It's hard to believe the end of 2019 is already here! It's been a very busy fall with the tour of Caravan du Nord, our Rock Gala, and lots of great workshops, networking events, and concerts. Our fall programming wraps up this next week with the year's final workshop this Sunday and the grand finale to the Landmark Live concert series tomorrow, featuring Carrie Elkin and The Falderals.

We'd like to thank all of you who have made this such a successful fall - including our amazing Board of Directors, volunteers, and the donors who helped us reach our Give to the Max Day fundraising goals and enabled us to continue to make Minnesota the best place for musicians to live and work. We couldn't do this without you, and we couldn't be more grateful for all that you do support MN music and the artists who make it.

From all of the MMC staff, we hope you enjoy a wonderful, music-filled holiday, and that we see you in the new year!
Workshop: Mental Health for Musicians
Our monthly workshop series continues with an inside look at mental health and the music community.

Feeling more lonely and sad during the holiday season? How can you cope and have the best season you can? Need some ways to cheer yourself up? This workshop will cover all of that and a bit more! From how hard this season can be with loneliness, depression, and seeing early signs that something is not right, to ways to make the season the best it can be with resources, music and art, and more.

Workshop Lead: Samantha Hedden, Outreach Coordinator for 
Mental Health Minnesota

NoVox Becomes SnowVox!
Our monthly, all-instrumental performance series continues through the New Year--with a twist! Starting in January, we will be making the shift from no vocals performances to highlighting Minnesota's singer/songwriters in the warm, cozy & newly renovated Ratskeller at Summit Brewing. Taking place on the 2nd Thursday of the month, our SnowVox series debuts on January 9th with Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter Dan Israel! 

Dan Israel is a longtime fixture on the Minneapolis music scene. He was the first guest on 89.3 The Current’s “Local Show” and has been called “the hardest working singer-songwriter in Minnesota.” He has released 15 critically acclaimed albums, including his latest, 2019’s “Social Media Anxiety Disorder.”
