WHAT WE DO

Best known for our talent contest, SPECTRA offers amateur singers their choice of two free programs: the Indie Program and the Workshop Series.

  1. INDIE PROGRAM
    This 15-day weekend program starts in December and ends in June.  The 36 qualifying participants must commit the following components:

    • Songwriting Clinic
      Learn how to write an original song. This one-on-one session is suitable for both experienced AND inexperienced songwriters.

    • Singer/Songwriter Competition
      Showcase your original song. Every participant wins a great prize.  If you don't play a musical instrument, or are unable to find an accompanist, we'll create a backing track for your performance. The winner of this competition will have their song professionally recorded.

    • Workshops

    • One-on-One Vocal Coaching
      Spend 20-minutes with one of Canada's leading vocal coaches.

    • Retreat Weekend
      Pay $199 and bring two friends to the retreat for free. You and your two guests will share a hotel-style room with an ensuite washroom. You and your two guests will have to cover your own travel expenses plus the cost of three subsidized meals.

    • Group Recording
      To date, Spectra has released three group recordings and all three songs became hits.

    • Duet Contest


  2. WORKSHOP SERIES
    These free workshops are offered to singers who would like to benefit from Spectra's educational program without committing to all the components in the Indie Program.

SPECTRA is a division of RACA -- a registered non-profit organization that celebrates diversity in music.

If you're an emerging singer who is focussed, reliable, hard-working, and positive-minded, please click here to register for Spectra 2016.
