Calling Canadian Musicians!
If you are a professional Canadian classical or world musician currently residing in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, apply to be part of a special Prairie Debut roster of artists for concerts Close to Home.
Prairie Debut is actively working to support Canadian classical musicians and our presenting partners during an unprecedented time. Wherever possible, we are creating opportunities to connect audiences with our family of artists through events like the ones below. In 2020, we introduced the Close to Home concept, as we facilitate concert performances involving local artists.
Check back or join our mailing list to be notified of upcoming events as they are scheduled.

VIRTUAL MUSIC CLASSES
If you’re a student of music keen to finesse your skills, Prairie Debut offers a unique opportunity to learn from our family of season artists and alumni musicians. In these virtual sessions, a professional musician demonstrates technique and shares performance tips. Online sessions and masterclasses for a variety of instruments, including piano, violin, viola, cello, flute and guitar are available.

“The performance was well received by all (even a few in attendance who usually don’t appreciate classical music commented on how good the performance was). One comment of: “Best concert ever! Not just best of the season.” …. The performers were engaging and entertaining while speaking to the audience and the musical performance was fabulous!”

“The talent was amazing …. Such lovely young people to work with, and they were crowd pleasers, mixing right in and greeting everyone on their way out after the show. We had about 25 young piano students there as well as several teachers. The crowd responded really well to the question and answer period as there were many questions. Thank you for sending them out on tour.”
