Canadian Federation of Musicians’ Member Services workshop Moved to Evening, May 12th

May 11, 2011

The Canadian Federation of Musicians’ Member Services workshop originally scheduled for 10 AM – 3 PM on Thursday, May 12th will now be held in a shorter format from 7-8 PM. This FREE workshop will be held at the Gower Street United Church Hall in St. John’s. This valuable session is open to all performers and working musicians. They will provide coffee, tea and baked goods for those who attend.

The workshop will explain your rights as a performer, songwriter or composer, how to use contracts to protect yourself when you perform, tour or record and details of services provided to musicians by the Canadian Federation of Musicians, services which include the musicians’ national pension plan, insurance services, co-funding for free admission public and educational concerts, touring support, visas for US performances and information services for both members and non-members.

A number of musicians were interested in the workshop but told us they would have difficulty attending on a weekday during the daytime. So they decided to reschedule and compress the event so more musicians can benefit from the session.

This event is FREE but pre-registration is recommended. Register by calling 709-722-8005 or by emailing info@cfm820.ca.

The Members Concert will still go ahead as planned in the Gower Street United Church Hall immediately following the workshop.

If you attend the 7-8 PM workshop you are welcome to stay for the concert which is also free of charge for anyone at the workshop.
