Seattle Launches Plan to Keep its Music Strong
When you think of Seattle you very well might think of Starbucks and Nirvana. In the vein of being remembered for the latter, Washington’s cultural-capital is taking their musical community to a new level, initiating Seattle City of Music, an association aiming to stimulate music-related arts and business development.
Planned over the course of a year by groups including record labels, record stores, schools, businesses, recording studios, radio stations, venues, and festivals, SCoM will foster musical education programs, offer additional professional opportunities and improved health care for musicians, support the growth of music businesses and create new jobs, and help keep venues and festivals running smoothly.
SCoM is expected to launch in 2020.
