2019 Music-Makers Information

2019 Music-Makers Badges are currently not available for purchase. If you are interested in more information on the Music-Maker Program, please email [email protected].

As a legion of several hundred, Music-Makers have helped to transform the music scene in our community into one of exploration, discovery and remarkable experiences. While we work toward full sustainability, we appreciate your consideration in either becoming a Music-Maker for the first time, or continuing on as a Music-Maker for yet another great year!

Becoming a 2019 Music-Maker is the best way for individuals to support the original music movement throughout the year. Along with corporate sponsors and ticket purchasers, Music-Makers make up the support base and are critical to the progress made in such a short time in establishing Appleton as a music destination for talented artists from across the country!
