The MixMaster Music Conference, slated for Saturday, invites all people who are passionate about the music industry to come learn and make connections, regardless of their experience or lack thereof.
The conference kicks off at 10 a.m. Saturday with a keynote address by Erin McGrane on “What Works for Artists.”
McGrane will outline “key principles and concepts for sustainable careers in the arts and music. What Works is an introductory workshop outlining best practices for artists to create a sustainable career, based on sharing the common behavior of successful artist entrepreneurs,” according to the event website.
Panels and workshops throughout the day include “Get Booked, Get on Stage”; “Audio Mixing Psychology”; “Music Promotion: Growing your Audience”; “Artivism (Artist + Activism)” and many more. The event will include tours and workshops in the Sound + Vision Studio, a free resource in the library for audio and video work.
“This is the first in-person edition of the program since the pandemic, and the only music conference of its kind in the region,” according to a news release from organizers.
Events are set to run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9 at the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St.
The conference is free to attend, but registration is strongly encouraged as some sessions may fill up. Register and find more information about the event at mixmaster2023.com.
