Pacific to hold music business symposium focusing on music festivals

The Conservatory of Music, in cooperation with International Programs and Services and the Pacific Music Management Club, will be hosting the fifth Music Business Symposium on Oct. 12 at 9 a.m. in the DeRosa University Center Ballroom.
A variety of presentations by speakers will discuss Sweden’s impact on global music and the entertainment industry.
The program consists of lectures by professors from the School of Business and Economics at Linnaeus University in Sweden. The people and processes responsible for Sweden’s rise as a global music power, as well as the evolution of Scandinavia’s music festivals, will be examined.
In addition, these professors will host a panel discussion alongside Eberhardt School of Business’ Dr. Sacha Joseph-Matthews, associate professor of marketing, and Pacific alumnus Will Stevenson ‘07, who is the senior vice president at the Artery Foundation, which is a full service artist management company based in Sacramento.
Following the discussions, students from Professor Keith Hatschek’s Music Industry Analysis course will be sharing digital narrative presentations about Scandinavian artists, companies and producers such as Avicii, Spotify and Max Martin. With these presentations, attendees will appreciate the region’s successful global impact in the entertainment industry.
Pacific students and interested faculty, staff and alumni are welcome to attend free of cost.
The Symposium concludes shortly after noon, followed by a luncheon and an excellent networking opportunity; digital narratives will conclude at 2:30 p.m.
Come see what makes Scandinavia such a prominent manufacturer of global music and entertainment. For more information regarding the event and RSVP logistics, please contact Professor Keith Hatschek at khatschek@pacific.edu.
