The Music Commission was established in February 2020 as one of the Ministry of Culture’s 11 sector-specific Commissions. The Commission is overseeing the development of a music sector that provides non-discriminatory access to music education, empowers musical talent and contributes to the local economy. It aims to increase the economic contribution of the music sector through job creation, sector regulation and by building world-class infrastructure. The Commission hopes to discover, develop and empower musical talent by raising awareness of the Kingdom’s rich musical heritage, in turn elevating its musical identity both within the region and beyond.
