Convergence Open Mics

Convergence Café is Calgary’s newest downtown café and venue.  Renovated and re-visioned, Convergence will be opening in July 2009 with a commitment to encouraging and showcasing new artists of all disciplines and genres.

The ethos of Convergence Open Mics…

    1. Opportunity for new and emerging artists to share their gifts as soloists or in collaboration with other artists
    Encouragement  and mutual respect in an intimate, café venue setting with good quality sound, lighting, and ambiance
    Community for fresh creative voices and for those who appreciate creativity and passion.

New Singer / Songwriters Open Mic                                                 Tuesdays @8:00 PM

    This open mic is for new and emerging singer/songwriters who are looking for a unique and welcoming venue to present their original material. Convergence is committed to being a fresh alternative to the usual pub/bar open mic scene and will promote an encouraging listening environment for artists and appreciators of original music.

Classical / Jazz / Instrumental Open Mic                                         Thursdays @8:00 PM

    This open mic is for instrumental and vocal musicians who may not have a regular opportunity to gather and perform (for pleasure) apart from teaching, an occasional recital or gig. Passionate musicians, teachers, and students are all welcome to participate and encourage one another. We are also confident that this original event will attract a regular following of guests and appreciators who have always wanted an informal listening venue for this eclectic music.

These new open mic gatherings will be hosted by musicians from each community who will perform opening sets, coordinate participants, and act as MCs for the evening. For more information please contact

Convergence will provide illuminated performance space, quality PA system, mics, monitors, music stands, and a decent (electric) piano. Informal sound tech support will also be provided. Just bring your instruments, music charts (if applicable), and your passion.
