Harrisburg at night
Getting people out between Valentines Day and St. Patrick’s Day is a tough challenge for any destination and business district. The Millennium Music Conference will bring three hundred acts and artists to showcase…..hundreds more that participate from over sixteen states including locations throughout Pennsylvania. The hotels in Harrisburg will be filled and the restaurants for the weekend will present the showcases from the artists attending the conference. At the least, thirty restaurants will also become participants in this annual event.
The mention of cellos
The speakers at the conference have come to Harrisburg seeking talent. The event organizers have filled the showcases with just about every genre of music including classical music and it’s instrumental offshoots. Three artists under that category performing at this year’s event are:
A cello rock powerhouse featuring three cellists and a drummer, Cello Fury’s original music combines the emotive and symphonic sounds of the cello with driving rock beats to create a cinematic, progressive rock sound.

Most of the showcases are free and all opened to the public. The ability to create a close collaboration between all stakeholders in an event is extremely difficult. The Millennium Music Conference has successfully accomplished that challenge in the past and will so do again this year bringing tourism revenue to Harrisburg PA along with educational and career opportunities to a wide group of artists. Anthropologist Margaret Mead wrote, “ Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.” The 18th Annual Millennium Music Conference: 2 days of workshops, mentoring and trade show. Three nights of live music! Showcase schedules and conference information is available at www.musicconference.net.
