Thanks For Hearing the Call

The musicSPARK Call for Talent is now closed. The jury is out on the 68 submissions we received. Soon, we’ll announce the full schedule and talent roster for our 10th annual celebration of our own incomparable and emerging talent.

All Local, All Free, Always

Every Fall, musicSPARK is the place for all different types of music – the awesomeness you might not have even known was here – and celebrate it in clubs and on stages throughout downtown Raleigh.
