The American Jazz Museum is pleased to announce its 2012 Musicians & Artists Pro- Symposium, an informal career and business development luncheon and workshop.
The annual Musicians & Artists Pro-Symposium is sponsored through the generous support of US Bank, as part of its community development activities. All independent and professional artists of all disciplines are invited to attend, at no cost, courtesy of US Bank.
The first annual Musicians & Artists Pro-Symposium event is Saturday, April 14th. The 2012 symposium begins with an 11 AM artists appreciation luncheon on the American Jazz Museum campus located at 1616 E. 18th Street, Kansas City, Missouri.
Just as in most every other field, artists and musicians need guidance as they build their artistic careers and individual support businesses," states Dennis Winslett, the American Jazz Museum's Director of Education, who also came up with the concept and design of the Musicians & Artists Pro-Symposium.
The annual Musicians & Artists Pro-Symposium is designed to assist independents and professionals toward developing viable strategies that ultimately will lead to both, career and business success. A major feature that Mr. Winslett built into the annual program is presenting an informal and interactive session segment among attendees with successful artists and musicians of national and international acclaim. Selected panelists will share relevant aspects of their individual successful career strategies with attendees in an informal career and business development roundtable-type of discussion format.
The 2012 Musicians & Artists Pro-Symposium panel is comprised of an impressive array of artists and musicians, featuring:
o Maurice Brown
, Grammy award-winning trumpeter
o Logan Richardson
, international recording saxophone artist
The 2012 Musicians & Artists Pro-Symposium also includes several brief presentations on key related topics. The event sponsor will share valuable and practical information on money and banking, and others will provide guidance on career planning and marketing and branding.
As a cultural arts institution, the American Jazz Museum is committed to supporting artists and musicians in the community. Our intent is to bring together aspiring artists and musicians with high achievers as a means to facilitate formal and informal mentoring and networking. And, this event is also about saying 'thank you' to the artisans of our community and providing tangible career resources toward empowering them," Mr. Winslett concluded.
