I’m off to Fredonia, NY where I’ll be speaking to the students and members of the Ethos New Music Society about building a career without going broke and how to approach related challenges without letting them drain inspiration.
Originally scheduled for last year, I had to cancel due to the flu and am very happy we were able to find a new time.
The speaker program is part of the Ethos New Music Society, a student-run and student-funded organization at the State University of New York at Fredonia. Founded in 1977, the Ethos produces four annual student concerts, the NewSound Festival, and oversees a composition program for middle school and high school student composers. The speaker series draws a wide range of professionals from inside the field to engage with members about topics of their choosing.
My thanks to the Ethos leadership team and Professor Rob Deemer, Associate Professor of Music Composition at Fredonia School of Music, for the invitation and their hospitality.
Guest lecturing is always a treat and you never know how these sessions will unfold. Once I’m back, I’ll see about writing a follow-up.
