Turn your passion into a sustainable livelihood! Join us for a conversation on arts entrepreneurship and gain insight into the challenges and opportunities encountered as both an artist and freelancer in the 21st century. Free and open to the public.

While people today are decrying the rise of the ‘gig economy,’ composer Jonathan Beard and violinist Lindsey Strand-Polyak will put this fear in the contexts of musicians in history, detailing how the freelance hustle has been always part of the musician’s life, and sharing unique ways in which musicians of the past have found creative solutions. They will also share their experiences as freelancers living in Los Angeles and give tips on managing a freelance career and entrepreneurship, from starting and managing a personal brand, to founding one’s own arts organization from the ground up.

Join the the artists afterwards for a meet-and-greet in the lobby with light refreshments provided.

The artists will perform "Bach Among Friends" on Wednesday, October 23 at 7:30pm. This event is free and open to the public.

Sponsored by the Department of Music and presented in partnership with the Modlin Center for the Arts
