The Art in the Loop Foundation is looking for talented, local musicians to perform on the KC Streetcar or at Streetcar stops during our 2019 Art in the Loop Streetcar Summer Sounds Music Series. The theme for our 2019 project is “Make/Believe”.

Artwork will be installed at KC Streetcar stops and in Washington Square Park. We want to bring music and artwork together and are seeking local musicians who want to experience performing in a unique setting, engaging with their audience in a distinctive way.

How to apply:

  • Complete the form at the following link, including links to an online music sample or video. Applications without music samples will not be considered.
