May 2-4, 2018, the Institute for Research in Music and Community (IRMC) at Brandon University hosted a conference designed to assist musicians in developing strategies and skills relating to their presence in the online world. Digital Strategies for Musicians included sessions on developing appropriate websites, managing social media, producing viral videos, online promotion and distribution, as well as a discussion of funding opportunities and sources.
The keynote speakers were Adrian Fung (featured in Fortune magazine among the Best and Brightest Executive MBAs as well as being a celebrated cellist and Associate Dean at University of Oklahoma’s Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts) and Michael Morreale (Director of Digital Content, Toronto Symphony Orchestra).
