Mayor McGinn just announced that, as part of the City of Music Initiative, he's put together a 21-member Music Commission that with a goal of "advancing the City of Music vision throughout the larger community and providing guidance and direction regarding the city's support of music." More specifically, the Commission will:

provide support, direction and advice to the city about the use of existing resources and priorities to ensure smart and meaningful investments to advance Seattle's music culture and business are made. The Music Commission will also be charged with engaging the private sector to recognize its role in making Seattle a great musical city and developing annual City of Music programs that support the goal of propelling Seattle's leadership role in music throughout the nation and the world.

Wait, so what are they doing? Curious to see how all this will play out/what kind of impact they'll make.
