Celebrate What’s Right: Memphis Music in the Key of E: Education, Equity, and Economics
Memphis and music go hand-in-hand. We are a city that started with “Blues, Soul, and Rock n’ Roll” and have continued to transform and march to the beat of our own drum. So how can we lift up the musicians that are so woven into the fabric of our city?
At the lunchtime panel discussion, you’ll hear from the leaders who are paving the path for the next generation of Memphis sounds. They’ll explore the infrastructure of Memphis music, how supporting and educating our musicians contributes to our city’s cultural identity, and the economic impact of investing in our city’s musical talent.
- James Dukes aka IMAKEMADBEATS, Founder of Unapologetic
- Jayne Ellen White, Music Specialist of Memphis Tourism
- Dr. Ken Steorts, Founder and President of Visible Music College
- Tonya Dyson, Executive Director of Memphis Slim Collaboratory
- Robert Moody, Music Director of Memphis Symphony Orchestra
Hungry for more? Continue the conversation at our evening discussion. During this happy hour, we’ll invite our audience members to have a seat at the table. We’ll converse and discuss what each of us can do to uplift our music community and why it’s important to continue supporting and activating music in Memphis. Register HERE.
Registration will be available until May 28th at 11:00AM.
