RE: Music in the Market Call Out
Hello Granville Island Buskers and Musicians,
Granville Island produces Music in the Market, December 5, 6, 12, 13, 19 and 20. We are currently booking seasonal choral and musical acts to perform in the Public Market and Net Loft. All performances must include seasonal music such as Christmas music, choral winter arrangements, music from cultures celebrating the winter season. Smaller ensembles (trios, quartets, quintets and sextets) perform in the Public Market and Net Loft on Saturdays. Larger groups and those including horns or percussion will perform above the Blue Parrot in the Public Market on Sundays. We are not accepting solo acts, duos or groups larger than 30. We will be providing a sound technician/stage manager this year and simple sound system for the Blue Parrot Stage. The Net Loft stage is acoustic.
If you are interested in performing, please send a proposal including:
- Name of artist or group
- Contact name, email and telephone number
- Audition preference
Deadline for submissions is November 13th.
If you have any questions, please contact Carrie Nimmo

A couple of talented people are needed to help draw attention to a new production vehicle on November 3, 2015 from about 8:00 PM to 8:30 PM.
We are bringing a group of automotive journalists to Vancouver area to market a new vehicle. During the day they will be driving it on some country roads, then they will go to dinner and afterwards be involved in some entertainment.
The event takes place on November 3, 2015 and we need to bring attention to the vehicle that will be staged in front of a mural in Vancouver…a short performance from about 8:00 PM to 8:30 PM. It is expected that the journalists will want to take some photos of the vehicle and either put them on their website or their publication.
I’m thinking maybe a living statue and a contact juggler however I am open to suggestions.
Contact me at 647 225 7163.
