What We Believe in

  1. The Arts Thrive on Networks. We can create a stronger community by developing connections between artists, audiences, government, business, and all levels of the music industry.

  2. It Must be Easy for the Public to Encounter Music. Each population center needs access to events and experiences should be available at a low cost.

  3. All Levels of Music Creation are Important. The music lesson, the backyard concert, the club show, and the festival are connected and need similar support.

  4. The Musical Arts are Key Elements of the Economy. The support we give them as a community will come back financially in many ways.

  5. Digital Media Changes the Entire Artistic Landscape. We need to be students of the new media and willing to question our assumptions about how art is made and shared.
