FOR THE
LOVE OF
MUSIC.

Our mission

IT IS OUR MISSION TO PRESENT A WIDE VARIETY OF MUSIC THROUGH PERFORMANCES AND OUTREACH PROGRAMS; FOSTER A SENSE OF COMMUNITY AMONG LISTENERS AND PERFORMERS; AND CONNECT PROFESSIONAL AND AMATEUR MUSICIANS TO SHARE AND INSPIRE ONE ANOTHER.

Born from intimate living room jam sessions in Charlotte, NC, Tosco Music Parties have grown into popular community concerts where nationally recognized acts share the stage with undiscovered artists and audience members are invited to sing along throughout the evening.

From concerts and open mic nights to music scholarships and outreach, Tosco Music is dedicated to helping the community explore, develop and share their passion for music in all its forms.

    Open Mic Night

    Whether you're a veteran of the stage or making your debut, our open mic nights offer a supportive community atmosphere where you can share your love of music.
  • Musician Support

    Musician Support

    Performers feel the hospitality on the night of events, from the full backline provided, to a buffet dinner in the green room and host housing when needed. We assist with CD sales and help you make connections for future opportunities at area venues and private events.
  • Community Outreach

    Community Outreach

    Tosco Music brings the joy of singing to seniors in the community and area events that are free and open to the public, provides ticket scholarships for neighbors who might not otherwise afford them, and funds youth music scholarships to summer camps at The Swannanoa Gathering and Community School of the Arts.
