|2012 MUSICAL WORKS IN CONCERT CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Musical Works in Concert is now accepting submissions for it’s third year. Musical Works in Concert is an initiative founded in 2010 to provide a forum for Canadian writers and composers to help develop and present original music theatre. We strive to give voice to both emerging and emerged artists that work with both traditional and non-traditional forms of music theatre, creating interesting and exciting ways of telling their, and our, stories.
Part of the Music Series, Musical Works in Concert will be going into its 3rd season in 2012. To date, Musical Works has presented six original Canadian musical works: Romeo Candido and Carmen DeJesus’ Prison Dancer, Logan Medland’s Joni Loves Mitchell, Bram Gielen’s Biggish Kids, Tom Bellman and Barbara Nichol’s The Sparrow Songs, Sam Sholdice’s Program, and Paul Sportelli and Jay Turvey’s Oracle.
The focus of these evenings is to showcase new pieces by artists working with musical theatre models. The series offers artists a space to have their work presented in a stripped-down concert format for one night only in front of an audience. This year, the performances will take place on Sunday, August 12th and Monday, August 13th.
Applications are available at summerworks.ca/2011/festival-musicworks.php, and must be postmarked no later than March 1st, 2012.
