Celebrate Music SA!
seems pretty clear with its mission statement: bringing light to all the exceptional music played in San Antonio, blind of age, era or genre. Essentially, the project expands on the goals of local music week (May 17-23)
, anointing all of May as a month to champion San Anto players. The initiative includes a calendar of shows and a challenge to donate to musical education non-profits
The most exciting feature of Celebrate Music SA! is its Musical Story
page, an invitation for musicians to tell the story of their tunes. The poll includes some basic info (beginnings, profession, etc.), but also dives into some deeper questions. Would you want music to be your full time job? Do you feel connected to a music community in SA? Throughout May, Celebrate Music SA! will share one of these stories per day, documenting the wide spectrum of artists gigging and recording in the Alamo City.
