ONSTAGE is a live concert series presented by Chambers Plan and produced by Hubcast Media that showcases world-class musicians and behind-the-scenes personalities who call Canada home.
Hosted by Fiona Forbes (and sometimes Chewbacca "Chewy" Forbes!), the program takes you to live venues and unique destinations across the country to celebrate all music genres that make up Canada’s cultural landscape.
Regular livestreams, concert segments and interviews are featured on social media with highlight episodes airing nationally on Joytv, a division of Zoomer Media.

THE "ISOLATION SESSIONS"
LET'S KEEP THE MUSIC GOING THROUGH THESE TOUGH TIMES
Starting Monday March 23, 2020, Fiona will be set up to host ONSTAGE from her living room! Using Hubcasting technology, the ONSTAGE and Hubcast crew will practice "physical distancing" but still be able to produce our concert series when we all need the healing of music the most.
We are super excited to announce that ONSTAGE is partnering with Music Heals Canada as we all muddle through this together.
Music Heals raises funds and awareness for music therapy programs across Canada. In a time of uncertainty, music is here for us as we physically and socially distance ourselves - just as it helps music therapy patients dealing with feelings of isolation. Music brings a sense of safety and security for children in hospitals, evokes communication to non verbal children on the autism spectrum, sparks memory in patients living with dementia, and brings comfort to those at end-of-life care music therapy Music as medicine.
Over the past six years, Music Heals has granted $2 million for music therapy programs in Canada funding over 50,000 music therapist visits for Canadians in-need. Music Heals is a not-for-profit society incorporated in British Columbia and is registered with Canada Revenue Agency as a charitable foundation. Learn more about music therapy and how to become involved at MusicHeals.ca.
We are currently seeking additional partners to become involved with the ONSTAGE so we can develop ways to also support artists, songwriters and content creators during these trying times ahead. If you are are interested in becoming a partner, please contact us at for more information or to share your suggestions.
If you are an artist with original music, learn how to submit your music for consideration at OnStageLive.tv/ArtistSubmissions.
We look forward to hearing from you!
