There is no question that the world of streaming media has changed the way artists create, distribute, and capitalize their musical talents. Streaming music has unlocked other new questions for the musician and fan alike: of ownership, of taste and of morality. Do we listen differently when we have unlimited options? Does the rise of the streaming service eliminate the very need for a library of one's own, or does it just change how we acquire and interact with that library? Do your musical preferences belong to you? What role do listeners play in ensuring the life of music and the livelihood of musicians?
Join your fellow Berklee alumni and friends within the industry for an evening of mixing, mingling, and discussing the future of Music licensing, publishing, and streaming media.
Leave work early and enjoy the Berklee recipe for the perfect summer soirée. First, gather the finest alumni from around Manhattan, add the right mix of cold drinks and cooler conversation, and finish with a rooftop sunset that can’t be beat.

The venue is within walking distance of the convention center, with indoor and outdoor space for our party. Light refreshments will be served, and RSVPs are encouraged.
The annual Berklee LA Alumni Brunch is our community’s flagship event and our largest gathering of the year. This year, we will celebrate at the gorgeous Skirball Cultural Center with Roger H. Brown, Berklee’s president, who will be on hand to speak about new developments at the college and to introduce our keynote speaker: innovative artist; composer; performer; film, record, and concert producer; record company owner; and artists’ advocate T Bone Burnett, who recently visited Berklee’s Boston campus.
The event will include music from Dr. Magpie, an acoustic, improvisational alumni string ensemble, and a light buffet breakfast will be provided in a lovely courtyard with seating inside for attendees. With last year’s LA Alumni Brunch selling out at 400 attendees, it is the single largest alumni event that Berklee hosts—an event you don’t want to miss.
