    A new episode of the original web series, Music Makes a City Now, debuts today, featuring a host of Louisville's native musical talent across many genres. From the University of Louisville's music school to the internationally acclaimed indie artist Bonnie Prince Billy, this special Music Makes a City event (MMAC14) brought together Louisville artists across the spectrum. If you missed the live show at Portland's Tim Faulkner Gallery in December of 2014, you can get a taste of the evening's unique flavor in this episode.

    The Music Makes a City Now web series follows the first-year adventures of Louisville Orchestra Music Director Teddy Abrams, and along the way offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of our talented orchestra musicians, visiting featured artists, and lots of local talent. It is brought to you by the same team that produced the award-winning film documentary that chronicled the history of the Louisville Orchestra from it's beginnings in the 1930s, backed by Mayor Charles Farnsley and led by legendary Conductor Robert Whitney.

    On December 6 of last year the Tim Faulkner Gallery hosted a one-of-kind collaboration between Maestro Abrams and genre-bending impresario Jecorey Arthur of the band 1200. Together, they organized a showcase of local music that featured the University of Louisville chamber orchestra, Tiny Elephant, Kyle James Hauser, A Lion Named Roar, 1200, and Will Oldham's band Bonnie Prince Billy. It was a celebration of Louisville's rich musical tapestry that highlighted diversity and community.

    See the latest episode, "All Together Now" and catch up with the rest of the series on YouTube.
