Year of Chicago Music
Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) have designated 2020 and 2021 as the Year of Chicago Music. This citywide focus on music is one of the first of its kind in the U.S. The City of Chicago and its partners are working with the local music industry to launch a marketing campaign for Chicago music; provide additional financial grants for musicians and music projects; encourage dialog around inclusion and equity; and call on civic, philanthropic, arts and business leaders to support the music industry. In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the music industry has moved away from live events to #dostuffathome. In support of the live music industry, DCASE has partnered with Do312 to highlight local music venues with musicians now sharing “Music in the Key of Chicago” on virtual platforms. Start exploring “Music in the Key of Chicago” at yearofchicagomusic.org and Do312.com/YearofChicagoMusic and join the conversation on social media using #YearofChicagoMusic and #ChicagoMusic.
