Peter Freeman of IAMA, and Tim Robinson, NAPAMA board member, describe their organizations and representation for artists.
PLUS: At the invitation of the IRCPA, the CEO of Chamber Music America, Margaret Lioi, will describe the services and benefits available to Canadian musicians, including showcases in New York, networking with the more than 6,000 members, 25% of whom are jazz artists. Jazz pianist and composer Billy Childs is the recently elected president.
NEW!! Robert Baird, author of the Crossing Borders guides, will give border crossing tips including getting visas and work permits, and dealing with customs inspections when touring.
