– During preparations for the city’s Cultural Plan, DC officials were only able to identify 360 residents who listed their occupation as a musician. As a result, DC will complete a music census to learn more about the role musicians play in the local economy. (WAMU, 11/8)
Anna Celenza, a music professor at Georgetown University, said she hopes the census results will influence the city’s Cultural Plan, and ultimately drive more city resources towards music. The plan was originally meant to be completed this past spring, but it is running behind schedule and is still in draft form.
“Until you know what the economic impact is, you can’t justify spending money,” said Chris Naoum of Listen Local First, an organization that raises awareness about D.C.’s local music scene. He hopes the census results will help set the agenda for Mayor Muriel Bowser’s next four years in office.
