KWTX is reporting that Chip Adams, a specialist with the Texas Music Office, will attend the workshop to explain how a 'Music Friendly' community designation works and answer questions. Participation in the program will help give the Central Texas community access to a network that encourages and supports local musicians.

State officials are hoping that the certification will show professionals in the music industry that Harker Heights is serious about improving the music scene in the city.

What Does a 'Music Friendly' Designation Mean?

There are over 30 cities in Texas that have earned a 'Music Friendly' designation, including Austin, Dallas, Dripping Springs, Fort Worth, New Braunfels, Round Rock, San Antonio, and San Marcos.

According to the Texas Music Office, the 'Music Friendly Community' program provides communities in Texas with a network to help foster development in the local music industry. Communities certified as 'Music Friendly' stand out to music professionals as serious about developing the area music scene and making sure it can grow.

Music Friendly Workshop Location

The workshop will be held at the Harker Heights Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center in the 552 block of East Knights Way in Harker Heights.
