On September 6, Music Canada’s President & CEO, Graham Henderson, will be discussing Music Cities at Amped Up, presented by Centro San Antonio. The music-focused event will dig into what makes San Antonio’s musical landscape unique, and in addition to Graham’s keynote address, will feature music leaders from local venues, non-profits and, of course, musicians, breaking down San Antonio’s music economy and community. There will also be live performances, including a collaboration between city leaders and artists. Amped Up is happening at the Juarez Plaza, La Villita from 6-9pm.
What can a business development association do to help local music businesses and musicians? What can the community do to help the music economy flourish? These are the questions Graham will explore as he speaks to findings from Music Canada and IFPI’s report The Mastering of a Music City, an award-winning roadmap for communities of all sizes who are trying to realize the full potential of their music economy.
Centro San Antonio is committed to fostering a vibrant and prosperous downtown that benefits the entire San Antonio community. Their mission is “to be an advocate for downtown businesses and property owners, a catalyst for economic improvement in the inner core and a thought leader on important community issues.”
