I'm the new Intern with the Pasadena Arts Council and I wanted to make sure that you knew about the Make Music Pasadena music festival that's coming up on Saturday the 21st. I'm not sure if you've been in contact with Megan before this, but it's going to be a great event and it would be excellent if you could share the information with your readers. It's an all-day, free festival with over 100 performers in all different genres. Our website is www.makemusicpasadena.com and I've copied a formal press release into the body of this email with more information.
Thanks so much!
