2023 Black Music City Showcase

Hosted by: Seraiah Nicole

Presented by: WXPN, WRTI, REC Philly

After awarding more than $100,000 in grants to 48 recipients in 2022, Black Music City returns for a third year to fund and heighten recognition for new works by Philadelphia area Black creatives.

Come out and celebrate the unveiling of these projects that our 30 artists have worked so hard on over these last couple of months. It'll be a day full of art, music, and culture.

Sponsored by: William Penn Foundation, Fulton Bank, Aqua
