Galaxie Young Performers Program
Dreaming of a Future in Music?
The Galaxie Young Performers Program is an unforgettable musical experience open to talented young folks, ages 14 to 24. Each year, 30 to 40 performers are selected by a jury of industry professionals to participate in the program. These young performers will have the opportunity to work on their music one-on-one with 2014 Winnipeg Folk Festival performers!
They gathered together at the serene First Unitarian United Church to work on their music with these world-class musicians, then experienced what it feels like to perform in front of the Winnipeg Folk Festival audience on Shady Grove.
On Thursday, July 10, you’ll get a full day of workshops with your mentor at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg (603 Wellington). Lunch and refreshments provided.
On Friday, July 11, you’ll get a performance spot at the 2014 Winnipeg Folk Festival! Live like a Festival performer with backstage access and meals all day.
You can apply as a solo performer or as a group. Vocalists, instrumentalists and singer/songwriters are all welcome.
Program fee is $175 per applicant, which includes a 5-day ticket to the Festival and backstage access for Friday (includes meals).
Bursaries will be available for Canadian participants.
You’ll need to submit a short biography, photo and three songs.
Registration is now open. Complete the form below by April 15. Mentors will be announced in March.
