OCALA, Fla. (Nov. 1, 2017) – The Marion Cultural Alliance (MCA), in partnership with the City of Ocala, is in the running for a second year to bring a 10-week live music series to Ocala during the summer of 2018 at historic Webb Field at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation Complex, 1510 NW Fourth St. Online public voting for the 2018 Levitt AMP [Your City] Music Series is open now through Monday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time (5 p.m. Pacific Time).

The top 25 finalists following the online public voting will advance to the next stage in the grant awarding process. The Levitt Foundation will review the proposals of those 25 finalists and will select up to 15 Levitt AMP winners, which will be announced Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018. To vote, please visit grant.levittamp.org/voter-registration-page, create an account and look for “Marion Cultural Alliance.”

“Marion Cultural Alliance is excited about the prospect of winning a second Levitt AMP concert series for Ocala next summer,” said Jaye Baillie, Executive Director for MCA. “The community’s response to last summer’s Levitt AMP concert series was wonderful to watch. Folks young and old from communities across our city enjoyed 10 weeks of dancing, swaying and singing on the great green lawn at historic Webb Field.”

Sponsored by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a national foundation dedicated to strengthening the social fabric of America through free live music, the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards is a matching grant opportunity created to serve small to mid-sized towns and cities with populations up to 400,000 residents. Up to 15 non-profit organizations will receive $25,000 each in matching funds to produce their own Levitt AMP Music Series – an outdoor, free concert series featuring a diverse lineup of professional musicians.
