Journeys in Music Talks

How do musicians and artists build unique pathways for their passions and art practices?

These FREE virtual talks are conversations with musicians of all types. At the heart of these dialogues is building understanding about how a musician or artist is made. How did they start playing? What inspired their studies? What was their journey to becoming a musician? These conversations are perfect for music students, artists, musicians, and community members interested in storytelling and learning more about the life of professional musicians. Talks will include a 45 minute video conference conversation with the below musicians and the Conservatory Head Christa Eidsness then 15 minutes at the end for questions and answers.

Please note: talks will be recorded. If you keep your camera and microphone off during the video conference call, you will not be included in the recording. Questions can be submitted through the chat function for those who do not wish to be recorded.
