The Art of Business: Making a Living from your Music

A Panel Discussion Series

You’ve studied hard. You’ve practiced and practiced some more. You know what you want to do, but not sure how to do it. What’s next?

The Chicago Sinfonietta is proud to present a monthly Thursday evening discussion series offering insight from industry professionals to continue to nourish a vibrant arts community in Chicago and provide an overview on the different aspects of the profession. Each panel discussion will be followed by Q&A and networking.
