The Maryland Performing Artist Touring Roster is a list of curated Maryland-based artists who have a demonstrated history of successful, professional touring engagements. MSAC uses the roster to promote artistic collaboration between Maryland touring artists and Maryland presenters with the goal of increasing touring engagements for Maryland professional performing artists.
Benefits of being listed on the Roster include:
- Maryland Touring Grant funding is available to eligible Maryland-based non-profit organizations to support Roster Artist booking fees.
- MSAC promotes the Roster and funding opportunities to presenters.
- New! MSAC’s new website (coming in late summer 2020) will allow each Roster Artist to update their profile with current booking information and work samples and provide easier navigation and search capabilities for presenters.
Applications are open to Independent Artists and Performing Companies/Groups who are able to demonstrate a successful history of professional touring engagements. Read full eligibility requirements in the program guidelines.
Applications are reviewed by panelists on a quarterly basis. Applications submitted by July 1, 2020 will be included in the first round of FY21 Roster reviews.
