Congratulations! You have been accepted to participate in TCML 2019!

You will be registered for TCML 2019 once you have completed both steps below (ensembles will be registered once every member has completed the registration). The registration process must be completed by March 22, 2019 to ensure your participation in TCML2019. If you decide not to participate, we request that you contact us as soon as possible.

  • Each member of a pre-formed ensemble is required to register. However, one ensemble member should be designated to provide information about the ensemble as part of their individual registration.

  • Please fill out the mandatory fields of the survey (this survey will help us track emergency contact information, dietary requirements, and housing needs)

Next Steps

Once all of the participants have registered (paid the fee, filled out the survey, and uploaded artist information), the TCML team will begin to facilitate housing (for those artists requesting it); schedule the introduction of the working group members; and the scheduling of opt in activities.

Our housing program is a community volunteer led effort. Members of the Toronto contemporary music community and beyond donate spare bedrooms, couches, and air mattresses for TCML participants to use for the duration of the workshop. While we make every effort to find those who need a place to stay, we cannot guarantee everyone will have a private bedroom. If you are from outside of Toronto and would prefer to handle your own accommodations please let us know in the participant survey.


After registration is complete, we will be putting you in touch with your collaborators. Here is what you can anticipate:

  • COMPOSERS: you will receive information on the musicians and the instrumentation for your piece. You must deliver a draft of a piece no longer than five minutes in length by Tuesday May 14, 2019.

  • MUSICIANS/ENSEMBLES: you will find out who you are playing with and who is writing for you. Your group's composer will deliver a draft of the piece to you by Tuesday May 14, 2019 and you are expected to prepare for the piece prior to the TCML workshop week.

  • GROUP FACILITATION: The TCML team is planning to help get group introductions and workflow off to a quick start prior to the workshop. In mid April, a TCML organizer will facilitate a video conference meeting for your group. This is intended to establish your communications, and allow us greater insight into your preparations, and needs as a group.


Individual schedules for opt in activities will be distributed at the end of April 2019.
