Music in&around  

Let’s share music in a listening room style environment. Audiences, of limited size, gather to offer their full attention to the performance. This format directly supports musicians sharing their original (or mostly original) work in an attentive, dedicated atmosphere. 

How to be considered for Music In&Around?  Submit your information on this google form

Duration: (1) 50 minute set, no intermission. If there are 2 performers/bands, various combinations of set lengths that amount to no more than 70 minutes. 

Production: TCA staff will work with musician/group to devise suitable format/feel. Shows will be held in the Encore Gallery.

Please note: TCA does not have an in-house sound engineer, but TCA will work with musicians/groups to create a positive playing and listening experience by either (1) assisting in finding a sound tech who will work for a % of ticket sales or (2) facilitating use of TCA equipment. 

Terms: Split of ticket sales. Details to be discussed upon booking arrangements.  

Booking: This call is on-going, and we are glad to be receiving many submissions. Our team will get back to you as soon as a potential date is available for your band, which might be a few months ahead.
