Local musicians invited to participate in 2018 edition of #ottmusik

You are here


Ottawa – Ottawa musicians once again have an opportunity to showcase their music to a citywide audience. Through #ottmusik, first introduced in 2015, anyone waiting on hold after calling the City of Ottawa hears local music while they wait.


Between February 5 and March 12, Ottawa singers, bands and musicians of all genres are invited to submit music samples for consideration. Since it began, #ottmusik has received more than 200 submissions and showcased 50 artists.


A committee of Ottawa-area professional musicians will review the submissions and recommend up to 25 songs for use on the City phone systems. The songs will remain on the system for one year, beginning in the spring of 2018.
