MUSIC Music brings people together, no matter where it is being played. Bringing live music to public space is a great way to attract crowds of people to enjoy the space. Look to partner with nearby businesses and organizations on music programming: a school may have student groups who want to lead an activity or perform for neighbors; a nearby instrument shop may be interested in providing classes to increase exposure and market to potential customers; a local theater may want to perform in public space to reach new audiences.
