Like the opera, symphony, ballet or theatre, our local music is art. And as art, Black Fret believes our music is worthy of support from those whose lives are touched by it.

Black Fret provides those who love their local music with the opportunity to become a Patron of Local Music.

Together our Members, Advisory Board, volunteers and musicians are creating a vibrant community to support local music, now in both Austin, Texas and Seattle, Washington.

At the end of 2020 each nominee will receive a grant from Black Fret to help with their musical journey.
