TTC subway musician audition dates
The 32nd Annual TTC Subway Musicians’ Auditions are just around the corner. The first 175 solo or duo acts that apply by June 25 (or whichever comes first) will be invited to audition at the Canadian National Exhibition from Friday, August 20 to Sunday, August 22.
Starting Friday, May 21, application packages will be available at the TTC Head Office, 1900 Yonge Street, at the Davisville subway station, Monday to Friday only, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or on the TTC website, www.ttc.ca.
The top 74 acts as voted by a panel of judges, will be selected to play in the subway system for a year, from October 8, 2010 to October 7, 2011. Thirty-one years ago, in 1979, eight musicians were selected to perform in eight stations. Today there are 85 musicians performing at 25 stations.
Musicians must be 18 years of age or older. Completed and signed application forms must be returned to the Head Office reception desk by June 25, 2010.
