All correct notes

The fact that we’ve reached the Music Cities Convention confirms what we already know – it’s an exciting time for music in Huntsville. Creating a more dynamic and diverse music ecosystem is something we take seriously as it strengthens our economy and boosts tourism.

Our goal is to strategically create a world-class music scene unlike anywhere else and to be recognized as a leading global music destination.

The caliber of talent we attract to The Orion Amphitheater, Mars Music Hall, VBC, Stovehouse, Furniture Factory, The Camp and other local venues continues to impress. Music education is also reaching new heights with the Alabama A&M Maroon & White Band being invited to participate in the 2023 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade and the upcoming Huntsville High School Band participating in the New Year’s Day Parade in London in 2024.

These factors, along with the efforts of Arts Huntsville, Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, Opera Huntsville, Maitland Conservatory, Microwave Dave Music Education Foundation and other community-minded organizations, bring us closer toward our goal – to become a leading music city.

Fortunately for us, major stakeholders in the music industry are starting to hear the song we’re singing. The Music Cities Convention is an opportunity to raise the volume.
