"What's the Future for Musicians?" — New York State Music Education Seminars

What's the Future for Musicians?

We've been meaning to make mention of a series of exciting (and free) events we're co-hosting in New York State throughout the month of April. But we've been so busy planning that we almost forgot to blog about them. Here's the official skinny:

Today’s music landscape is filled with both excitement and foreboding. With so many new technologies and ways to promote and distribute music, how do performers, composers, songwriters and independent labels know how to participate, who to trust and what is most effective?

FMC is partnering with American Federation of Musicians locals and other artist organizations around New York State to host free, daylong forums in Buffalo, Syracuse and Albany throughout April 2008.

These free seminars are designed educate musicians and label owners from a range of genres – classical, jazz, rock, folk and hip-hop – about the critical issues at the intersection of music, law, technology and policy, with the goal of better preparing musicians to participate in the issues that affect their livelihood.

The first of these events takes place in Buffalo on Wednesday April 2, at Livingston Hall (inside Kleinhans Music Hall). Click here for more information, and to RSVP.

Visit the main website to check out dates and programming for all of the events.

Hope to see you there!
