The Mastering of a MUSIC CITY in SAULT STE. MARIE
A Music City, by its simplest definition, is a place with a vibrant music economy. There is growing recognition among governments and other stakeholders that Music Cities can deliver significant economic, employment, cultural and social benefits.
A Music City is a community of any size with a vibrant music economy. Beginning with artists and musicians, Music Cities are home to a broad range of professionals who support artist entrepreneurs in their career development. They contain spaces for education, rehearsal, recording and performance, and foster a live scene with an engaged and passionate audience that provides artists with a fertile ground for developing their craft.
On October 17th, join us as we welcome a dynamic panel of guests and local stakeholders addressing our community to launch MUSIC CITY SAULT STE. MARIE.
Keynote speakers include:
Carole Pope - Singer, Song Writer
Chris Campbell - Director of Culture and Entertainment Tourism with Tourism London
David MacLachlan - Executive Director of Destination Northern Ontario
Panel Discussion featuring: Carole Pope, Chris Campbell, and David MacLachlan PLUS Sean Halliday, SSM Local Immigration Partnership & local musician and Asima Vezina, President and Vice Chancellor of Algoma University
