The Artist as Advocate
When: Tuesday, April 10, 6:30-8:15pm
What are the questions we should be asking ourselves about what we do? What’s the role of an artist in society? How are the landscapes of our musical culture shifting? Where might there be opportunities, both here and abroad?
Join Project Jumpstart for special evening event with IU guest conductor Scott Sandmeier, an American musician who has lived in Europe for many years. The discussion will be aimed at helping you to better understand some of the differences in American and European musical cultures, and to help to define as your role as a musical contributor. Bring your questions, ideas, and appetite! Project Jumpstart will provide dinner!
