Saturday Seminar Nov. 6: How Does Community Engagement Fit Into Your Career Path?

November 4, 2010

On Saturday, November 6 the Yale School of Music will host a Saturday Seminar featuring three dynamic musicians and industry leaders: Visiting Professor Brian Lewis, with River Oaks Chamber Orchestra founder Alecia Lawyer and 2006 YSM graduate Paul Murphy, principal trumpet of CityMusic Cleveland. Their workshop will focus on Community Engagement as not only a vital, but a necessary skill for any career in music and the arts.

We call it Community Engagement instead of Community Outreach because of the engagement between and among audiences and performers. Musicians do not just reach out with their music; they engage all audiences, ages, and cultures through their performances. This event will discuss steps the panelists took to be successful in their own performance careers and the innovative choices they made and programs they created to deeply tie their art to their community.

It is not enough to simply play an instrument well.  Community Engagement is THE skill musicians need for every aspect of their future careers.

How Does Community Engagement Fit Into Your Career Path, and What Does it Mean Anyway?

Led by: Brian Lewis with Alecia Lawyer and Paul Murphy

When: Saturday, November 6th, 11 am – 1 pm

Where: on the stage of Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Hall
