Dear Mr. Smith,

The Center for Economic Development (the Center) at Cleveland State University’s Levin College of Urban Affairs is conducting research on the Cleveland music sector commissioned by the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture.  The Center is looking to assemble a focus group for this project. The focus group will consist of individuals involved and associated with the Cleveland music sector in order to gain a full understanding of its components and economic impact.  On behalf of the Center and Community Partnership for Arts and Culture, we would like you to participate in this focus group because of your significant role in the Cleveland music sector.
The objectives of this focus group are to further vet and endorse the results of our study thus far and also to gather additional relevant information.  Your input and advice on these components are important to us as a way of finalizing the description of the Cleveland music sector.  With your help, we plan to further investigate all facets of the music sector.
