Bison Song featured at Mayor’s Arts Awards

October 16, 2020


District of Columbia mayor Muriel E. Bowser presented the 35th Annual Mayor’s Arts Awards in a virtual ceremony on September 30, and the Bison Song was prominently featured. This event honors creative talent from all eight of the city’s wards. In an effusive thank-you letter, Angie M. Gates, executive director of the D.C. Office of Cable Television, Fim, Music, and Entertainment, wrote, “Your contribution to our dynamic rich culture and your professionalism and artistry deeply enriched the experience for everyone who joined us for this historic performance.”

You may watch the entire Mayor’s Arts Awards ceremony; unfortunately, it is not captioned. The Bison Song begins at about 1:10:50. Enjoy!
