As a member of the New York City Council and Committee on Cultural Affairs, it is my distinct honor and privilege to recognize this organization for its steadfast commitment to “preserving, promoting and supporting live music within the underserved communities of Brooklyn.” Through your hard work and dedication, artists have an opportunity to nurture and share their talents with diverse audiences. As a result, Brooklyn has emerged as a hub for arts and culture – attracting thousands of New Yorkers and tourists who contribute to the economic growth of our city and state. I want to thank you for your many years of service to our community. Once again, congratulations to this Consortium and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
