2017’s Industry Panel will be announced in January 2017
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 – a variety of leaders in the industry. 2015’s Panel included the following: from top New York venues 54 Below (Jennifer Tepper) and Don’t Tell Mama (Sidney Myer), Shannon Forsell, Executive Director of The Cabaret at The Columbia Club in Indianapolis, Jim Dolan of the Gaslight Cabaret Festival in St. Louis and Lee Lessack from the nationally recognized agency LML Music Presents, David Folin of Allied Concert Services and Lynn Lucius of The Wilson Center for the Arts.
