We want to thank those of you who have continued to renew your memberships or have joined as a new member! We have not sent out reminders because we know that many of you are hurting financially and we don’t want to add to that hurt. Just know that COMBO appreciates you very much!
Also, it is that time of the year when we look for music-oriented people to join our board. If you think you’d like to spend some time with us, let us know. We hold board meetings once a month either via telephone conference or via Zoom. Send an e-mail to info@coloradomusic.org if you’re interested with your phone number and Barb will call you back to discuss.
COMBO is about the LOVE of Music. Our mission is to assist musicians with the ins & outs of the music industry. We offer guidance and advice to help musicians advance their careers whether it been in writing, performing, teaching, or recording and sound engineering! Our articles represent some phase of the music business that could effect musicians – all musicians – everywhere. Our motto: Elevate Your Musical State!
