Dripping Springs completed the first step in becoming certified by hosting a Texas Music Office sponsored Music Friendly Community workshop on October 21, 2020.Fourteen musicians, venue owners, and music industry professionals attended the virtual meeting to learn about the designation and what it would mean for the music community in Dripping Springs.
“The Dripping Springs area is well known for fostering musical talent as shown by a multitude of venues promoting live music, several recording studios and our highly successful annual Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival. The Texas Music Office will give us a way to reach, assist and advocate for the great talent we have locally,” remarked Pam Owens, President/CEO of the Dripping Springs Visitors Bureau.
The core function of the Texas Music Office is to serve as a clearinghouse for Texas music industry information via the TMO's Texas Music Industry Directory (a business referral network comprised of 15,000-plus Texas music businesses), serve as a liaison between music businesses and government offices and agencies, publicize significant developments within the industry, and to attract essential music industry to foster the economic development of Texas music businesses and musicians.
