Cultivating Your Career – A Workshop for Composers

@ 10:00am

A Workshop for Composers at Any Stage of Their Careers
Presented by the Canadian League of Composers

10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

This workshop is a new initiative presented by The Canadian League of Composers designed to foster professional growth for composers at any stage of their careers.

In the Presenters Panel (10:00AM-12:30PM), some of Vancouver’s most active presenters, with national and international connections in diverse contemporary musical media, will discuss their visions, what they’re looking for, how composers can put their music forward, and challenges and opportunities in the changing contemporary music scene.

Lunch (12:30PM-1:30PM) is included.

The Composers Panel (1:30PM-3:30PM) features five freelance composers with many years’ diverse experience discussing financial and artistic survival in today’s economic climate as well as opportunities in the changing workplace.

From 3:30PM to 5:00PM, Sal Ferreras leads a workshop on self-promotion for composers. Participants will have ample opportunities to ask questions, share their experiences, network, and make connections to the community.
