The Connecticut Office of the Arts is hosting a one day READI Set Music Conference on Oct. 7 to celebrate the state’s long musical history while also providing an opportunity where artists can gain the skills needed to succeed in the industry. The event will be hosted at the creative campus NXTHVN in New Haven from 10 a.m to 5 p.m.
“In recent years, there has been more and more talent uprising, creating and doing dynamic things but sometimes there is a lack in an organization structure to support the ecosystem and build infrastructure,” said Kolton Harris, the program manager at the state Office of the Arts. “We saw ourselves as a platform to galvanize that and bring people together.”
READI Set Music Conference will feature a handful of events like panel discussions, keynote speakers and live musical sessions to help artists not only elevate and enhance their craft to the next level, but also educate artists on the logistics of the music industry. There will be informational sessions on understanding how to protect intellectual property, music and music video production and networking opportunities.
