The Capital Music Awards recognizes artists and members of the community who contribute to Ottawa’s diverse music scene. This second edition of the awards will showcase some of the best that the region has to offer and help promote the local music scene to the rest of Canada and beyond. The awards would also provide a platform to honour inductees towards an Ottawa Music Hall of Fame, as envisioned by the Ottawa Music Strategy.
