Texas Music Office at UTSA’s Music Biz Day 2017
The Texas Music Office staff joined the University of Texas at San Antonio's second annual Music Biz Day today, Saturday, April 29, 2017 in the UTSA School of Music. The conference was free and open to the public, taking place from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm at the UTSA Arts Building.
UTSA School of Music Professor and Music Marketing Coordinator Dr. Stan Renard came up with the concept last year in an effort to show the university's music students just how many resources, businesses, and opportunities there are located in San Antonio and around the state.
After a keynote speech from TMO Director Brendon Anthony (pictured on right), the small expo connected individuals who share a passion for music and seeks to bridge the gap between professionals in the music industry and students, allowing each to network and interact first-hand.
Topics for the conference's informational panels and workshops included: Show Biz and Commercial Music, Role of Radio and Press, Tech, Services for Musicians, Creating an Urban Identity, Venues and Ticketing, and Careers.
