Creative Life in the Gateway Arts District

Community Support Music: Concert Series

Community Supported Music‘s Inaugural Event was a wonderful success. Over 40 people came to Joe’s Movement Emporium on July 25th for the Jazz & Film event. The gorgeous black and white film, Elevator to the Gallows played in the black box theater while a spell bound audience enjoyed Thad Wilson playing his original score simultaneously.

Community Supported Music (CSM) is a new program of the Gateway Community Development Corporation with the mission of supporting local musicians and bringing high quality music performances to venues of the Maryland Gateway Arts District.

“Local Music – Local Venues”
Generously supported by a grant from M- NCPPC, CSM kicks off it’s inaugural year with 5 concerts featuring eight local artists of varying styles.  CSM will also be hosting monthly open mic nights at Urban Eats Cafe and is open to musicians of all styles, ages, abilities, and performance experience.

Thanks to all who came, we’ll see you at the next CSM event!
