The City of Hamilton, in partnership with the Hamilton Music Advisory Team (HMAT), is pleased to present Music Mondays as a virtual music series for 2021. The series features pre-recorded performances by 15 local musicians.
Each Monday in May, a new video was released on Facebook @HamOntMusic and on the City of Hamilton’s YouTube channel. Each video features three Hamilton musicians, all of whom perform in a similar musical genre. In order to follow COVID 19 regulations, all participating musicians recorded their performances at home.
In addition to the performing musicians, volunteers from the Hamilton Music Advisory Team and local music industry representatives introduced each video.
The Music Mondays series started in 2018 and supports the City of Hamilton’s Music Strategy and its goal of cultivating music creation and talent along with increasing access to music experiences.
