    A local working group including the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce, Future Sault Ste. Marie, the Algoma Conservatory of Music, the SSM Local Immigration Partnership, the Downtown Association, the Water Tower Inn and the Algoma Fall Festival are hoping to put a SPOTLIGHT on the community’s musical talent, music tourism, venues, hospitality services, production facilities, and encourage more economic opportunity around the music industry.

    According to the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce,

    A vibrant music economy drives value for cities in several important ways: job creation, economic growth, tourism development, city brand building and artistic growth. A strong music community has also been proven to attract other commercial investment, along with talented young workers who put a high value on quality of life, no matter their profession.

    The Sault Chamber has partnered with its sponsors, Music Canada, Destination Northern Ontario, Algoma University, the Community Development Corporation of Sault Ste. Marie & Area, Long & McQuade Musical Instruments and The Water Tower Inn to host a day of events.

    Join us on Thursday, October 17th between 11:30am – 1:30pm, as we welcome a dynamic panel of guests and local stakeholders addressing our community to launch Music City Sault Ste. Marie.

     ‘The Mastering of a Music City: Music City SSM’, will kick off with a special luncheon event featuring key note addresses from,

    • Singer / Songwriter Carole Pope
    • Chris Campbell, Director of Culture & Entertainment Tourism with Tourism London
    • David MacLachlan, executive director of Destination Northern Ontario.

    Together, the following panelists will discuss the various economic, marketing and job opportunities driven by the music industry.

    • Singer / Songwriter Carole Pope
    • Chris Campbell, Director of Culture & Entertainment Tourism with Tourism London
    • David MacLachlan, executive director of Destination Northern Ontario.
    • Local musician Sean Halliday of the Local Immigration Partnership
    • Asima Vezina, vice chancellor and president of Algoma University

    The luncheon is complimentary to attend for interested participants and community stakeholders, however space is limited and advance registration is required.

    Registration is available on the Chamber of Commerce website at www.ssmcoc.com/events.

    Later that day, between 5pm and 7pm at The Water Tower Inn, there will be an Industry Night Networking Event to bring together everyone that has a background or interest in music or the local music industry.

    The event is free to attend and will be hosted by Greig Nori of Trebble Charger and will offer information and performances.
