Upcoming Alumni Events
Take a break from the Musikmesse and stop by for an early evening hang!
For all Berklee alumni attending Musikmesse or living in the Frankfurt area.
We'll be hosting an alumni get-together in the lobby of the Frankfurt Marriott Hotel.
RSVPs are encouraged.
Join your fellow Berklee alumni, parents, and friends from around the Miami area for an evening of mixing, mingling, and catching up on all things Berklee.
Hear from Berklee President Roger H. Brown about new and exciting initiatives at the college, the 2016 merger with the Boston Conservatory, and changes throughout Berklee and the industry.
Hear from Panos Panay, founding managing director of Berklee's Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship (ICE) about new and exciting initiatives at the college and changes throughout the industry.
Founding Managing Director, Berklee Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship
Panay is a passionate entrepreneur and active startup mentor in the creative media space. As the founder of Sonicbids, he created the leading platform for bands to book gigs and market themselves online, building a subscriber network of 550,000 bands and 35,000 promoters from more than 100 countries. He led the company as CEO for 13 years, from its inception until after its successful acquisition by Backstage LLC, in a deal backed by Guggenheim Partners.
Panay is widely credited for spotting and capitalizing early on three distinct emerging trends in the music business over the past decade: the shift to a primarily online means of marketing; the emergence of an “artistic middle class”; and the shift from a record-label funded industry to a consumer brand-funded music business.
India Arie will be interviewed by a Berklee student. Hear about her journey as an artist, the soulfulness and sincerity of her music, her e-book release titled SongVersation: I Am Light, colorism, and being a black woman in America and in the public’s eye and more.
Limited Seating: Due to the popularity of this event with the student body, there is limiting seating for alumni attendance.
NOTE: We will post the link for the live stream access on Facebook and Twitter the day of the event.
