Call for Submissions: Musical Moments

Hosted by The Musical Stage Company

Launched in 2020, Musical Moments is an initiative of The Musical Stage Company that brings musical experiences to Toronto and Greater Toronto Area communities. Harnessing the imagination and creativity of local artists, Musical Moments lights up the city through movement and song. 

This year, Musical Moments will be looking at musical experiences that are creatively exploring a moment (or moments) of sweeping change that force us to shift who we fundamentally are, and transform our being. We would love all Musical Moments to shine a light on personal (and sometimes autobiographical) discoveries that artists have made as a result of exploring their own moments of internal transformation.

We are interested in how audiences can meet artists in a different way, as we continue to imagine the possibilities of what the relationship could be between artists and their communities through musical acts of creativity in outdoor public spaces. 

Through commissions and open applications, we will award a minimum of $35,000 to multiple artists so they can develop, produce and execute dynamic experiences in neighbourhoods across Toronto and the GTA.

Register to attend a webinar to learn more about the program: Monday, November 29th at 1:00 pm ET Monday December 6th at 1:00 pm ET

Deadline: Friday, December 10th, 2021 @ 5:00 PM.


We are actively seeking submissions from candidates of all backgrounds, abilities, and ethnicities and we are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion within this selection process. We especially encourage folx who identify as Women, gender minorities, Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, LGBTQ2S+, d/Deaf, Mad, Disabled/People with Disabilities, and/or Neurodiverse to submit.
