Alberta Spotlight is online to help musicians reach you!
Alberta Music, the National Music Centre, CKUA and Stagehand are partnering with support from the Government of Alberta to deliver Alberta Spotlight, a weekly online concert series featuring Alberta musicians. The funding will go directly to Alberta artists who will be performing. Many have lost income due to cancelled performances because of necessary public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Alberta musicians Nuela Charles, Reuben and the Dark, and Ariane Mahrÿke Lemire will launch the Alberta Spotlight series on June 11, at 4:30 p.m. The artists will perform in their own homes and studios with concerts available online at ckua.com/albertaspotlight. Each concert will feature up to five artists and run weekly throughout the summer. From folk to rap, Albertans will have a variety of music genres to enjoy throughout the series. Fans will also have the ability to tip performers.
Want to apply to take part in Alberta Spotlight?
Applications are now open for musicians to produce and submit a video performance. Selected artists will receive a $1,000 grant to create a 3-song, pre-recorded, high-quality video to be shared as part of the online series. Musicians can apply to perform through albertamusic.org.
