Tunes at Noon launches to­day in Syd­ney

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON - BY CAPE BRE­TON POST STAFF

There will be mu­sic in Syd­ney’s down­town each Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon over the next sev­eral weeks.

The Syd­ney Down­town De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion and the Cape Bre­ton Mu­sic In­dus­try Co­op­er­a­tive have an­nounced the launch of Tunes at Noon, which will kick off to­day and con­tinue each Wed­nes­day un­til early Oc­to­ber. As part of Tunes at Noon down­town mer­chants will spon­sor a lo­cal mu­si­cian to pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment in front of their es­tab­lish­ment from noon un­til 2 p.m. Mu­si­cians will also ac­cept do­na­tions.

The idea be­hind it all is to pro­mote lo­cal mu­si­cians and give peo­ple more to en­joy in down­town Syd­ney.

“Tunes at Noon is one of sev­eral ini­tia­tives that the Syd­ney Down­town De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion and mer­chants are un­der­tak­ing to help re­vi­tal­ize down­town Syd­ney,” said as­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Janelle Os­borne, not­ing that a study by Pure Pro­ject Re­la­tions in 2014 found that lo­cals want more mu­sic in the down­town. “It cre­ates a fes­tive at­mos­phere that ben­e­fits both the mer­chants and peo­ple who come down­town to shop, eat and do busi­ness.”

Tunes at Noon is set to run un­til early Oc­to­ber and the dates have been cho­sen to co­in­cide with the cruise ship sched­ule.
