The Seattle Music Commission and Seafair, came together in 2016 to form a new partnership - City of
Music @ Seafair. This partnership helps showcase the city's expansive array of musical talent by weaving music throughout Seafair events.
A key aspect of this partnership included nominating and
appointing a City of Music @ Seafair – Music Ambassador. This person would give voice to this dynamic partnership and represent
Seattle City of Music
