Professional Development Session: The Gainfully Employed Composer


Event Details

Composer Dan Visconti joins ACO President Melissa Ngan to cover the nuts-and-bolts of the self-employed composer’s back office, ranging from the best equipment and paper to use to best practices for maximizing passive income through sales and rentals.

Composer Dan Visconti is updating the role of the classical musician for the 21st century as he creates new projects in collaboration with the community. For his ongoing initiatives to address social issues through music by reimagining the arts as a form of cultural and civic service, Visconti was awarded a 2014 TED Fellowship and delivered a TED talk at the conference’s thirtieth anniversary.
