Governor Abbott announces virtual music conference

Governor Greg Abbott announced a virtual, one-day music conference to be held in Texas.

The Second Annual Texas Sounds and Cities conference will be held on Monday, November 16 starting at 11 a.m.

The conference will be co-hosted by the Texas Music Office and Hear Fort Worth, and it will bring together music lovers to discuss the future of music in Texas.

“Music is a big part of the Texas brand,” said Governor Abbott. “As our focus is on safely and strategically revitalizing all aspects of the Lone Star State—work, school, entertainment, and culture—Texas is committed to working alongside community leaders to ensure they have the knowledge and tools they need. I thank the Texas Music Office and Hear Fort Worth for sharing their knowledge and leading the discussion on recovery strategies for musicians, venues, and the music industry in Texas.”

The goal of the conference is to discuss recovery strategies for musicians, venues and the music industry in Texas. Some of the speakers include Brendon Anthony, director of the Texas Music Office and Adriana Cruz, executive director of the Office of the Governor’s Economic Development & Tourism Division.
