AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott has announced the Texas Music Office (TMO) and Visit Rockwall will co-host a Music Friendly Community workshop in Rockwall on Tuesday, Aug. 31.
TMO Community Relations & Outreach Specialist Chip Adams will be present to explain the Music Friendly Community designation and answer questions.
Participation in TMO’s Music Friendly Community program provides Texas communities with a network for fostering music industry development and sends a clear message to industry professionals that certified communities are serious about attracting and developing music industry growth. Rockwall's workshop is the first step in the certification process. When complete, Rockwall will join more than 25 other Texas cities that have earned the coveted designation "Music Friendly."
"As we unleash the full might of the Texas economy, I look forward to continuing to work alongside community and business leaders in Rockwall to ensure they have the knowledge and tools they need to succeed," said Governor Abbott. "Music is a big part of the Texas brand and our local economies, and I thank the Texas Music Office for helping communities large and small to amplify creative partnerships and spur new business growth."
Musicians, venues, and the general public are all welcome to attend.
Tuesday, August 31, 2021 from 5:30–6:30 p.m. CT
