One Song Glory

The submission deadline for this opportunity has passed.

One Song Glory is a fully subsidized five-weekend long intensive youth musical theatre training program that builds community, self-confidence, and self-expression through a combination of new music creation, masterclasses, rehearsal, and online presentations. Our goal is to offer participants a professional rehearsal experience, insight about the industry, the chance to engage with new works, and the guidance to develop a fruitful career in the performing arts.

Typically, this program is held in-person in Toronto. However, due to current restrictions on gathering, we have made the exciting decision to move this program entirely online. We are thrilled to grow our network of young performers and non-performing artists, giving students from across the country (who reside in remote, rural, and urban communities) access to fully subsidized training led by Canada’s leading musical artists.

We are proud to report that to date, over 850 young Canadians have completed One Song Glory, without any costs to the participants. Past participants are now gracing international stages and Canadian concert halls, including Broadway and The Stratford and Shaw Festivals.

How to Participate

  • Any young artist between the ages of 13-19 is invited to participate in our free online video creation workshop, and subsequently record and send us a video sample of their work.
  • From those videos, 100 performers and non-performing artists will be invited to join our free five-weekend training intensive.
  • In groups of eight, the participants will create a brand new musical theatre song and video presentation under the guidance of top Canadian directors, composers, and designers.
  • Please note the first 550 artists to register will be invited to attend our free online video creation workshop, be given the chance to learn how to improve their video creations by a team of leading industry professionals, be given individualized feedback, and be invited to re-edit their audition videos.
