      Economic Impact

      A customized economic impact study sponsored by The Americans for the Arts has provided compelling new evidence that the Bemus Bay Pops Concert Series is a $14.7 million economic engine in Chautauqua County - one that supports 309 full time equivalent jobs and generates nearly $2.4 million in local and state government revenue.

      Bemus Bay, which spent $376,515.00 during fiscal year 2013, leveraged a remarkable $14.3 million in additional spending by attendees to its performances. These dollars pumped vital revenue into local restaurants, hotels, retail stores, parking garages, and other businesses.

      By providing that investing in the arts and culture yields economic benefits, The Arts and Economic Prosperity IV study of the Bemus Bay Pops lays to rest the misconception that the Bemus Bay community supports the Arts and Culture at the expense of local economic development. In fact, communities that support the arts and culture not only enhance their quality of life - they also invest in their economic well being.

      I have spent over 30 years creating and developing this stellar program of "Bringing the Arts to the People.”

      Music and the Arts are the universal bond of bringing people and communities together. People with purpose, goals and vision have no time for drama. They invest their energy in creativity and focus on living a positive life.

      Let's chat and discuss how we can work together, developing a program of social and economic success and happiness for everyone.

      Together we can do great things and “Make your Community a Destination.”

      “We can't control the winds, but we can adjust our sails."

      Let's have that conversation together.  The time is now. Contact me today.
