Every season we rely on the generosity of local hosts who welcome our visiting musicians into their homes. Often this simple act of hospitality sparks friendships that circle the globe and grow into the decades. For a music lover, there is perhaps nothing more satisfying than opening your home to a visiting musician and supporting their art.

If you have a spare room in your Toronto home, a welcoming spirit, and a love of music, please consider becoming a Billet Host for the 2023/24 season.

This sounds lovely, but what makes a great billet host?

A great billet host is a gracious host and a friend in the making. Our billet hosts love music and have a deep desire to support the work of professional musicians. Many have developed long-standing friendships with musicians, welcoming the same musicians into their homes year after year.

What exactly do I need to provide?

Billet hosts are asked to provide lodging for our visiting guest artists and musicians. This includes providing a furnished and private room and access to kitchen and washroom facilities.

Do I get any perks?

In addition to wonderful friendships and the satisfaction of supporting musicians from around the world, our billet hosts enjoy two free drink vouchers for their musician’s concert.

This sounds great! How do I volunteer?

Wonderful! Fill out our registration form here and we will be in touch.
