Encore Ottawa Season One is scheduled for an encore broadcast of the series! Check out the schedule below for the repeat broadcasts and stay tuned for information on Encore Ottawa Season Two.

Filmed at the Shenkman Arts Centre in fall 2020, Encore Ottawa set the stage for 16 #ottmusic acts to record a live set with professional crew support and hyper-safe working conditions with respect to COVID-19.

These live tapings adhered to the health and safety guidelines of Ottawa Public Health and the Province of Ontario at all times. Follow this link to read more about the venue and production safety plan.

“In partnership with OMIC, the City is proud to have developed the Ottawa Music Strategy to highlight all this great talent, and it includes initiatives like this one, which offers our stage at the Shenkman Arts Centre to our local musicians. The strategy’s goal is to grow our city’s music industry and promote our local musicians and music professionals. When supporting local, don’t forget about our musicians and artists,” - Mayor Jim Watson

“We are so proud to partner with OMIC, Apt613 and Rogers TV to bring you Encore Ottawa.  I encourage you to explore all of these incredible performances.  Follow your favorite artists, buy their music and someday soon, we look forward to welcoming you back to live performances at the Shenkman Arts Centre and Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe!” - Jahn Fawcett, Acting Artistic Producer and Portfolio Manager for Shenkman Arts Centre and Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe

About Encore Ottawa

Produced by the Ottawa Music Industry Coalition in partnership with Rogers TV, Apartment613, Shenkman Arts Centre and Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe, Encore Ottawa is a unique collaboration between non-profit organizations, local arts media, and the City of Ottawa; made possible thanks to Ontario Creates and the Ottawa Music Development FundDesigned to meet the needs of local musicians whose opportunities to perform and record are drastically limited by necessary COVID-19 safety measures, these high quality video showcases will give Ottawa acts the opportunity to develop new audiences both locally and abroad. The project granted artist fees to more than 40 professional musicians and generated weeks of work for the Shenkman Arts Centre technical staff, whose state-of-the-art venue was dark due to COVID-19 cancellations.
