Preserving and promoting New Mexico's rich musical heritage.
Partnering with the State’s Music Industry.
One of the tasks of the New Mexico Music Commission is to facilitate the creation of new partnerships and assist in nurturing existing partnerships in our community. We advocate bringing organizations and people to the table to create synergy in our diverse and widespread music community. The partnership section of our Web site is devoted to this role. It outlines key players with which we work on a regular basis: our affiliates, endorsements, grantees, and sponsors. It also further sheds light on our purpose and function as an advisory body to the state, dictated by our Statutes, Bylaws, and Strategic Plans.
