Open Call for Bands


This Open Call will primarily be used to create a roster of artists from which to select for our summer Arts Splash concert series. We will also utilize this to call on you, if interested, to participate in other programs throughout our calendar year.

Art Splash concerts are held outdoors at 6 pm on June 9th, June 23rd, July 7th, July 21st, August 4th, and August 18th in many of our beautiful parks, gardens, and public spaces.
