Career Jam Presents The Show
Career Jam 2022 culminates in The Show, curated and produced by Berklee alumni Rob Lewis ’94 (Christina Aguilera, Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1) and Ash Rodriguez ’09 (Lana Del Rey, John Legend, Robin Thicke).
"In this installment of The Show, we challenge the students to completely craft their visions as artists," says Lewis. "We love to assist in the development of these special artists and performers by mentoring and coaching them throughout the process, showing them how to translate their vision to live performance, and encouraging them to continuously discover and enhance their uniqueness to find their place in the ever-changing world of music."
