Free admission - no registration required

Study of music can lead in many directions in a world where the music business is constantly changing. What do music students do once they graduate? Five graduates from the Schulich School of Music will tell us about their careers and challenges after graduation, and the entrepreneurial spirit that led them to where they are today. What place does performance have in their lives? How do we keep classical music alive and relevant to today’s audiences? Join us during McGill Innovation Week 2016 in celebration of McGill’s new Music Entrepreneurship minor. A viewing of Jonathan Keijser’s film “What Would Beethoven do?” will follow the panel.
