Calendar instructions

Note for Summer Festivals (from June 5 to September 4): You can submit your classical music events in two ways:

  • Online: Follow the procedure below
  • Using an Excel table: the model table can be downloaded here. Email the table to LSMcalendar@lascena.org
  • Deadline: May 15, 2017

Calendar 2017-2018: you can submit your events online from June 1, 2017

Using a free mySCENA account, you can submit events directly onto the web platform using a simple online form for each event. Once the event is submitted by the user, it will be reviewed by an admin before it is available for the public.

New to the calendar, our online system can handle all arts-related events from around the world, including film, dance, circus, literature, theatre, and visual arts – not to mention different event types such as festivals, conferences, lectures, and masterclasses. The format of the event post allows for the user to submit both a text description and photos associated with the event. The user may also select whether they would like La Scena Musicale to review their event (at this time, available for Montreal and area only).

Regional Print Calendar

For classical music and jazz events in the Province of Quebec and the Ottawa-Gatineau region, La Scena Musicale still offers free listings in our print magazine, which includes the event’s date, time, venue, price, phone number, and a 75-character description.

Please be aware that if your event is within the boundaries of our Regional Print Calendar, you must submit your event in advance of the print deadline. For the June/July/August issue (covering events from June 1st to September 7th), the deadline is now May 15th at 5 PM. You can also consult our Advertising deadlines here (http://myscena.org/advertising/). Of course, you are able to upload your events to appear online at any time.

Procedure

  • We invite you to sign up for your free account starting today at http://myscena.org/register/ (Note, please enter the email address first and then the Username).

  • If you are representing a company or ensemble, please create an account using the company profile option with the name as it is known to the public. This is important as we will be introducing company and ensemble-specific features in the near future.

  • To submit events, please visit http://myscena.org/event-submission/ after logging in. All submitted events are held for approval by LSM staff before it is published.

  • To view your events, visit http://myscena.org/my-events/.

  • Multiple performance events: if your event has multiple performances, you can duplicate the event by clicking the “+” symbol in the list of events. Then you can change the date, the venue, and even artists.

  • Event Location: Please make sure the event’s venue is not already in our database before creating a new venue. Simply type 3-5 letters of the venue’s name, wait a few seconds, and you’ll see the options in our database.
  • Event categories: check off the categories that match your event

  • Event image: the system allows for a large image to make your event stand out on mySCENA. Don’t forget to upload an image.

As we are still testing out the capabilities and limitations of our new web platform, we would appreciate any feedback you may have about mySCENA’s appearance, usability, and features. If you have any questions or concerns about the mySCENA Events Calendar, please contact LSMcalendar@lascena.org.
