1.0 CLE / 1.2 CPE / 1.2 CEU
Sponsored by Arch + Beam
Thursday, October 28 | 2:15 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.

We’re in Music City! Tune in to top Nashville talent to gain an understanding of the economics and business side of the music industry. Find out how artists tapped into their creativity to survive the cancellation of live events. Has the music industry forever changed its tune as a result of COVID-19? Find out what Alan D. Valentine, President and CEO of the Nashville Symphony, has to say on the matter. Valentine presided over an unprecedented period of growth at the Symphony, highlighted by a total of 13 GRAMMY® Awards and 24 GRAMMY® nominations. Valentine shepherded the Nashville Symphony through the Great Recession of 2008-09, a catastrophic flood in 2010 which caused $40 million in damage to the Schermerhorn, and a troubled debt restructuring in 2013. Under his leadership, the institution emerged from these challenges with an unwavering commitment to its mission and artistic vision, subsequently achieving record-breaking ticket sales and fundraising.
