This is a showcase performance for the 6 dynamic and talented QT+BIPOC artists that took part in the FM Music residency program. We are thrilled to share these new, exciting voices with our audience! The program provided the chosen QT+BIPOC artists with integral artistic and business skills to bring their talents and wide range of offerings to BC’s young audiences.
