Christmas at Museum 2017

Cozy Concert Series

Would you or someone you know be interested in providing Christmas music during our Christmas Market?

Come and perform as part of our “Cozy Concerts Series” at our Christmas Market coming up this November 20-25, 2017!

We are currently booking musical groups looking for some talent exposure at our event.

It would be a wonderful opportunity for yourself, solo artists, groups or your school’s performing arts to showcase their talents to this part of the community.

Last year we hosted school choirs, string groups, recital groups, piano, violin, guitar, solo performers and so on. There is room for a wide variety of performers to be in our series! It certainly was a highlight for our guests and was a big hit. We are so grateful to all our brilliant performers who came last year! Our event was so “Christmassy”!

Come and enhance our Christmas atmosphere at the museum during the Christmas Market.

The schedule is set up for half hour performances.

The acoustics are spectacular!

We have a piano available for use on the main floor.

Call Jennifer at the Museum 604-758-5667 or email jennifer.martens@mennonitemuseum.org to find out how you can submit your demo music and/or schedule an interview for your chance to participate. Thank you!
