieces by artists working with both traditional and non-traditional musical theatre models, with music ranging from opera to bluegrass, rap to rock, and classical and contemporary music theatre. The series offers artists a space to have their work presented in a stripped-down concert format in front of an audience. In 2014, the concerts will take place on Sunday, August 10th, and Monday, August 11th.
