Hey yo: we’re calling all buskers for a special open audition on Thursday, January 14!

We’re looking to bring more performers into TransLink’s existing Musician Program, to supplement the program before and during the Olympics. Hopefully, talented musicians from our region can help liven up the Olympic period when customers may be waiting for transit!

The details of the auditions:

Thursday, January 14, 2010
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
TransLink head office
(4th Floor Metrotower II, 4720 Kingsway, Burnaby)
Cost: free!

Successful candidates will be offered a license to perform at select stations, located primarily in the downtown core, from February 1 to March 31.

Many more details on the whole audition process can be found in the audition press release. There’s also a bit of info discussing a new pilot project for the musician program that will be developed in the next three months. Enjoy!
