Becoming a “Music City”

This event was held February 22, 2017 and featured cafe-style discussions designed to understand the potential within the community to develop our local music industry.  There is growing recognition that communities with a vibrant music scene can deliver significant economic and employment benefits beyond the long-acknowledged cultural social benefits. Suddenly, there is a lot of interest in becoming a “Music City” and how to make one succeed.
