Call for Entry for Sea to Sky working musicians and bands
Deadline: August 1, 2020
Event Date: Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20, 2020
Where: Whistler Olympic Plaza, Whistler Village
Hey Sea to Sky professional musicians!
Arts Whistler is producing Hear and Now: Whistler’s Local Music Celebration, outdoors in Olympic Plaza on September 19 and 20, 2020.
Please note that this is subject to change based on provincial health regulations. If we aren’t able to host Hear and Now outdoors, we will video record the bands at the Arts Centre (using the same schedule), for broadcast as an online series this fall.
Arts Whistler directly funds Hear and Now every year with a modest budget. It’s even more challenging this year given revenue losses due to COVID-19. BUT we have secure budget to continue with our Hear and Now policy of paying every musician $100 per 40-minute set. If you have a four-piece band, that band will earn $400. If you are a musician in two bands, you will personally earn $200, etc. This is an excellent showcase for the local music sector and we appreciate you working with us to make it happen.
Please note that AT LEAST ONE MEMBER of every band must hold an Arts Whistler membership. Membership is $30/year for an individual membership.
Hear and Now 2020 has slots for up to 16 bands and/or solo acts. In order to provide opportunities for more musicians, any bands that have played Hear and Now the past two consecutive years (2018 and 2019), will be put on a wait list and preference will be given to bands that haven’t played the event yet, or who haven’t played for two consecutive years.
The following band(s) have played the event in both 2018 and 2019:
- Dakota Pearl
If musicians in the above bands are in other bands, please feel free to apply with a band that isn’t on the “two-years in a row” list.
