Entrepreneurship – Learn to be Visionary and Practical
For young artists hoping to transform the world with their music, it takes more than practice and artistic vision to succeed. They need to understand how to:
- Manage an ensemble
- Protect intellectual property
- Find funding for projects
- Structure a business
Each day, one session will address these and other critical issues.
Instruction provided by members of the Escher String Quartet, who are out there doing it right now. It was not that long ago that the Escher String Quartet found themselves where CMI fellows are now. How they traveled the journey from students with dreams to artists living the dream is a story of special importance to CMI fellows.
