Online Music Residency Program 2020

  • Our annual Music Residency Program connects people from the music industry with local emerging talents. This year, the program has been moved online due to COVID-19. 
  • Emerging contemporary musicians were invited to apply in May 2020 to be part of an online residency and performance program focusing on skills, capacity building and live performance opportunities.
  • Music residency artists and events have been announced. 

This year’s participants are being mentored by Jarred Young (Bad Pony, Feelds). Jarred is a well-known and respected artist, manager and booking agent. Jarred will also provide training on streaming a live performance and musical performance techniques.

The residency also includes:
