The McKinney community is lucky to have so many talented musicians including many truly gifted singer-songwriters. Find them performing at many of the downtown restaurants and both wineries as well as a handful of restaurants across the city.
McKinney's Adriatica development is home to The Guitar Sanctuary, a full-service guitar shop and studio, with music instruction by some of McKinney's most talented musicians. Attached to this shop is a performance venue, The Sanctuary Music & Events, where concerts are held on a regular basis, both of Guitar Sanctuary students as well as some of the finest guitarists and singers in the country.
These musicians are also regularly featured at McKinney's downtown festivals throughout the year and during the annual Smiles Charity Concert held every Memorial Day weekend (on Sunday).
For those interested in classical music, the all-volunteer McKinney Community Band holds free concerts at the McKinney Performing Arts Center four times a year.
