Does our tax money pay for this, too?

So thrilled to hear about activities in town for teens. There are some very talented musicians and it's great that they have an opportunity to play for their friends and families. Since we have the park, have the band shell and already have music for the aging baby boomer crowd, I can't imagine the cost is much of a drain on our tax revenues.
