According to a press release, the workshop will take place Tuesday, February 12, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Liberty Hall located at 103 East Erwin Street.

The workshop will be co-hosted by the Texas Music Office and the City of Tyler.

The workshop is open to anyone interested in learning about the new Texas Music Office program that seeks to foster music business economic development in Texas cities and communities.

The press release said Brendon Anthony, director of the Texas Music Office within the Office of the Governor’s Economic Development and Tourism Division, will be present to explain the Music Friendly Community designation and answer questions.
