“This is about creating unique and inclusive spaces. This is about bringing in music that is professionally recorded. Musicians who are paid for their time. It’s about placemaking. It’s about taking places that are historically underutilized and how do we make them more utilized and active in a way that our community truly values what they bring to those respective areas” -On Broadway, Inc. Executive Director Brian Johnson.
Johnson says there will be another press conference on May 30 to announce more details for the series, including those who will be performing.
