#MakeMusicHartford: We Made Some (…well, a lot of) Noise!

When we decided to embark upon MMH Year 2, we knew we couldn’t pull off a bigger and better event without the help of our friends and neighbors. This is what led to the creation of our Planning Committee and the 8 Neighborhood Music Hubs (Butler McCook became the 9th all by themselves, very quickly organizing a day filled with music at their homestead on Main Street!). With a goal of 20 Spotlight Events and 100 total events throughout the city, we met and surpassed both goals by producing 25 Spotlight Events and 103 total performances in Hartford! 

All of this is thanks to you, the city and citizens of Hartford. In addition to the following sponsors, community partners, and organizations listed below, there were dozens of people who volunteered their time, equipment, and energy who we simply cannot thank enough.
