Fall 2020 - Virtual Workshops & Concerts

October 2020
Fall 2020 Virtual Workshops! Vassar Students of all majors are invited to register by clicking anywhere on the picture.
Sat, Oct 3, 11:00am A Prelude to Entrepreneurship in the Arts

Virtual Workshop with Facilitator:
Dr. Yves Dharamraj, Adjunct Instructor of Cello

Do you have an arts project in mind but don’t know how to make it a reality? Artists have traditionally viewed the entrepreneurial skills needed to grow their projects and audiences as an obstacle to a success. This two-hour tele-workshop will demystify and introduce you to practical skills such as team building, managing expenses, fundraising, and getting the word out – the tools that will help creatives share their incredible ideas with larger audiences they deserve. The session is open to Vassar Students of all majors.

Register here by Thursday, October 1, 2020 
- link and information for webcast will be provided.

Space is limited. At this time only Vassar Students may register. We invite the public to check back soon for additional Fall 2020 Virtual Workshops and Concerts.

Sat, Oct 17, 11:00am Recording Techniques

Virtual Workshop with Facilitator: 
Drake Andersen, Visiting Assistant Professor

Today musicians are expected not only to give excellent performances, but also to produce high-quality recordings of their work, often on their own. Music department faculty member Drake Andersen will lead a two-part workshop on recording techniques designed for students who are just getting started making recordings. The workshop will be divided into two sessions: the first focusing on key concepts, vocabulary, and equipment, and the second focusing on technique. Q&A will follow.

Register here by Thursday, October 15, 2020
- link and information for webcast will be provided.

Space is limited. At this time only Vassar Students may register. We invite the public to check back soon for additional Fall 2020 Virtual Workshops and Concerts.
