Music City is a grassroots asset-based community development initiative. It is built on a conviction that music-making is an open and democratic activity and a vital tool of connection. Music City cultivates pride in Orange’s musical identity, encouraging social connection, life-long learning, and increasing civic engagement. We support our neighbours and community members through educational programs, cultural events, and cultivating grassroots networks of support that extend beyond the musical. During the Covid-19 pandemic Music City is experimenting with new forms of programming to safely re-make public spaces for us to gather, grieve, bear witness, celebrate, and imagine.
