Midwest Young Artists College Night

Congratulations to the MYA Young Professionals Board for an incredibly informative, insightful and interesting program last night.  It was truly well-done in every way.  The panel was diverse and balanced and each one of them contributed tremendously to the discussion.  The entire event was professionally executed - from the start with the printed panelist bios and well prepared, all encompassing questions from the moderator (George Ferguson) - to the end with questions from the audience, and the beautiful reception where people could meet and speak with the panelists.

Thanks to the panel which included: Ross Beacraft, Director of Admissions for the DePaul University School of Music; Naomi Bensdorf, performer and educator; Rachel Epley, music therapist and Horizon Hospice and Palliative Care in Chicago; Frank Feger, Associate Consultant at Mercer; Jarrard Harris, Director of MYA's Jazz Combo Program; Jason Heath, double bass performer, educator, blogger and podcaster; and Patrick Zylka, Coordinator of Music Admission and Financial Aid in the Henry and Leigh Bienen School of Music at Northwestern.
