Becoming a certified “Music Friendly Community”

Participation in the Texas Music Office’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.

Here in Brenham, we are in the process of  completing all the steps for certification! As soon as we are able to gather again, we will host a Music Friendly Workshop to provide more information to artists and venues within Washington County. In the meantime, we fully support what this program embodies and want to do our part for our local music community.  Live music has started to return to Washington County, find venues and events here.

The Texas Music Office has compiled a list of grants, relief and small business loans available to music industry professionals who have been affected by the current events.
