Knowledge is Power!

The more you know about your field, the more you can position yourself for success. Singers often waste years slowly educating themselves on how the business works: How do I find audiences? How do I work in clubs outside of my hometown? Is it possible to take my skills and adapt them to a wider performing arts center market?

The Industry Panel gives you inside information on the state of the industry and how to be best position yourself within it. The Panel also offers a Conference wide discussion session on topics ranging from how their specific business works to building audiences and making your show succeed in a crowded field.

Past industry panel members have included producers, presenters, agents from around the country – a variety of leaders in the industry. Past panelists have included the following: Jennifer Tepper (54 Below-New York), Sidney Myer (Don't Tell Mama - New York), Shannon Forsell (The Cabaret -Indianapolis), Jim Dolan (Gaslight Cabaret Festival-St. Louis),  Lee Lessack (LML Music Presents-Los Angeles), David Folin (Allied Concert Services-Minnesota) and Lynn Lucius (The Wilson Center for the Arts - Brookfield, WI), Barry Kleinbort (Freelance Director- New York).
